Spanakopita Bites

4 Jun

These are 100% awesome and very much worth the time to make!

16 oz. frozen spinach, thawed and strained of excess liquid
feta cheese (as much as you want, I use one package
1 egg
chopped garlic
3/4 of a large onion, minced
oregano, salt and pepper

In a pan heat up a little oil and sautee the minced onion and chopped garlic.

Add the translucent onion mix to a bowl.  Add in the spinach, cheese and spices and the egg.  Mix well.

Roll out a roll of phyllo dough, and place a damp paper towel over it to keep it from drying out.

Cut the layers of dough into 3 vertical strips.

Take one layer, brush with olive oil, and place a teaspoon of spinach filling on it like this:

Then fold like this:


Until you get something that looks like this:

I like to then lay these on a cutting board lined with parchment paper and then freeze them overnight.

After that I place them in a big bag and keep them frozen until I want to use them.

Then I’ll just pop a few out onto a baking sheet and bake at 300 for 30-or-so minutes, or until whenever they are browned.

They go great with tzatziki sauce!
