Cheesy Puff Pastry Bites


I have been trying ALL the different things with puff pastry the past couple of weeks and these mini cheesy bites were a BIG hit at my house!!  I got my inspiration for these from the mini quiches I make with pie pastry dough and let me tell you, these little bites of yumminess did not disappoint.  I used my favorite premade refrigerated puff pastry dough from Wewalka which makes these almost too easy to throw together.  (Who wants to spend time layering all that dough and butter to make that from scratch?!?!?)

My favorite thing about this appetizer is that you can switch them up a bit by choosing different cheeses or spices.  (I think Gruyere would be heavenly!)  I had never used Za'atar seasoning before, (a Mediterranean blend), but found it to be a nice little punch of flavor.  Herbes de Provence would be another seasoning blend you could substitute that would give them a different pop!

Ingredients:
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Za'atar seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • A few grinds of freshly cracked black pepper
Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425.  Lightly spray a 24 count mini muffin pan with no stick spray and dab each cup with a paper towel to leave just a very light coating. 
  2. Unroll the phyllo dough and cut in to 24 equal squares.  (6 cuts along the long side and 4 cuts along the shorter side.)  
  3. Push one square down in to each muffin cup, (pic of what they look like down below.)
  4. Mix all remaining ingredients together well with a fork.  
  5. Place about 1 tsp of the mixture in each cup.  
  6. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.  
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and gently twist each bite to loosen and remove from the pan.  (You can use a sharp knife to loosen any spots where the cheese caught the pan.)  Cool and serve!
