spankopita, Greek spinach phyllo pie

There’s a few leftover boxes of phyllo in the freezer that I need to address; this took care of only one roll. Since there’s so many variations in the spanikopita recipes that I found, I just cribbed together the best bits of all the ones I saw, and added a few things that I thought would be good. Measurements are approximate, but this has:

  • just under 3# spinach (3 10oz boxes)
  • 2 small onions + 1 large shallot
  • ~½ c. parmesan
  • ~½ # feta*
  • 2 T. Rosenburg I found in the freezer
  • juice of one lemon
  • a splash of vermouth
  • 1/2 c. toasted pine nuts
  • 4 eggs
  • salt & pepper

If I’d had some parsely or dill on hand, that would have gone in, too. There’s about ten sheets layered on the bottom, then the filling, then five more sheets, more filling, and about ten sheets on top. In the background, you can see there’s a round pie plate where I laid out the extra phyllo from the roll, plopped in the leftover filling, and just folded it in on itself. That’s the one I’ve been snacking on, and it’s awesome.

*there would have been more but The Cheese Nibbler (um, me…) got to it
