- 100g butter or margarine
- 120g plain flour
- 650ml warm milk
- 3 eggs
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ½ teaspoon grated cinammon
- 350g Greek fetta, grated
- 500g filo pastry
- 125g butter or margarine, melted
- Sesame seeds (optional)
Melt the butter or margarine in a pan over a medium heat, then add the flour and stir for 5 minutes.
Add the milk a little at a time,stirring with an egg whisk all the time until the mixture is smooth. Remove pan from heat.
Add the fetta cheese, eggs, pepper, nutmeg and a pinch of salt and mix well.
Let the cheese filling cool.
In the meantime lay the filo pastry out flat and cut it lengthwise in strips 5cm wide
Take 2 fillo strips at a time and brush them with the remaining melted butter. To create the traingle shape take one corner of the filo and fold it so that a dessertspoonful of the filling is covered by a triangle of pastry 5cm x 5cm x 7cm. Continue to fold the filo strip so that a number of layers are built up and the triangle shape is maintained.
Put the pastry triangles on a greased baking sheet, brush them with the remainder of the melted butter and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. Bake in the oven at 180C (350F/Mark4) for 35 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Good to eat either hot or cold.
