GREEK RECIPES : CHEESE PIES / TYROPITA

GREEK RECIPES : CHEESE PIES / TYROPITA

Greek Recipes Ingredients:

* 1/2 kilo / 1 pound of F├ęta cheese, either whole or in pieces
* Four tablespoons butter or margarine
* 6 eggs (or 3 eggs)
* 1/2 cup chopped parsley
* Pastry called Filo composed of very thin pastry sheets (can be found at specialist delis in North America or Frozen in Europe
* 3 cups of white bechamel sauce (optional)
* Salt, pepper, nutmeg

GREEK RECIPES INSTRUCTIONS
This dish can be done in triangle sized chunks. After you butter the fillo and you put the filling in it, fold it in single triangles and place them on the oven dish.
Crush the Feta to a paste, add the bechamel sauce, and the eggs, while stiring well. Add the salt, pepper and nutmeg. Line the baking pan with oil, and then place about 6-10 sheets of filo, buttering them on each side. Pour the batter and flatten with a spatula. Then continue with the rest of the filo sheets (should be about 20-25 in a package). Trim the edges and with a sharp knife, outline the serving squares on the top sheet (you dont have to actually cut them, just press the knife on the top surface to mark them - they should be about 2 inche squares (5 cm). Bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes, or until the top sheet is dark brown. Now cut the squares you marked earlier and serve, after letting it cool a little.
