My mom finally made an appearance in a video! Watch her make our family’s recipe for Spanakopita. Such a staple in our family for special occasions! Mmm so delicious.
3 – 10 oz boxes frozen spinach
1.5 lbs feta
8 oz goat cheese
1 cup of butter
1 box of phyllo dough
1. Mix together the spinach, feta, goat cheese and eggs.
2. Melt the butter. To start the layering process, brush some butter on the bottom of a 9×13 tray. Place a single layer of phyllo. Butter every layer. Make sure you have a good brush so you don’t have to worry about any hairs coming out when you’re brushing the butter. Use 8 layers of phyllo, then add 1/3 of the spinach mixture. Spread with a spoon, or your hands, like mom!
3. Add 5 more layers of phyllo and another 1/3 of the mixture. Don’t forget to brush butter between every layer. Add another 5 layers and use the rest of the spinach. Top with however many more pieces of phyllo you have left, about 5-8. Brush the top with butter. Cut in squares. Much easier to cut before you cook it. Then place in a 375 degree F oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is a beautiful golden brown.
Let mom, grandma and I know if you make it!
