Spinach Pie

This streamlined version of classic Greek spanakopita calls for frozen chopped spinach and frozen filo dough, so active prep is at a minimum. You begin by making the filling, sautéeing onion in butter, then adding eggs, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and seasonings. Add the squeezed, defrosted spinach and crumbled feta. Then layer thin sheets of filo dough in a baking dish, remembering to brush each layer with melted butter. The filling goes in a single layer in the middle, under more layers of buttery filo. Bake, cool slightly, and cut into squares or triangles.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt the 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the onions and a large pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. 2Add the eggs, Parmesan, bread crumbs, nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to the bowl with the onions and whisk to combine.
  3. 3Add the defrosted spinach to a colander and press out as much liquid as possible. Transfer the spinach to the bowl with the onion mixture, add the feta, and gently mix with your hands to combine.
  4. 4Butter a 9-inch pie dish. Line the pie dish with filo, brushing each sheet with melted butter. The ends should hang over the sides.
  5. 5Spoon the spinach mixture into the middle of the filo. Fold the edges up and over the top to seal in the filling. Brush or drizzle the top with melted butter.
  6. 6Bake until golden brown and the filling is set, about 1 hour. Let cool to room temperature before serving.
