Why I Love This Recipe

I got this recipe from my former dance teacher who was Greek. This is the best I could remember, she never measured anything :)

You can make the triangles by cutting a package of phyllo in half. Use two strips at a time. With a pastry brush, brush butter over entire strip. Add Spinach mix in the corner and fold over into a triangle. Every time you fold, brush with butter. Enjoy it's my favorite.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 c. diced onion
1 tbsp of butter (for saute)
Butter for Phyllo
Package of Frozen Spinach (thaw and rinse)
8oz of Feta Cheese
3/4 c. of Cottage Cheese
Two Eggs
1 Tbsp Dried Parsley
Salt Pepper Garlic to taste
1 Package of Phyllo Dough (only use one of the packages, usually two come in a box)


Directions

In a frying pan, Saute Onion and butter until onions are almost clear.


In a large bowl, combine spinach (make sure water is drained out completely, squeeze water out), cheese, eggs, Parsley, onion, and spices.


Mix with hands or with wooden spoon.


Prepare Phyllo:


In a cake pan, Overlap phyllo so it goes over the sides of the pan both long ways and short.


Use 4 sheets at a time.


Melt butter and with a pastry brush brush over phyllo on each layer.


Leave 5 phyllo sheets for top.


Fill pan with mixture, fold over sides and cover with remaining phyllo.


Cover top with melted butter.


Not too much though.


Bake in 350 until phyllo is golden brown.
