Ingredients

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped

  • 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

  • 3 extra large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 7 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 40 sheets frozen phyllo pastry, thawed in refrigerator

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • ½ cup plain bread crumbs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over a medium heat. Stir in green onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Meanwhile in a large bowl, combine spinach, dill, eggs, feta, salt and pepper. Add reserved green onions, and mix well.

  4. Unfold 1 sheet of the phyllo pastry, brush with melted butter, and sprinkle lightly with breadcrumbs. Lay another sheet directly on top of the first sheet; repeat butter and breadcrumb steps. Continue to do this until you have 10 layers.

  5. Spoon 3/4 cup of spinach mixture (in a sausage-like shape) along longer edge of the top sheet. Roll it up, place on baking sheet, and brush lightly with butter. Score off 1-inch rounds by marking with a knife for easier cutting later. Repeat process with the remaining pastry sheets. You will have 4 rolls total when finished.

  6. Bake in a preheated oven for 12 minutes or until edges are lightly brown. Cut into individual servings where you have marked. Serve immediately.
