Blogging Marathon# 60: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Take-Away dishes from Metropulos, Santa Barbara
Dish: Spanakopita Triangles (with frozen spinach and no egg)
Filo sheets are a little difficult to work with. They are temperamental and if not treated properly they tend to tear apart. So make sure to keep them covered with a damp kitchen towel or paper towels to avoid that. My filo sheets came out of the box with rips, but once I buttered, layered and folded them, they looked just fine. So don’t worry if your sheets start ripping, just keep going and all will be well in the end, you just have to trust me on this 🙂
The spinach and feta cheese filling was so good that I couldn’t stop
eating tasting it right from the pan. Fresh dill adds a nice flavor to the filling.
These are best when eaten hot or warm. Unbaked spanakopitas can be frozen for up to 2 months (place them in a single layer on a plate or baking sheet, freeze until solid. Then transfer into a ziploc bag and store in the freezer). Bake frozen ones a little longer.
