Number of Servings: 100


    1 lb. Feta cheese
    1 pt. cottage cheese
    1/4 c. Swiss cheese, grated
    4 eggs
    10 green onions, chopped
    10 oz. fresh spinach, finely chopped (or 1-10 oz. pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and drained)
    1 tsp. parsley, minced
    1 lb. filo pastry
    1 lb. butter, melted


Combine all the cheese and eggs in a large bowl and mix well. Add onions, spinach and parsley, and blend well.

Cut the filo pastry into strips 2 1/2 to 3 inches wide. Brush a strip with melted butter and then place 1 teaspoon of cheese-spinach mixture on the strip, centered 1 inch from end. Fold one corner over in a triangle, and then continue turning over the triangle to the end of the filo strip (just as in folding a flag). Place each triangle as it is made on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

When done, remove the triangles from the sheet immediately and serve hot. (They may also be rolled, stacked between sheets of wax paper and frozen in airtight containers. When they are needed, separate them while frozen, place on baking sheets and bake as directed, with about 10 additional minutes of baking time.)
