Ingredients
  

  • 1 10 by 10 inch puff pastry sheet
  • dusting of flour optional but helpful
  • cup grated mozzarella
  • 100 grams any feta
  • 1 egg — replacement below
  • ¾ cup of frozen thawed spinach that you squeezed out from the water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Thaw your puff pastry as per the package instructions and dust your board, counter, or to save time you can do this straight onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper too.
  • I place my puff pastry on top and I fold all the edges about a quarter inch towards the middle. I take a fork and dip it in flour and a crimp the edges all around. In a separate bowl whisk one egg with a little bit of water and brush it all around the border.
  • To make the filling add the mozzarella, egg, feta, and spinach into a separate bowl and mix it together. Add the filling to the middle of your pastry and spread it in the middle within the square with a spoon.
  • Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
  • Optionally broil for 1 minute on top but watch it the whole time. Enjoy and please share it with your love ones.

Notes

If you want to leave out the egg you will have to use a creamy or type of cheese like a ricotta or simply mix feta with a cream cheese you like. I have not tried it but I am confident that it will work without the egg as well. To replace the egg wash you can simply brush the ends with some avocado oil or butter. Feel free to use any feta you like. If you use fresh spinach make sure you cook it a little bit in a pan and squeeze out the water. If you use frozen spinach make sure you thaw it and squeeze out the water in a cheese cloth.
