Spinach and Cheese Filo Individual Pies (Frozen)

Spinach and Cheese Filo Individual Pies (Frozen)


Some members of my household get a kick out of an individual pie: and so this dinner fits that bill. A winning combination of fresh spinach, feta, ricotta and a little parmesan, wrapped up as a pleasing pie for one (2 or 4 in a package). 

The filo is layered with a little olive oil, rather than buttering every layer. Thirty-five minutes or so in a hot oven and you'll have flakey, golden brown goodness, and dinner on the table. No need for defrosting: you can cook them straight from frozen.

It also strikes me that these could be an excellent meal standby for those occasions when "dinner" (or substantial snack) needs to be served at all hours of the day or night. Or on the side of a soccer field, or netball court. Or whilst seated on an unyielding, bum-numbing bench seat placed in an obscure corner of a gymnastics gym... Ooh, we do get to dine in some stellar places, don't we?
