Savoury triangles

Cooking is not one of my favourite passtimes and I am always thrilled when I find a recipe that is easy and everyone enjoys. This is one of those!
Savoury Triangles
1/2 bunch spring onions sliced
30ml butter
30 ml flour
1/2 cup milk
125 gm cooked spinach,drained
salt and pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese grated
1 egg lightly beaten
1 X 500g pkt phyllo pastry
I must admit I don't stick to the recipe exactly. You can use different types of cheese and other fillings like chicken mushrooms and assorted veg.
Saute` spring onions in butter until wilted.
Add flour and cook over medium heat for 3-4 mins, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.
Add rest of ingredients and leave to cool

To make triangles, open pastry and cut into strips, about 5 per sheet. Brush with a little melted butter and top with a second strip of pastry.
Place a teaspoon full of filling on the corner of the pastry strip.

Fold into triangles, making sure the sides are straight and the corners sharp.

Brush with butter and bake at 200C (400F) for 15-20 min. until puffy and golden!

These are a family favourite and I often get an sms from my boys, when they are coming home for the weekend to "please make triangles!"
