Spanakopita is a delicious spinach and feta pastry that is wrapped in crispy, butter-laden phyllo dough. … Several cultures have their own version of this treat.
… It isn’t always easy to find the time to make the whole pie, or work with the phyllo, or even pre-heat the oven for that matter. I found a way to have all the flavor of the original with the ease of a sandwich. I was inspired to make this when I was in Rome and went into a panini shop where they had panini filled with just cooked spinach and buffalo mozzarella. They were a cheap and delicious lunch on the go for me, a broke, American backpacker. With that in mind, I decided that spanakopita grilled cheese would be a no-brainer for a recipe. ~ Alexandra V.
