Greek Onion Pie with Feta Cheese (Recipe)


✅ Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit 180 degrees celsius.

✅ 2 onions (slice the onion)

✅ 5 cups sliced mature onions preferably red

✅ 2 ½ cups sliced spring onions

✅ 8 ounces feta cheese

✅ 2 Tablespoons anthotiro or ricotta or other soft cheese
✅ 1 heaping tablespoon Greek yogurt

✅ 3 eggs

✅ 3 tablespoons dill

✅ 3 tablespoons parsley

✅ 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos) for sautéing + ¼-⅓ cup for brushing the phyllo

✅ 1 package phyllo dough defrosted
✅ salt and pepper


1️⃣ Sauté first the mature onions in 3 tablespoons of olive oil for 2-3 minutes.

2️⃣ Add the spring onions and sauté for an additional 6-7 minutes until soft. Add the herbs and some salt and pepper. Mix well and remove from heat.

3️⃣ In a large bowl mash the feta, soft cheese and yogurt with a fork.

4️⃣ Whip the eggs and add to the cheese mixture. Add the cooled onion mixture to the cheese mixture and blend well.

5️⃣ Take a pan (I used a 10 X 12 inch pan), brush with a bit of olive oil and spread the first phyllo sheet, brush the sheet with olive oil and layer another phyllo sheet and brush with olive oil, continue this so you have a total 6 sheets.

6️⃣ Spread the filling on top of the sheets. Layer the rest of the sheets on top of the filling brushing each one with olive oil.

7️⃣ Score the pie in as many pieces you prefer ( I cut in 9 large ones).

8️⃣ Bake in the lower level of the oven for about 1 hour.

9️⃣ Remove from oven and let it cool.
