Leek & feta cheese pie

Course: Pies
Cuisine: Greek

Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 4 large leeks
  • 1 small bunch of spring onions
  • 100 gr feta cheese crumbled
  • 100 gr kefalograviera grated substitute with any yellow, gruyere style cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • olive oil
  • 1 pack of fillo pastry – there are normally 10-12 sheets. Use 8 for your pie and 4 for the kourkoubinia.
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Finely chop the leeks, onions and spring onions and sautee with a bit of olive oil until translucent.
  • Transfer them in a large bowl and mix in the crumble feta cheese, kefalograviera or gruyère and eggs. Mix well and season. If your feta is too salty you might want to omit the salt (I normally do).
  • Oil your tray and place four fillo pastry sheets on the bottom. I have a 26x36 cm baking tray and normally fold my fillo sheets so that gives me 8 layers on the bottom and another 8 on top.
  • Spread evenly the leek mix and cover with another 4 folded and oiled pastry sheets.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes on a preheated oven at 180 oC.
