Tyropita Appetizer Bites / SundaySupper

Today for Sunday Supper, we are celebrating the new movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2", which opened in theaters this past Friday. I made Tyropita Appetizer Bites and we all made some Greek food to share with you, because it's not a party without great food!
These Tyropita Appetizer Bites are a great way to get the party started! Fillo dough filled with four cheeses, then baked to a golden finish are really simple and quick to make. I served them with a little bit of strawberry jam for a touch of sweetness.

Spread some of melted butter on the top piece of fillo, using a pastry brush. There is no need to saturate the fillo, just brush it on, lightly covering the filo. Place 1 tablespoon of mix and place it on the bottom of the sheets of cut fillo.

Fold the corner of the filo over the top of the mix, forming a triangle.
