Puff pastry triangles are stuffed with a goat cheese and red bell pepper filling and baked in the electric skillet. With only a few ingredients, you can have this simple but delicious appetizer on the table in no time.
Ingredients & Tools
- Olive oil
- Red bell pepper
- Puff pastry – You can find puff pastry in the frozen section. It comes in a box of sheets.
- Goat cheese
- Egg – This is optional. When brushed on the pastry, it gives it a nice golden color and shine.
You will need a small baking rack (about 6″ to 9″ wide if using a 12″ skillet) and a baking dish that fits in your electric skillet.
Make sure to let the triangles cool for a few minutes after baking as they will be quite hot inside. Then, arrange them on a nice serving dish/platter, add a few dip options and serve.
This savory, electric skillet appetizer goes well with dips that are more so on the sweet side like sweet and sour, sweet chili sauce or even cranberry sauce.
Store leftover triangles in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 to 5 days. They can be reheated in the electric frying pan, microwave or oven. If you reheat them in the microwave they will be soft, whereas the oven/pan will make them nice and crispy again! You can also freeze them for a couple of weeks.
