serves 8-10
30 minutes
1 hour 30 minutes

1/2 cup olive oil
5 pounds spinach
1 teaspoon dill
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons nutmeg
3 pounds feta cheese crumbled
2 pounds grated cheese
1 teaspoon ground pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 package phyllo dough for pies
2/3 cup milk
3 eggs
2 cups oatmeal
sesame seeds for garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and thaw completely the phyllo dough.
2. Boil the spinach for 5′-6′.
3. In a pan put the olive oil and sauté the spinach until it softens.
4. Tear up the spinach with your hands and transfer to a bowl. Add the dill, onion powder, garlic powder, nutmeg, feta cheese, cheese, pepper, salt, milk, eggs, and the oatmeal. Stir everything.
5. Oil the bottom and sides of a round baking tray -approx. 35cm diameter.
Unroll the phyllo dough from the plastic sleeve and place one sheet of phyllo on a working surface and brush with olive oil. Spread some of the filling, making a lane on the edge of the larger side of the phyllo sheet and roll into a ‘sausage’. Place the roll on the baking tray, starting from the outer side of the tray . Repeat with the rest of the dough, placing the rolls (touching each other) in the baking tray, forming a ‘snail’, that leads to the centre of the pan.
6. Brash the surface of the pie with some milk and a beaten egg and bake for an hour, until golden and crispy.
