Nikko-chan:
I had spanikopita at a fair yesterday... oh my lord it was wonderful. I want to recreate that yumminess at home. I have looked online, but I wanted to ask all of you: What is the best recipe you have for spanikopita?

Also: Can it be frozen?

Nikko-chan:
I forgot to mention... I found a recipe. I used it. It tasted like spinachy death. >.<

Oh, can you post it, or a link to it? I hit "notify" on your thread when you posted hoping other people would post recipes. Alas, I still have no idea how to make it, and the ones I've found online have looked way beyond my ability.

NyaChan:
I don't have one particular recipe I use.  I usually just mesh a couple up together and they have a bunch online.  The basics for me are phyllo, spinach, onion, garlic, olive oil, and feta + some seasoning like salt, pepper, nutmeg. You can add in dill, parsley, green onion, and egg for binding as well.

And yes, you can freeze it.

jpcher:
I've been keeping an eye on this thread, too.

It seems like Spanikopita is not all that easy to make. Plus I do have a fear of filo because of it's purported tendency to dry out if not used correctly. :(


My solution to spanikopita is the frozen bite-sized appetizers which I serve often at parties and is well received (nary a leftover).


Nikko-chan -- Please post the recipe that you used. Maybe someone can alter it (ala NyaChan) so that it's not so "spinachy death."
