Spanakopita Triangles

Click pic for more detail
I made these last weekend for a Greek inspired menu for a dinner party (along with Chicken Kabobs, Oregano & Lemon Potatoes, and Cucumber Salad). These are amazing...I could eat them all night!  I am posting about this recipe today as I am making these for an appetizer for Christmas Eve dinner at the in-laws house.  It's a pretty simple dish to make, can be reheated easily and is quite impressive. A little dollop of Tzatziki goes a long way with these!

I followed this Fantastic Recipe from David Lebovitz because he has the best pictures, great step by step instructions and some cute anecdotes.

Here is what you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and minced
  • 12 ounces (325g) fresh spinach, well-washed and towel dried
  • salt and freshly-ground pepper
  • 8-10 ounces (230-250g) feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely-chopped flat leaf parsley
  • pinch of freshly-grated nutmeg
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • lemon juice
  • 16 sheets filo dough (about 12 ounces, 350g), thawed, if frozen
  • Melted butter (2-3 ounces, 60-90g)
