Easiest Greek Cheese Pie
Method

Our member Maria Stamatopoulou sent in this recipe! Thank you!

  • Brush a baking pan with olive oil.
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Brush 2 sheets of phyllo dough with the melted butter and spread them in the pan, one at a time.
  • Place half of the pack of phyllo dough next to you. Brush each phyllo with butter, crumple and place in the pan. Repeat process until all of the sheets of phyllo (half the pack) are done.
  • Spread the grated cheeses and cover with the remaining half of the package of phyllo dough in the same way as before. Brush with butter, crumple and add to pan. Adding the sheets of phyllo, crumpled in this way, makes it easier for the air to circulate in the pie while it is baking and makes it puffier.
  • Score gently with a sharp knife.
  • Use a hand whisk to whisk the eggs, baking and pepper. Pour over the pie carefully, making sure it gets in between the scored sheets of phyllo.
  • Pour the milk over the pie.
  • Shake the pan gently to make sure the mixture goes everywhere.
  • Set aside for 10 minutes until it is absorbed.
  • Cover pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, until cooked through and golden brown.
