This delicious, healthy substitute for other prepared dough means you can still enjoy your favorite comfort foods guilt-free without sacrificing taste.
Baked crisp and golden, Athens Fillo Dough contains zero saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol. Found in the dessert section of your grocer’s freezer aisle, it also comes in convenient 9 by 14 inch sheets to fit your baking pans and dishes perfectly.
Fillo dough serves as a delicious substitute in numerous casseroles ranging from breakfast to dinner, and here are just a few suggestions to keep your healthy resolutions on track for the New Year:
- Start your weekend morning off with a hearty Phyllo Egg Brunch Casserole, filled with tasty turkey, vegetables and cheese.
- Enjoy a savory dish filled with fresh greens like the Baby Greens & Herbs Phyllo Pie or healthy grains like the Mediterranean Quinoa Casserole.
- If you’re counting calories but craving pizza, fillo dough serves as an excellent substitute to pizza dough. Phyllo flatbreads are a piece of cake (well…pizza) to make. Top with your favorite fresh ingredients or take a stab at creating your own BBQ Chicken Phyllo Flatbread.
- Try Tandoori Chicken Phyllo Turnovers for a filling dish with an Indian flare or wrap up a few Salmon Florentine Phyllo Rolls if you’re in the mood for salmon paired with spinach, a hint of garlic and a splash lemon wrapped in golden, flakey fillo dough. The salmon rolls can even be prepared ahead of time and frozen until ready to bake and serve.
- Athens Fillo Dough can also be used to make an endless number of low calorie snacks and desserts like Kale Snakopita or a sweet Cherry Phyllo Turnover.
