Spanakopita Crescents Recipe is a short cut to the traditional Greek Appetizer that takes much longer to make. Once again it is time for Secret Recipe Club reveal. So fun to go through other food blogs and find a recipe to try. Even more exciting is to see what others thought was an interesting recipe to try off my blog.
For those of you new to this club concept, each month we are assigned another blog and secretly find a recipe post that we would like to try and then reveal our experience with their recipe.
I was matched up with Flavors by Four, which I think is a family of foodies who share their recipes together on one blog. Please correct me if I am wrong. I love love love Greek food and often visit our local greek restaurant. My favorite thing on a greek menu is the spanakopita. I had a friend who used to make these and she moved away before I got my private cooking lesson on making spanakopita.
I was thrilled to find Flavors by Four’s simple version, Spanakopita Crescents REcipe I decided to make them as an appetizer before our pasta but we have eaten spanakopita as a main dish too.! Filled with delicious spinach and feta combination you can’t go wrong. It is an easy recipe and but has all the yummy flavor of the traditional spanakopita.
