Spanakopita with a Cheesy Twist


As a fan of dough and all things cheese related, I thought why not give the traditional Spanakopita a little cheese boost. Here is familiar recipe with a slight twist – a cheesy one.


  • Phyllo Dough (1 pack)
  • Olive oil (2 tbs)
  • Melted Butter (2-3 tbs)
  • Salt & Pepper (2 -3 tbs)
  • Baby Spinach (12 oz)
  • Ricotta Cheese (7 oz)
  • Crumbled Feta Cheese (6 oz)
  • Shredded Mozzarella (3-4 tbs)
  • Shredded Cheddar (3- 4 tbs)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and brown the garlic and onions. Finely chop the spinach and add to the skillet. Mix this mixture with the eggs (beat in a separate bowl), add the salt & pepper, ricotta cheese, crumbled feta cheese, shredded mozzarella, and shredded cheddar.

In a non stick pan, add a 1/4 of the phyllo dough with a 1/3 of the spinach mixture. Continue until you add the last layer of phyllo dough and brush it with the melted butter to give the top layer an extra browned and crispy crust.

Cook for 34-40 minutes on 350 degrees.
