Description

Spanakopita, otherwise known as Greek spinach pie, is a traditional Greek savory pastry. Traditionally spanakopita is made with thin flaky sheets of phyllo dough and a spinach filling featuring feta cheese, onions, parsley, and egg. Spanakopita can be made either as a savory pastry sachet or as a pie. This recipe for spanakopita follows the latter preparation with a phyllo crust sandwiching the spinach filling on the top and bottom.
