Yield: 12 triangles Cooking Time: 1 Hour Difficulty: Easy Full Episode: Going Greek! (Season 4)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Heat a sauté pan to medium heat. Sauté the chopped onion with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until translucent, allow to cool.
  3. Combine spinach in a large mixing bowl with onion, eggs, mint, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and crumbled feta. Mix well.
  4. To assemble the spanakopita lay one layer of filo dough on a flat surface, brush with olive oil and top with another layer of filo. Repeat for 2 additional layers ending with olive oil.
  5. Cut the filo into 3 sections of dough length wise to make long rectangles.
  6. Place two heaping tablespoons of the spinach mixture in the lower right hand corner of the filo, fold this layer upward to make a triangle. Keep folding the filo into triangles until you reach the edge. The final result should be a medium sized triangle. Repeat this step for all of the filo until you run out of filling.
  7. Place all of the triangles on a baking tray and brush with olive oil.
  8. Cook in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
