This reminds me of Greek Spanikopia. Its a wonderful and fairly easy recipe to prepare. There's never enough to go around!
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach, chopped, well drained
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dill
- 1⁄4 lb feta cheese, crumbled
- 4 ounces cottage cheese
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup cream (half and half)
- 1 deep dish pie shell (9-inch)
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Chop onion and saute in oil 5 minutes.
- Add frozen spinach in the 3 tablespoons oil and continue cooking, stirring often until all liquid is gone.
- Transfer to a bowl and add remaining ingredients.
- Pour mixture into unbaked pie crust and bake degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean.
Super easy to make and so delicious!
I made my own whole wheat crust from another recipe on Food.com.
I used 6 oz of feta. It doesn't need nearly that much oil (i only eyeballed enough for sauteeing) and added two crushed garlic cloves in with the onions and spinach (i use garlic in everything!). I did use light cottage cheese, regular half and half, but lowered the half and half proportion down to a half cup and added a half cup (plus a little extra) of non-fat greek yogurt. I also used more dill than it called for...not sure exactly how much but probably about 1/4-1/2 tablespoon...but then again, I LOVE DILL! I also added pepper
Plan on making this again very soon!
Yummy! I cut the salt to 1/2 tsp and the oil to 1 Tbsp. Also used fat free half-and-half, light cottage cheese, and goat's milk feta. This was wonderful though it was a little watery after baking (didn't affect the taste though and I just drained off the liquid and it wasn't a problem any more.) Thanks for the recipe!
It would help if you used real measurements like cups and tsp and tbs instead of ounces of this and that. Some of us don't have or use scales to measure cooking ingredients. How many cups or fractions of is 4 oz cottage cheese or 1/4 lb of feta cheese??? How am I supposed to make it not knowing how much of each to add?
