Are you sure it was bleu cheese and not feta cheese?? I have this one:
Cheese Filled Triangles
3/4 pound feta cheese, grated
2 - 10 frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 box Filo dough
Mix cheese and spinach. Take 3 sheets of filo, spray with buttered flavored Pam, or melt butter and brush with butter. Cut fill into 8 strips going lengthwise.
Put 1/2 tsp. of spinach mixture in lower corner and then fold one corner up and so on, How one would fold a flag. Instructions on folding on filo box.
Then spray or brush with butter. Place on cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen, place in zip lock bag.
When ready to cook, place on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350°F.
These are good warm or at room temp.
Spanokopita (Spinach Appetizers)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 bunch chopped scallions, white and green parts
2 (10-ounce) boxes frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
3 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten
7 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
40 sheets (1 box) frozen phyllo dough,
defrosted overnight in the refrigerator
1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Heat the olive oil in a saute pan and add the scallions. Cook for 5 minutes or until soft.
Meanwhile, squeeze most of the water out of the spinach and place it in a bowl.
Add the scallions, dill, eggs, feta, salt, and pepper and mix together.
Keep the phyllo dough sheets covered with a damp kitchen towel.
Unfold 1 sheet of the phyllo dough. Brush the sheet with melted butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
Repeat the process by laying a second sheet of phyllo dough over the first sheet, brush it with melted butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs until all 10 sheets have been used.
Spoon 3/4 cup of the spinach mixture into a sausage shape along one edge of the phyllo dough. Roll it up. Brush the top with butter and score the roll into 1-inch rounds. Place it on an oiled baking sheet. Repeat until all the pastry and filling have been used.
Place in the oven and bake for 12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Serve warm.
I have many au gratin potato and ham recipes -
from Disney World:
3 lbs. of shredded potatoes (Hash Browns)
1/4 lb. of sliced onions
1/2 cup of Nacho cheese sauce
pinch of salt and pepper
1/4 lb. of diced ham
pinch of garlic and onion powder
2 Tbsp. Butter
3 oz. shredded cheese (your favorite)
Sauté onions and ham in butter. Add dry ingredients, then mix in potatoes, and let cook until a nice golden brown. In a separate container heat the Nacho cheese sauce (microwave). After potatoes are ready, mix together and place in an oven safe container. Top with the shredded cheese. Bake in oven for 15 minutes at 325 degrees.
good and old fashioned way:
POTATOES AU GRATIN AND HAM
2 cups cooked ham, cubed
3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and sliced thin (approximately 9 med. potatoes)
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons flour
12 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease baking dish.
Layer 1/3 sliced potatoes, 1/3 chopped ham, 1/3 onions in the pan. Repeat layers, ending with sliced potatoes on top.
In a sauce pan over medium heat, warm milk (do not boil). In a separate sauce pan melt butter and slowly stir in flour. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add warmed milk to the butter and flour mixture and continue to cook for 4 to 5 minutes while continuing to stir until thickened.
Remove from heat, stir in shredded cheese, mustard, paprika, and black pepper. (Return to low heat if cheese does not melt.) Then, pour cheese sauce over layered potatoes.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until potatoes are soft and top layer is golden brown.
or using a box mix:
