  • Repeat the same process until all of the phyllo sheets and filling are done.
  • When spreading the last sheet of phyllo, drizzle with some olive oil and roll the phyllo and filling to make a roll, starting from the wider side.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut into 8 equal sized rolls.
  • Carefully place the rolls, vertically, over the phyllo in the tart pan.
  • Turn the edges of the overhanging phyllo inward, to create a nest.
  • Drizzle the whole pie with any remaining olive oil.

For the mixture

  • In a bowl, add the milk, eggs, salt, pepper, some ground nutmeg and the baking powder. Whisk thoroughly.
