Default Peep's Spinach Pies

This is my recipe and I never measure, but tonight I took my time and tried to get measurements but you can adjust to your taste.

Enjoy and let me know how you like them.

Peep's Spinach Pies

2 (10 oz) boxes or 1 (20 oz bag) Frozen spinach - thawed and squeezed dry
1 (8 oz) pkg. feta cheese - crumbled
1 Stick of butter
1 Medium Onion- chopped fine
1/2 cup Grated Romano cheese -or to taste
1/2 cup Grated parmesan cheese - or to taste
Lemon juice - to taste
Hot sauce - to taste
additional 1 stick of Butter - for brushing
1/2 of a 1 lb box of frozen Phyllo leaves (1 bag = 1/2 lb) - thawed according to box

Thaw and squeeze all the water out of the spinach. Place 1 stick of butter in a large skillet and add the onion. Just soften the onions no color. Add the feta cheese and about 1/4 lb. each of the Romano and parmesan cheeses to the pan and stir over medium heat to melt. Add enough lemon juice to give it a nice tang. Add hot sauce to taste. Slowly add the spinach to pan and combine thoroughly. Set aside to cool.

Cut Phyllo leaves in half across the width. Stack leaves and place between a "sandwich" of waxed paper. Then place the waxed paper sandwiched leaves in a sandwich of a damp towel and cover to prevent drying out. Remove leaves as needed and recover unused stack.

Melt additional 1 stick of butter and use to brush on each Phyllo leaf (if you don't do this the leaves become very brittle and hard to work with) before placing the filling on. Roll them in any shape you would like. I do triangles or pillows, be sure to close edges or filling will ooze out while browning. Repeat for each Phyllo leaf. Brush tops with a small amount of butter.

Bake in a preheated 450˚ oven for about 3 - 4 minutes or until browned then turn over and repeat. You may place under broiler to brown if you prefer.

You may freeze. To heat frozen pies: place frozen pies on baking sheet and follow the same directions as above; except add a little extra time.

Makes approx. 46

Not sure when to freeze...before or after baking. How do they turn out after being frozen? are they still flaky and crispy?

freeze uncooked. i assemble them and place on a tray, place tray in freezer till frozen solid then put them in a zip bag. to cook just put them FROZEN (do not thaw or they will get soggy) on a tray and bake till golden on one side then flip and repeat. i just put them under the broiler but you need to make sure you don't BBQ them!! yes they will come out crispy so long as they go in frozen.

I am not a big fan of cooked spinach but they do look great. The cheesy sauce would do it for me. You made over 40 and they are all gone?

Thank you MM.

Well no. DD and I made 1/2 batch so far today and 1/2 of them are gone. I gave my thumb a nice nick while chopping the onions (carpal tunnel numbness and chopping NOT a good thing). Once I got that under control I finished the filling and we folded 1/2 batch before it started hurting so I gave up for now. I may use some of the filling to stuff a couple chicken breasts.

They are Great looking peep!

Thanks for the method on how to fill them.

Now I need Tina to make them....hahahahaha ...
Now I'm also wishing for those Pasties...the meat and potato and parsnips filled pies.
Some Church Groups make them around this time...I'll have to look out for them.

Thanks for adding the photos of the folding process, Peep! I thought that was how to do it, but wasn't sure.

Looks as if you used 2 pieces of phyllo there? And butter just the side where you put the filling on, right?

Butter first sheet, top with second sheet and butter that one also. Then filling and fold. Sometimes I cut them wider and butter one side and fold over buttered side then butter top.
