Spinach Mail

When me and my mom feel like cool ass bakers with pastry sheets and all, we make…

Spinach Mail


  • 1-2 cups chopped Spinach
  • 1 finely chopped Onion
  • 2 minced Garlic Cloves
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper Powder
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • Filo Pastry Sheets
  • 1/2 cup of Melted Butter



  1. Heat butter on medium heat.
  2. Add onion and garlic, and sauté till translucent.
  3. Add chopped spinach, garlic powder and black pepper powder.
  4. Cook till spinach wilted.
  5. Remove the spinach mix from the pan to a mixing bowl.
  6. Cool the spinach mix in fridge for at least 1-2 hours.
  7. Ready the grated cheese to start the filling.

To make the pie/puff:

  1. Cut out sheet in half to use as equal layers.
  2. Take 1 sheet at a time, place it on a flat platform.
  3. Butter the top of the sheet and add another pastry sheet on top.
  4. Now butter the top of 2nd sheet, then repeat with more sheets. Note: The more sheets you add the more puffy and crispier it becomes.
  5. Spoon the filling in the center of the sheet.
  6. Add cheese on the filling.
  7. Slowly, close one side of the sheet to the center. Butter the top.
  8. Close all sides one by one, and butter their top.
  9. Closed like a parcel. Butter the top of the puff.
  10. Place the puffs in the oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven when puff should be golden brown.

Enjoy your crispy bite.
