Patsavouropita is a traditional Greek Tyropita (cheese pie) but before giving the recipe let me explain what it means  because I know it’s all Greek to you.

Patsavoura means something which is not neatly stacked in an orderly way and also a rug used to mop up dirt and metaphorically it is a demeanor for an ugly woman but also for a woman of low ethics.

This means that this tyropita, which is made with store bought phyllo, requires no special skills or care and attention  for its preparation, it is easy to make plus it tastes terrific.

Feta is the main ingredient but you can add any other cheese you like.  I added some dried mint in mine because I love to pair mint with halloumi and feta but if you like you can add some other fresh herbs like spring onions, dill, parsley, thyme, oregano, fennel fronds etc.

Ι used a round baking tin but you can also use a square or rectangle one.  Just stack each phyllo with cheese next to each other until you fill the baking tin.


Patsavouropita

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time:  30 minutes
Makes:  1 tin 35 cm / 14 inches diametre

Ingredients:

1 packet (15 phyllo sheets – 400 grams)
350 grams crumbled feta
250 grams halloumi or graviera, grated
¾ cup olive oil
3 eggs
½ cup milk
1 tbsp dried mint or 4 – 5 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
Freshly grated black pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 180ο C / 350o F.

Mix the two cheeses together with mint.

Brush a baking tin with olive oil.

On your working surface open the phyllo and brush it lightly with olive oil.

Sprinkle cheese to cover the entire surface.

Fold the phyllo in the middle from its narrow part and then fold it once again.

Place it in the baking tin, starting from the sides of the baking tin, forming a circle and keep adding going towards the centre.

When done, brush the surface with olive oil.

Beat the eggs with a fork and mix in the milk, salt and pepper.

Using a spoon, wet all the phyllos.

Bake for about 25 – 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

    I’m always in for easy and cheesy pies. I love mint with feta and halloumi too. I’ve also just discovered a tiny deli run by Greek people where I can find all I need for this. They have a great selection, I’m so glad of it – their olives are a blessing!

    Ivy, So sorry. I still have your Just Bento Cookbook—I had a major health issue in April and we moved to a new house in late in October and it’s only now that I’ve unpacked most boxes and found it. Please email me (momgateway at gmail dot com)your home address so I can send it to you. So sorry!

    Ivy, I adore cheese pie and can remember my Greek student flatmates making this while I was trying to concentrate. Inevitably all I could think about was cheese pie. I love this easy recipe version that uses store-bought filo. I’m sold!
