A wonderful, tasty Greek dish. Also known as Spinach Pie.
Filling is a mixture of Spinach, I use frozen, thawed, drained and wrung out well then chopped. I mix in Feta cheese, lemon juice, lemon zest and eggs.
Filo dough, slather with a bit of butter or oil between the layers.
I start with about 3 or 4.
Then a some of the filling. Roll it up sort of like a Burrito.
Place seam side down on a baking sheet I line it with parchment.
Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes or so.
You can also make them as little appetizers cut the Filo in strips then place a tablespoon or so in one corner then fold up in a triangle. (Way too much work as far as I am concerned.
Or make life real easy and layer the Filo in a jelly roll pan, dump all the filing on and spread it around. Top with more Filo then cut into serving sizes then bake.
Any way you do it it is wonderful.
I am also not 100% sure of the spelling, spell check does not recognize it.
