Spinach and Feta Crowns

It's the middle of the week again and I know that most of us don't have much time to bake when we have so many other important things on our to-do lists. You know me, I love baking from scratch, yet I find puff pastry a bit too complicated! So I bought a block of puff pastry and made these simple but delicious Spinach and Feta Crowns. If you only have half an hour this week to spare and want to bake something to nibble on, go for this one! ❤️


These Spinach and Feta Crowns are quick and easy to make, perfect when you want to munch on something but not spend hours prepping it. Tasty on their own, with fresh cherry tomatoes, or as an accompaniment to your favourite glass of white wine. Enjoy 🥂

Scoop a little filling over each square, dividing the mixture evenly, then grab two opposite corners of a square and bring them towards the middle and pinch them together. Then do the same with the other two corners as well. Repeat with the rest. 5. Transfer the little parcels onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper and brush them with the egg yolk. 6. Pop the tray into the preheated oven and bake the Spinach and Feta Crowns for about 15-20 min. Once removed from the oven, transfer them onto a cooling rack for a few minutes. Enjoy hot or cold.
