These cute bundles of cottage cheese and swiss chard are actually phyllo dough baskets baked in muffin pans, filled with cottage cheese and swiss chard.
- 4 phyllo dough sheets
- 10.5 oz (300 g) cottage cheese
- 3.5 oz (100 g) feta cheese
- 2 eggs
- 8.8 oz (250 g) swiss chard
- salt, pepper
- Lightly grease muffin pans.
- Take phyllo sheets and cut them into 3.9 inch by 3.9 inch (10 x 10 cm) squares. Stack 5 squares onto each other, brush each with melted butter or vegetable oil. Put stacked squares into muffin pans so that they form baskets.
- Combine eggs with salt and pepper, add feta and cottage cheese. Boil swiss chard for several minutes, drain well, chop and add to the filling. Fill phyllo dough baskets with this and bake for about 30 minutes at 392 F (200 Celsius).
