  • Put the spinach into a large mixing bowl and set aside to cool for a bit then stir in eggs, feta and parmesan.
  • Lay a phyllo sheet on a work surface, brush it liberally with olive oil, place another sheet on top and repeat so there are 4 layers.
  • Add 4 1 tbsp piles of spinach at one end of the dough, spread equally apart.
  • Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut 4 strips
  • Fold each strip into a triangle shape, here's a video on the technique https://youtu.be/FVnbFR4SnGU?t=2m9s then place triangles in a greased baking pan.
  • Repeat 4-7 until you run out of sheets and filling.
  • Bake triangles at 350F for 30 minutes.
