No matter what time of year, this Spanakopita recipe is always a huge hit.
I Love taking it to a family gathering or "bring a dish" party. I can even make it ahead and freeze it.
I start by opening a bottle of my favorite wine and consume while cooking.
This Recipe made 16 triangles
1 lb. Spinach (baby – Bagged fine)
Leek – chopped Large Onion – chopped
1 bunch Green onion – Chopped
2-3 cloves of Garlic – Chopped
2 Cups Crumbled Feta
1 tsp. Salt½ tsp. black pepper
1 lb. Fillo Dough
1 cup salted butter, melted
1) Remove fillo from Freezer and put it in the refrigerator overnight to thaw. As you prepare the filling, remove fillo from the fridge and leave on the counter
4) Take one sheet and brush with melted butter, and then place another sheet on top of the buttered side and brush with butter again. Repeat until you have four layers of fillo.
I like to chop all my vegetables before I start. They tend to cook faster than I can
