"Recipes are meant to be shared"

It is my intention to add a couple of recipes here every week. Although between working and playing with my daily blog 'Thibeault's Table', I'm not always successful.


Sharon's Spanikopita
These are very easy to make, don't be fussed about the Phyllo just keep a tea towel over it
while you are working. I promise you these will be a huge hit, with a bit of "Wow"

16 oz Phyllo Dough, thawed in the fridge for 24 hours
10 oz Frozen Spinach, thawed and drained of all liquid
3/4 lb Feta Cheese, 375 Grams
1/2 lb Cottage Cheese, pressed and drained about 1 cup
1/4 lb Cream Cheese, softened
3 Eggs
1/4 cup Fresh Dill, Chopped Fine
3/4 cup Butter, melted

In large bowl combine all ingredients except Phyllo and butter. Working with one sheet
of Phyllo at a time, brush with melted butter and cut in 5 strips lengthwise. Place 1
spoonful of mixture at the bottom of each strip about 1 inch from the bottom, fold the
bottom piece up over the filling and then fold up in a triangle shape. Fold like you fold a
flag, to the left, up , to the right ,up etc. Brush tops with more melted butter. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm NOTE: To freeze, place the uncooked Spanikopita on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer. Once frozen place in bags or containers. When ready to serve place frozen Spanikopita on a cookie sheet and bake.
