Savory Spanakopita

May 20, 2011

In celebration of the International Greek Festival, I felt inspired to post one of Greece’s iconic snacks.  Spanakopita or spinach and feta pie is a Greek savory pastry with spinach, feta cheese, onions, and eggs. The filling is wrapped or layered in phyllo, a thin and flaky dough often used in Greek and Middle Eastern cooking.  These delightful pastries are served in individual triangles or in large rectangles.  Although admittedly untraditional, I like to add golden raisins for a bit of sweetness.



¼ cup Shallots, minced

2 tablespoons Garlic

4 tablespoons Butter

3 tablespoons Flour

½ cup White wine

½ cup Heavy whipping Cream

2 package Frozen Spinach, thawed, squeeze excess water

8 ounces Feta Cheese

3 Eggs

Salt & Pepper to taste

3 pkgs. Phyllo (There are 2 pkgs. a box)

1 pound Butter
