I love cheese. And, I love pastry. So, every now and then, I try to experiment with eating and/or cooking things that mix cheese and pastry.
A few years ago, I discovered the wonderful mix of spinach and feta cheese. Wrapped in yummy crispy, flaky pastry. I was taken with it.
However, it's one of those things that I like, but I don't want to have too much of. Like wine and cider, I suppose. 🙂
That's why I don't eat or cook this meal a lot. I probably have it only a couple of times a year or so. To my husband's dismay, as he loves it.
Anyway, today is one of those rare moments when I decided that I wanted something out of my usual cooking repertoire. I was already craving for a bit of fillo* pastry a couple of weeks ago. That's why I bought the ingredients for this meal last week. I don't have a permanent recipe for this, as I like trying different things whenever I decide to cook this spinach and feta cheese fillo pie. I guess, I'm still looking for the perfect combination.
However, when I posted this photo on my social networks earlier, I had a couple of friends who requested for the recipe. The one I followed today was actually written on the box of the store-bought fillo pastry I bought. I only used the said recipe as a guide. I didn't follow it too closely, so I'm rewriting the whole thing as I remember what I did. So, feel free to tweak this to your own preference too. Do let me know if you give this a go!
A side note on fillo pastry: This is also known as phyllo or filo pastry. I'm all for making cooking life easy whenever possible, so I don't even attempt to make this from scratch. I find that a good store-bought one can do the job for me.
