Easy but Impressive Appetizers!

Stop by the store today for a list of our favorite easy but
impressive appetizers using Wild Tymes, Stonewall Kitchen
or other gourmet food items. Whether you want to buy and serve
or cook a little, we have something for you!

Here is one I tried just the other night for a get together- YUM:

Spanikopitas with Apricot Cherry Jam and Roquefort Cheese
Serves: 6
8 oz. Stonewall Kitchen Apricot Cherry Jam
1 box filo dough
8 oz. Roquefort Bleu cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small onion, cut in fine dice
2 cups chopped spinach
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 oz. melted butter

In a large saucepan sauté the onion in the olive oil until onions are soft.
Add spinach and sauté 1 minute. Turn off pan.
Season with salt and pepper, then cool mixture. Add jam and crumbled Roquefort.
To Assemble:
Lay a filo sheet on a work surface. Brush with melted butter. Repeat three times.
Spread bleu cheese and spinach mixture onto the filo.
Roll up filo making sure to tuck in ends.
Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees until golden brown. Cool and slice into 3/4 inch slices.
