      Feta in phyllo is one of my favs but I usually just use egg as a binder and if I add spinach or somethign it holds it together but this idea of making a roux first is really smart especially if you want to serve these to guests and keep them pretty. ( no unwanted cheese bursting). I will definately use this tip and the mixture came out nice and thick and easy to fold. I did large triangles and used the thick country phyllo and added some garlic and crushed red pepper and skipped the nutmeg. Everyone enjoyed thanks Alli. Made for ZWT 6 for Looney Spoon Phoodies.
