Spinach-Tomato Phyllo Bake Recipe

From her kitchen in Glasgow, Scotland, Shirley Kacmarik sends this flaky phyllo bake with an excellent mix of flavors. The low-fat main dish features tomatoes, feta and spinach with a pleasant amount of dill and nutmeg for a special meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. + standing YIELD:6 servings


  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 10 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • Butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 large tomatoes, sliced


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients; set aside.
  • 2. Spritz one sheet of phyllo dough with butter-flavored spray. Place in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray, allowing one end of dough to hang over edge of dish. Repeat with four more phyllo sheets, staggering the overhanging phyllo around edges of dish. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
  • 3. Spoon a third of the spinach mixture into crust. Layer with half of the tomatoes, another third of the spinach mixture, remaining tomatoes and remaining spinach mixture. Spritz and layer remaining phyllo dough as before.
  • 4. Gently fold ends of dough over filling and toward center of baking dish; spritz with butter-flavored spray. Cover edges with foil. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
