Ingredients

  • 1/3 turkey meatloaf, crumbled (about 3 cups)
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 3/4 cup ricotta
  • 1 ounce feta, crumbled (1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest, plus 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • Red-pepper flakes (optional)
  • 12 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together meatloaf, spinach, ricotta, feta, and lemon zest and juice. Season with salt, pepper, and red-pepper flakes, if using.

  2. Step 2

    Lay 1 sheet phyllo on a work surface and lightly brush with oil (keeping remaining sheets covered with a damp towel). Top with 2 sheets phyllo, brushing each with oil. Cut in half crosswise and stack. Place 1 scant cup meat mixture in center; flatten slightly. Fold long sides inward to cover filling, followed by top and bottom. Lightly brush all over with oil. Repeat to make 3 more pies. Bake on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet until golden, 25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes.
