Cheese Pies – Tyropita


1/2 kilo / 1 pound of Féta cheese,
either whole or in pieces
Four tablespoons butter or
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
Salt, pepper, nutmeg


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.
