Impress your guests with these starters using Athens® or Apollo fillo dough.
16 sheets Athens® Fillo Dough (9” x 14”), thawed
Cooking spray, as needed
2 cups savory or sweet filling
Preheat the oven to three hundred seventy five degrees. Lay a sheet of fillo dough on the work surface and lightly spray with cooking spray. Lay another sheet on top and spray again. Repeat with a third layer of fillo. Add five of the remaining fillo sheets without cooking spray to reduce calories and fat.
Trim the fillo stack to form a 7 inch by 14 inch rectangle. Cut this large rectangle in half into squares.
Place a half cup of savory or sweet filling in the center of a fillo square.
Fold the fillo in half to form a large triangle and seal the edges. Place the turnover on an ungreased baking sheet. Spray the top of the turnover. Repeat to create four turnovers.
Bake turnovers for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Serve immediately.
Sprinkle the tops of the turnovers with cheese, breadcrumbs, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar etc. depending on if the recipe is sweet or savory.
