From Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
Spanakopita Bites is my recipe of the day with the blogging groups Eat the World and Sunday Funday. For both groups we are sharing Greek recipes so I am doing a joint posting. Others are as well so you may see some overlap between the two groups.
As blogging friends you will find many of us participate in more than one group together. It’s what friends do!
It’s been mentioned that with Abba back together, it would be a great time to share Greek recipes. Abba is Swedish of course, but their music has been used in a couple of movies set in Greece (Mamma Mia I & II). I like the first movie better than the second and it is a favorite of mine.
I enjoy having spanakopita but it is a bit time consuming to do the prep of buttering the sheets, folding them and whatnot. There are versions that layer it in a pan, but I prefer something more handheld.
Using the phyllo shells to put the spinach and filling cheese into is really quite easy. And the end result is good and everyone loves them.
