It’s always (always) a good idea to have a fast and fancy appetizer recipe up your sleeve. Even better? When that recipe is flaky and cheesy and calls for just two ingredients, both of which you probably have on hand. Yes, such a recipe exists and we can guarantee your guests will be clamoring for more. We can also say with authority that a couple of these paired with mixed greens makes for a mighty fine lunch.

Give Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges a Flaky Upgrade

The star of these two-ingredient, two-bite triangles is Laughing Cow cheese wedges. Each wheel comes with eight aluminum foil-wrapped wedges that get folded inside phyllo pastry dough. Pick your favorite flavor, whether it’s classic Swiss or creamy white cheddar, and bake them in the pastry for about 15 to 20 minutes.

The cheese melts while the pastry bakes up to be golden and crisp. It’s a winning combination that’s easy to make and even easier to eat. (You may want to double the recipe.)

Nutritional Info

Ingredients

  • 3

    thawed phyllo pastry sheets

  • 12

    Laughing Cow cheese wedges

Instructions

  1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 375ºF.

  2. Unroll a phyllo pastry street and cut lengthwise into 4 strips, each about 3 1/2 inches wide.

  3. For each phyllo triangle, unwrap and place a Laughing Cow cheese wedge on the bottom left corner of one phyllo strip. Bring the lower left-hand corner of the strip up and to the right diagonally so the bottom edge of the strip lines up with the right side of the strip, creating a triangle. Fold the pocket upwards and then to the left and so on, as you would fold a flag. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining phyllo pastry sheets and cheese wedges.

  4. Bake until golden-brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
