Ingredients

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach thawed and squeezed dry
  • 4 ounces feta cheese crumbled
  • 4 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 4 ounces smoked mozzarella cut into ¼” cubes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 shallot minced, about 1/4 cup
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound phyllo dough thawed
  • 1/2 cup butter melted and cooled (1 stick)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  • In a large bowl, combine spinach, feta, ricotta, mozzarella, parsley, shallots, eggs, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir until well combined.
  • Spread one sheet phyllo dough on a clean work surface; brush with melted butter. Place another sheet of phyllo on top of the first and brush it with butter. Place a third sheet of phyllo on top of the stack and brush it with butter, too.
  • Using a chef’s knife or kitchen scissors, carefully cut the phyllo in to thirds. Place 1 tablespoon of the filling on the end of each strip of phyllo.
  • Starting with the end of the dough strip with the filling, fold one corner of the phyllo over the filling to form a triangle. Continue folding the dough, keeping it in a triangular shape (like folding a flag).
  • Place on prepared baking sheet and brush with melted butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough and filling.
  • Bake until brown and crisp, about 20 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes (filling will be very hot). Serve warm.
