  • Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius)
  • In a large pan, heat the olive oil and sauté the spring onion until soft for about 5 minutes. Add the chopped leeks and heat stirring until leek wilts and softens for about 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure there are no liquids left.
  • Empty contents of pan (leek and spring onion) into a large bowl. Add the salt, pepper, dill and feta and blend well.
  • In a small bowl beat the eggs and add them to the leeks and blend.
  • Brush a round 10 inch pan with olive oil. Place your first phyllo on the base of the pan making sure it hangs over the pan. Brush with olive oil. Note: If you are using regular store bought phyllo use this method
  • Spread the leek mixture over the phyllo evenly.
  • Cover with second phyllo and join both phyllo sheets together twisting round the pan so it forms a border.
  • Brush the top phyllo with olive oil and score the pie where you will cut the pieces (do not cut all the way through).
  • Bake for about an hour until crust is golden.
  • Let it cool and cut in pieces.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

If you are using homemade phyllo, make the dough first. While it is resting (before rolling out) make the filling.
