Spanakopita - Greek Spinach Pie
  • 10oz. baby spinach
  • 12 oz. feta cheese
  • 8 oz. ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 1 16-oz box fillo dough
  • 1½ cups melted butter
  1. Chop spinach finely.
  2. Mix together spinach, cheeses, milk, and eggs.
  3. Drizzle 1 spoonful of butter on a sheet of fillo. Top with a second sheet, drizzle, and top with a third sheet.
  4. Add about ½ cup of spinach mixture to the end of the dough sheets and roll gently, tucking in the sides to create pies.
  5. Seal with butter, add to a pan, and brush the top with butter.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes until golden brown.
Instead of using ricotta cheese and milk, you could substitute small curd cottage cheese.
