Quick & Easy Spanakopita Recipe
- 1/2 a 16 oz package of frozen Fillo Dough
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1 10 oz package frozen spinach thawed and drained
- 1 clove garlic
- 4 oz crumbled feta cheese
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 1 teaspoon greek seasoning
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt.
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add diced onion and cook until translucent. Add spinach and cook until heated through. Remove and let cool slightly.
In a bowl combine spinach mixture, garlic, cottage cheese, feta, seasoning, nutmeg and salt.
To assemble, lay two fillo sheets vertically on a baking sheet. Brush with melted butter. Take two more fillo sheets and turn them so that they are at the 11:00 and 5:00 positions. Continue to arrange fillo sheets in a clockwork fashion. Butter the tops of each new pair of fillo dough as you go. When all sheets have been used, place spinach mixture in the center and spread out into a circle. Carefully fold fillo over the edge of the spinach mixture allowing a majority of the center to be visible. Butter the edges. Bake for 25-30 or until edges are golden and center is set.
