Happy Friday everyone? .... Where did the days in this week just go??? Did you find it confusing as well with Monday, May 1st being a public holiday or was it just me? Anyway its Friday, we made it to the weekend and I have got the most amazing recipe for you to try this weekend.
Especially if you are having a party or a friends and family get together .These Mini Tramezzini with Creamed Spinach, Feta and Sweet Pepper are one bite....maaaaybee three bites adorable little triangular sandwiches. This is also a great if you are looking for a vegetarian snack option. They make perfect snacks, a great lunchbox idea or even serve as an appetizer. A tramezzini is basically a little triangular sandwich made using bread,with crusts removed ( I found this little piece of info on Wikipedia?)
A few months ago , I shared a post on STIR FRIED VEGETABLES IN HOMEMADE PITA BREAD and instead of using plain shop bought bread for the trammezini, I made it using the pita bread from this post. It is sooooo delicious, fluffy, aromatic and its homemade. It goes perfectly with the Creamed Spinach, Feta and Sweet Pepper filling.
The Creamed Spinach, Feta and Sweet Pepper filling is really simple to prepare. If you are using the recipe for the pita, then prepare this filling while the pita dough is rising.
Creamed Spinach, Feta and Sweet Pepper filling
The spinach grows like crazy in my garden, so I am always looking for recipes to use it in and this is one of my favourite ways to use it. The spinach is just roughly chopped and cooked with onions, garlic and slices of red bell pepper. The cream which is added to the spinach while it is cooking gives the spinach a smooth and velvety feel and makes it taste so so so good. Add the cream about halfway before the spinach is cooked because it needs to reduce and thicken a bit. Just ensure that when you add the cream, you should stir the spinach often, because it tends to stick to the bottom of the pan and could burn easily.
Then simply cut through the baked pita and place the cooked filling onto one half, cover and using a heavy based frying pan, toast the pita on both sides until it is lightly brown. Cut it into 4 triangles and there you have your perfect Mini Tramezzini with Creamed Spinach, Feta and Sweet Pepper. Simple but impressive looking at the same time......perfect for weekend snacks.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone ♥
