Baked Feta Bites

If you love the TikTok-famous baked feta pasta and the delightful sophistication of our cranberry brie bites, then brace yourself: These little appetizers are the culinary revelation that combines the best of both worlds.


  • All-purpose flour, for surface
  • 1 (17.3-oz.) package puff pastry, thawed if frozen
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp. fig jam, apricot jam, or peach jam
  • 2 tbsp. sliced shallots
  • 1 (10-oz.) jar roasted red peppers, cut into 24 (2" x 1/2") pieces
  • 8 oz. feta, cut into 24 (1" by 1/2") cubes
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp. chili oil


  1. Step 1Preheat oven to 425°. On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry sheets to smooth out creases. Cut into 24 squares with a chef’s knife.
  2. Step 2Grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Gently press each square into prepared cups, ensuring pastry slightly protrudes out of the cup—this will create a cup-like shape after baking.
  3. Step 3Fill each square with jam, shallots, red peppers, a cube of feta, and a sprinkle of thyme; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Step 4Bake feta bites until pastry is cooked through, puffed, and browned, around 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes.
  5. Step 5Transfer bites to a platter. Top with more thyme, lemon zest, and a drizzle of chili oil.
