The Barefoot Contessa’s Spanakopita Challenge: Store Stuff

Known as The Barefoot Contessa, the Food Network’s Ina Garten will get some heat on this recipe from Greek restaurants and Greeks in their own kitchens, but she said you can make great spanakopita with store-bought ingredients.

Sounds like sacrilege to some, but she said it works and you don’t have the drudgery of making everything from scratch. And it’s a lot cheaper, not to mention faster which is what many prefer.

Garten’s Spanakopitas recipe is filled with creamy goat cheese and a flaky, butter phyllo that tastes absolutely divine, said a review in Yahoo. The Greek recipe uses frozen chopped spinach, plain dry breadcrumbs, toasted pine nuts, frozen phyllo dough, and more.

“This is one of those really versatile dishes you can put anything you want in, or take anything out,” Garten says in her video. So feel free to mix it up however you want to fit your cravings!

“Frozen spinach, boxed bread crumbs, frozen phyllo?” someone commented on the video. “Ina I love you! It can be easy but still elegant and delicious!” You know a lot of Greeks will be watching to see if it’s genuine.


Arkansas is the home of the razorbacks, of course, wild hogs that are the symbol of the state's university and why the fans at football games all scream “Soooo-ieee!” to disorient the other side but who knows if they're good eating.
