Ingredients 

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, 10 by 10 inch
  • dusting of flour
  • cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 100 grams feta , any you like
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup frozen spinach , thawed and the water is squeezed out

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Thaw your puff pastry as per the package instructions and dust your board, counter, or to save time you can do this straight onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper too.
  • I place my puff pastry on top and I fold all the edges about a quarter inch towards the middle. I take a fork and dip it in flour and a crimp the edges all around. In a separate bowl whisk one egg with a little bit of water and brush it all around the border.
  • To make the filling add the mozzarella, egg, feta, and spinach into a separate bowl and mix it together. Add the filling to the middle of your pastry and spread it in the middle within the square with a spoon.
  • Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
  • Optionally, broil the top for about a minute but watch it the whole time. Enjoy!

Notes

If you want to leave out the egg you will have to use a creamy or type of cheese like a ricotta or simply mix feta with a cream cheese you like.
I have not tried it but I am confident that it will work without the egg as well. To replace the egg wash you can simply brush the ends with some avocado oil or butter.
Feel free to use any feta you like.
If you use fresh spinach make sure you cook it a little bit in a pan and squeeze out the water. If you use frozen spinach make sure you thaw it and squeeze out the water in a cheese cloth.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
