This was delicious! The only changes I made was that I used phyllo dough instead of puffed pastry. I also made my own creamed spinach & added a bit of cheddar. I didn't think 4 eggs is quite necessary, so I decreased it to 2.5 (3 total, the half of the 3rd went to glaze the top). The phyllo dough & other changes worked great. This will definitely be a frequent meal in our house!

This was really good!!!!! I couldn't find the right size creamed spinach, so I used 2 10-ounce packages, and increased to 6 eggs, and added more of the other ingredients. Made for ZWT4.

i've only had these during thanksgiving/christmas time at my boyfriend's house since his mom makes greek food. i loved these spinach pies and was really excited to try and make them! they came out really good! i liked using creamed spinach and adding cheese to make them even cheesier! my boyfriend loved them as well! i was a little confused with the directions towards the end of the recipe so i ended up using both puff pastry sheets. One on the bottom, added the spinach filling, and then added the puff pastry on top and sealed them together! they came out really good thou! thanks for a great recipe jackie! made for zwt4

Another 5-star Recipezaar recipe that lives up to its reputation the very first time around. And that's even without proper spicing - I had to wing that as I can't find all-purpose Greek seasoning in Holland. Everyone scarfed it down. A keeper!

We love Greek food at our house and make Spanikopita several times a year, but I wanted to try this because we also enjoy creamed spinach and this sounded like a good way to combine the two dishes. I made my own creamed spinach which has onions and some parmesan so I left out the scallions and I used only three eggs total. We both thought the puff pastry was a nice change from phyllo dough for this dish and hubby wants the entire top covered next time. It was delicious and I will be making it again.

Hi Yhere JackieOhNo, what a great recipe! Made it as stated with another addition; crushed red pepper flakes & a bit of nutmeg for the creamed spinach. The next time that we make it I think I'll try it by using my own creamed spinach otherwise it was just wonderful. Thanks for posting such a great recipe, Manami :)
