Filo.

What bite sized nibbles can I make with filo without frying? I hate frying stuff, but I have to make some nibbles for tommorow nights book club (I also need to start reading the book but thats another story...)and have filo in the freezer.

Also, they won't be served hot, but possibly could be served warm.

Any ideas you wonderful lot?

I reckon you can cut the filo into tiny squares, brush with butter & layer x3 in mini muffin cases, bake as normal & fill with stuff thereafter, like vol au vents - maybe prawns etc, or I am sure you can make mini samosa type parcels brushed with butter before folding, & bake in the oven? Filling of choice, but you could do cubes cooked potato, finely chopped green chilli, peas etc for veg option, or go with a paneer filling with coriander & spices, or finely chopped chicken with mushrooms etc?

Sam does great samosas James , I think mini ones would be lovely . You can do both veggie and meat fillings. One of the nicest receeps I did was a Rosemary Conley recipe which was small Filo parcels (long cigar shaped but mini) filled with a spicy Aubergine mix .

Forgot to add that samosas and the Aubergine parcels can be baked in the oven .

oh james...
samosa's, lamb and veg in my profile (think my chicken tikka are in my profile too - not sure on that)...

and you can do sweet ones to, with apple and raisins in.

baked in the oven.

served totally cold, or pre cooked and warmed through for a few mins - not nuked though.

or in your little lakeland mini morsel tin, lay little squares to over lap, and fill with "okay the dreaded" onion chutney with a chunk of camembert/mozzarella/gruyere on top.

stuff with spinach and ricotta, just like SAMosa's or make square parcels.

think along the lines of vol u vents...and the world is your oyster, for filling ideas - its just how you present or wrap them.

Filo - Thanks!

Hi Guys,

THanks for all your ideas. I've saved them for future use. Book club was cancelled in the end until next month as quite a few of us had not had time to read the book, but some good ideas for future use there!

Thanks!
