Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)
January 27, 2008

I a huge fan of spanakopita and this recipe is definitely a good one. There are a couple of items to tweak for me though to make this a 5 star recipe. Two must have items for this recipe are fresh dill and freshly grated nutmeg (I use about 1/2 nut). The dill goes wonderfully with the spinach and green onions but the nutmeg is the key; it just adds a spark to all of the flavors and pulls everything together. My other personal preferences are melted butter for the phyllo and I actually place phyllo on bottom, middle, and top like a lasagna. I use a 9 x 13 pan and generally use at least 10 sheets for each layer. I also bake covered in foil for first 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I then remove the foil and turn heat up to about 375 for another 10 minutes or so until phyllo lightly browns. It really is a wonderful dish if you have never tried it and again, don't forget the dill and won't be sorry!
