Making food from scratch is fun and usually totally worth the effort, but phyllo dough is one of those items you can buy pre-made, store in the freezer, and whip out whenever you need a last-minute snack. Besides the Greek classics like baklava, we've collected some great ways to use store-bought phyllo dough.
Baked Cheese and Bacon Jam Bites. Use store-bought phyllo cups for this easy, cheesy recipe. If you have sheets of phyllo dough on hand, cut out circles slightly larger than the cups of a mini cupcake pan and fit them inside.
Chicken Wellington. An updated version of beef Wellington, bake chicken breasts in phyllo dough (or puff pastry dough) for a deceptively simple entrée.
Mushroom and Bacon Triangles. This easy appetizer is filled with gooey melted cheese, crispy bacon, and herbed sautéed mushrooms.
Spinach Phyllo Roll-Ups. Think of these roll-ups as individual servings of spinach dip. Party guests will love that they don’t have to avoid double dipping.
Wrapped Pears with Vanilla Bean Sauce. Baked pears for the people who don’t like baked pears. Drizzle vanilla simple syrup over pears wrapped and baked in phyllo dough for a simple and elegant dessert.
