Fast and easy spinach pie with phyllo dough


Fast and easy and the main clue is a combination of spices.

Step by step spinach pie with bacon?

I made it with phyllo dough.



  • 500 gr phyllo dough
  • 200 ml Greek yogurt
  • 3 big eggs
  • 400 gr baby spinach
  • 150 gr bacon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • salt, white pepper according your taste
  • juice of 1/2 of lemon
  • olive oil


  1. Chop the bacon and put it in the pan to saute with a little bit of olive oil. Once it turns its colour, remove from the pan, and set aside.
  2. Wash the spinach and remove the stems if needed. In the same pan where the bacon is stewed, add spinach and saute for 2 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together two eggs, add a little bit of olive oil, juice of half a lemon, spinach, bacon, and season with nutmeg, cumin, pepper and salt if needed.
  4. Coat the baking pan (plus with a little bit of olive oil) in which you will bake the pie with 2-3 phyllo sheets on the bottom so that the ends come out of the pan. You will cover the pie with these ends. Dip the rest of the phyllo sheets into an egg, spinach, and bacon mixture. Then layer them lightly all around the bottom of the baking pan. Carefully fill the "pockets" between the segments of phyllo dough with extra of mixture eggs, bacon, spinach.
  5. When you reach the top of the pan (2-3cm from the bottom), place the final dry phyllo sheets, and use all the parts of phyllo dough that comes out of the baking pan to better cover the top of the pie. Coat the pie with a whipped egg and bake for 30-40 minutes at 180 °
  6. Leave to rest 5 minutes after oven but before cutting.

So there are no worries about the dough. Just go to the supermarket and buy it.  I always choose the thinnest that I can find.

We as a family, love crunchy and crispy things. That’s why my pies are always like that, well done in the oven.

What I keep in mind, all the time,  is how I arrange the phyllo sheets in a baking pan, and of course the thickness of the pie itself. The thicker the pie, the lest crunchy inside it is. This pie was 3cm high.

The second step is to saute smoked bacon in a pan with a little olive oil. I added some garlic, not more than 1-2 cloves.

Spinach, Bacon pie

After bacon is done. Remove it and put baby spinach in the same pan. The spinach with larger leaves may do, but in that case, you need to make extra work to remove the hard parts (stems) of spinach. Spinach takes about 2 minutes to saute.

Put 2 eggs in a separate bowl, mix them. Add 200ml of Greek yogurt, a little bit of olive oil, 1/2 lemon juice, some white pepper. Put back bacon and spinach in that mixture and combine well. Add some cumin and nutmeg in powder.

And then we are ready to assembly, but before we have a bonus part …

Assembly the spinach pie

Place a few phyllo sheets at the bottom of the baking pan so that a part of them comes out of the pan. With that part, you will cover the top of the pie on all sides.

Dip the rest of the phyllo sheets into the eggs and spinach mixture and layer them lightly in the baking pan. Do not press the phyllo to make it fit in the pan. Arrange the extra of the prepared mixture with eggs and spinach all around in the empty pockets of the puffy dough.

Leave one part of phyllo dough sheets without mixture for the top of the pie. You will cover your pie with them. Also, use all the parts of phyllo dough sheets that came out of the pan to cover beautifully all the parts of your pie.

Coat the ends of phyllo dough with whipped egg and bake in the oven at 180 ° C for 30-40 minutes.

After that, the spinach pie is ready for tasting.
