Equipment

  • Silicone brush

Ingredients

  • 1 box phyllo pastry
  • 16 ounces spinach
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter melted

Instructions

To make the filling

  • Steam the spinach in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it is wilted. About 8 minutes. Set the spinach aside to drain and cool.
  • When the spinach is cool enough to handle, squeeze the excess water from it and roughly chop it.
  • Mix the spinach with the eggs, feta cheese, green onion, dill, minced garlic and salt and pepper.

To assemble the rolls:

  • Preheat your oven to 350-F.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet or in the microwave. Get your silicone brush ready.
  • Lay one pastry sheet out in front of you on a clean work surface. Brush it lightly with butter, covering the whole sheet. Top the buttered phyllo sheet with another sheet of phyllo, and brush it, too. Do this with 4 sheets of phyllo - do not butter the top of the final sheet.
  • Cut the sheets in half lengthwise. Working with one half at a time, put 1/2 a cup of the spinach mixture onto the phyllo sheet and roll it up like a burrito, tucking in the ends as you go.
  • Repeat with the remaining sheets of phyllo and remaining filling.
  • Brush the tops of the rolls with more melted butter, and lay them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake them in the oven at 350-F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Wrap the rolls tightly but don't squish them. They won't expand or shrink in the oven, so wrap them firmly.
  • Keep unused sheets of phyllo covered with a piece of plastic wrap to keep them from drying out.
  • Salted butter adds flavor to these rolls, but you can also use unsalted butter.
  • The rolls can be made up to a day ahead of time. Keep them tightly wrapped and in the fridge until ready to bake them.
