Oh. :geek:

Didn't know you didn't know. :ugeek:

They're often served on the same platter as an assortment. Somehow I can't say one without saying the other :D


*MY* spanakopita comes with a Greek salad. PERFECT lunch! :D

I have to admit - I'm very tempted to try to make them in the prepared filo cups - like these:

(tho I might improvise on the filling - I don't know about putting eggs in :? )

It might.

Asking about "traditional spanakopita" is like asking about "traditional meatloaf"

Traditional is whatever YOUR Yiayia/Grandma did!

I don't think of it as very "eggy" but but some authentic versions do have eggs as a binder (not so much that it seems like you're eating Quiche, tho! - and the one I posted looked a bit quiche-ey).

This lady's blog is one I love (she's Cypriot, and has excellent English : )
She's traditional, but still creative.
https://www.kopiaste.org/?s=spanakopita

Note, she has some with eggs. She also has "nistisimi" which means Lenten/Vegan. It is VERY common to see this made as a Lenten food without cheese or eggs! There are lots of varieties that are Lenten.

Also, this lady is a famous Greek-American chef. She diverges from tradtion sometimes, but she's a very good go-to source:

Note - her version has no eggs.

AS for the little cups - lets just make 100 and split them :D
