Friday Favorites!

Hello, and Happy Friday!

Today I'm sharing an idea I devised last Spring ~

A stuffed egg tray, with a twist.

Almost everyone I know loves stuffed eggs, but they can be high in fat and calories.

I wanted to incorporate a lighter alternative on the plate for some guilt-free pleasure and came up with this idea~

Fresh, crispy salad 'Basket' Bites!

Mini filo cups* filled with fresh baby spinach chiffonade,

topped with a cube of marinated blue cheese (or feta), then lightly drizzled with your favorite viniagrette.

*The mini filo cups may be purchased frozen ~

I bake them off for a few minutes to crisp them, cool then fill.

You can also make your own, using 3 stacked layers of thawed filo dough, brushed with olive oil or butter, then cut into rounds with a sharp round cookie cutter and eased into mini-muffin or tart pans (spray with cooking spray first).

Baked until crisp. Allow to cool before filling.

If you make these, I hope you like them as much as my friends and family do.

Thank you so much for stopping by~

  1. Wow, I'm salivating as I type! I love the idea of alternating eggs and phillo cups! I will so try that for Easter.

  2. Hello Mari...

    I've always looked forward to Friday...the gateway to the weekend! wink! And now, they've become even better!


  3. What a super idea. I also make deviled eggs for the family, but this would be such a treat to add to the dish. I can see endless possibilities for these. Thanks for the suggestion and recipe. Hugs, Marty

  6. I love the idea of a "Friday Favorites". I'm quite a "keeper" of things from our past, so will have fun coming up with new things. As a matter of fact, the eggs brought back a very special memory. When I was in Girl Scouts, deviled eggs was the very first thing I ever made to earn my cooking badge. An apron was my first thing to make to earn my sewing badge. Do you think my destiny was set for me then? I believe it might have been! Thanks for sharing! Sandi

  7. I've never made a deviled egg in my life, but yours sure are pretty. I little filo dough salad cups look delish too.
