Here's a tasty and unique appetizer from Jennifer Powell. The spinach-feta cheese bundles were enjoyed by all at her recent wine-tasting party, where she launched her new career as a Wine Consultant for Wine Shop at Home.

Ingredients:
1 pkg Won Ton wrappers
2 T chopped onion
4 oz melted butter, divided
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 T chopped mushrooms
Dash ground cayenne and salt to taste
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 oz feta cheese, crumbled

Sauté onions in 1 tablespoon melted butter. Add the spinach, mushrooms, cayenne pepper, and salt. Remove from heat. Add cream cheese and feta cheese. Place the wraps flat on a clean, dry cutting board. Place a heaping half-teaspoon of spinach and cheese mixture on square. Fold up edges around spinach mixture and pinch to make a purse-like bundle. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Before baking, drizzle melted butter over purses. Bake at 400° (F) for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Optional: Once out of the oven, tie a chive around the neck of the purse. NOTE: Can be prepared then refrigerated for future baking. Makes 32.
