  • 1 package of Phyllo Dough (defrosted according to package)
  • 1 package of Frozen Spinach (defrosted)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves of Garlic (minced)
  • 1 1/2 cups Feta Cheese
  • Dried or Fresh Dill
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 stick of Melted Butter (cooled)

  3. Add spinach and stir until just warm.
  4. Empty the spinach and onion mixture into a large bowl.
  5. Add the cheese, juice of half a lemon, dill, salt, and pepper and mix.
