~Spinach & Sausage Nibblers~

 
 
I have already put another similar recipe but this looks good so thought what a great idea to take on picnics etc.

Same filling used in 2 different styles of nibbles.

The first uses phyllo or samosa's sheets,  cups and the second uses refrigerated crescent roll dough.  Both are very easy and very tasty.

 
  • Few bundles of chopped spinach, drained and pressed
  • 1 cup ricotta or Cheddar cheese  
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • Few sausages, boiled or fried (your preference as I like to fry) browned and drained
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbs dry plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 48 small phyllo cups (about the size of mini muffins) -OR-
  • 2 rolls refrigerated crescent roll dough or pastry dough. 
Mix together all above ingredients except phyllo cups.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place a heaping teaspoon of spinach mixture in each cup. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until filling is set and phyllo cups are golden brown.

If using crescent roll dough, preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place about 1 tbs of filling at the wide end of the triangle and roll up as for crescent rolls.  Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

If you prefer to make the cups from phyllo sheets, you will need approximately 12 sheets and 1/4 cup melted butter and a mini muffin pan. 

Separate the stack of 12 sheets in to 2 stacks of 6 sheets.  Brush layers with melted butter and cut into 3-inch squares.  You will use 1 3-inch stack per cup.  Fit one sheet in cup, letting sides overhang.  Repeat with remaining 5 sheets, overlapping each previous sheet.  Repeat until all cups are filled.  There is an excellent video on You Tube by "fifteenspatulas," showing how this is d
one, and there are lots other yummy recipes there.

Alhamdullilah

Alhamdullilah

Say Alhamdullilah

Whatever happens is by the Will of Allah, whether it be good or bad. Sometimes we forget Allah when it comes to happy moments, but immediately turn to Him for the bad. We should always be thanking Allah (SWT) for His infinite blessings, even in the tough times. He still gives and gives and we don’t even ask. The mercy of our Lord is beyond.. Subhna’Allah. “Its better a calamity that turns you to Allah, than a blessing that makes you forget Allah”
Always say Alhamdulillah for everything….
