Basil Cheese Triangles

Crumple feta cheese into a small bowl. Stir in eggs, basil, roasted pepper.

Cut phyllo sheets lengthwise into 2 inch strips. Cover with a damp towel to keep from drying out. Place 1 t. of filling on end of 1 strip. Fold strip over cheese mixture, end over end into triangular shape. Place on cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter.

Bake at 400 degrees F. for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
