Recipe Ingredients for Spinach Pie Greek Spanakopita

18 sprays cooking spray
2 tsp olive oil
30 oz chopped frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed to remove excess water
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
8 oz fat-free egg substitute
6 oz fat free feta cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 pound phyllo dough, frozen, thawed according to package directions
8 oz chicken breast, cooked and diced

Recipe Directions for Spinach Pie Greek Spanakopita

  1. Coat a 9 X 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add spinach and onion and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 5 to 7 minutes; stir in parsley and nutmeg. Remove from heat and transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add egg substitute, cheeses and salt and pepper; mix well.

  3. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo in and up the sides of prepared pan; coat surface lightly with cooking spray. Top with 7 more sheets of phyllo, coating each layer with cooking spray. Spread spinach mixture over dough and top with 8 more sheets of dough, coating each layer with cooking spray. Roll the overhanging sides of dough into the edges of pan, forming a border.

  4. Using a sharp knife, cut into 12 squares, almost through to the bottom, but not quite or the filling will leak. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  5. Preheat oven to 375F. Bake until crisp and golden, about 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting squares all the way through to the bottom. Yields 1 square per serving.
