One of my friends got me hooked on Spanakopita years ago. Her Grandma used to make us trays of it in the summertime as a Greek snack. I regret never getting the exact recipe, but I've come pretty close to matching it up perfectly. If you've never had spanakopita before, you need to get your menu out and schedule it in right away. The flaky pieces of phyllo dough melt in your mouth and the filling is creamy and savory. It's a fun recipe to make for parties, dinner, and brunches. You can get creative with this recipe and add any ingredients to the filling as you'd like. Some people prefer it with onions, tomatoes, bread crumbs or garlic cloves.
