Phyllo Triangles with Spinach and Feta
An iconic Greek dish, spanakopita, or phyllo pie with spinach and feta, is on the menu of just about every Greek and Greek-American restaurant. But for all its renown, what is typically served up is a disappointingly bland jumble of ingredients. We knew we could do better, and make the dish worth the effort.
Why This Recipe Works
We tested both fresh and frozen spinach for our phyllo triangles recipe and, much to our surprise, we liked frozen spinach as much as fresh. We liked the texture and flavor of the filling with four eggs; we crumbled the feta cheese into the eggs to ensure even distribution. But we thought the filling for our phyllo triangles recipe lacked creaminess—ricotta cheese, an ingredient in some recipes we encountered, was the remedy.
