Rolled Spanakopitas


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked spinach or defrosted frozen chopped spinach
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons snipped dill
  • 8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 package phyllo pastry
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup melted butter


  1. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil and gently cook the scallions in it until tender. Stir in the spinach and cook for 5 minutes, stirring to help evaporate excess moisture. Season to taste with salt and pepper and the nutmeg. Off the heat, stir in the snipped dill, then stir in the feta and the eggs. Let this filling cool completely.
  2. To make the spanakopitas, heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Lay 2 sheets of phyllo out and cover the rest with plastic wrap. Cut the pastry lengthways into 3 strips. Work with one strip and keep the others covered. Brush the strip with melted butter then place a heaped teaspoon of the mixture at the bottom. Roll it up, tucking in the edges. Place it seam side down on a baking sheet and lightly brush the surface with more butter. Proceed this way until all the filling is used.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
  5. Serve warm or cold.

Makes 25-30 rolls.
