Do you love spinach pie? If your answer is no then you should still try this great Greek snack! We had to spinach haters in the house and they still munched away on these yummy Spanakopita bites. Traditional Spanakopita can be a bit of work to make but Zo really came up with a easy and fast way to cook these up.

Ingredients:
Phyllo dough (cut into 4 inch rectangles)
1 10 oz package frozen spinach (chopped)
3/4 cup sweet onion
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1/2 cup feta (crumbled)
1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
2-3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp water

In a medium skillet over medium high heat saute onions for 5-7 minutes or until turning translucent. Add garlic and saute for 1 additional minutes. Whisk in spinach and water till mixed well, then whisk in feta and seasonings and cook down for 5-7 minutes.

Brush rectangles of dough with olive oil and place 1-2 tsp of spinach filling on the end of one side of the dough and fold the other half at an angle over the mixture creating a triangle. Now brush another piece of dough and fold over the filled triangle sealing the seam. Now take 2 tsp of filling and put 1 tsp on each side of your sealed triangle and fold another brushed piece of dough around your bite. Now fold one more brushed piece of dough around the bite sealing the seam and sit on a non-stick baking sheet. Continue making bites until you are out of filling (or dough.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
