Lamb and Feta Filo Pie

Lamb and Feta Filo Pie

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 400 g (14oz) lean minced Scotch Lamb

  • 25 g (1oz) butter, melted

  • 4 - 6 large sheets of filo pastry

  • Half tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 bunch spring onions, chopped

  • 3 tbsp raisins or sultanas

  • 100 g (3.5oz) Feta cheese, crumbled

  • 3 tbsp freshly chopped parsley, dill or mint (or a mix of all)

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • Freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Method

  1. Preheat oven to:190oC / Fan 170oC / Gas Mark5
  2. Lightly grease an 18cm (7inch) round spring-form tin with some butter then line with the sheets of filo, brushing between each layer with a little butter, saving a little for the top. Let the surplus filo overhang the tin.
  3. Stir-fry the minced lamb in a frying pan until it becomes brown and crumbly. Stir in the cinnamon and spring onions, cooking for a minute or two more.
  4. Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Season with black pepper. (No need to add salt as the feta is quite salty). Spoon the mixture into the filo-lined tin folding the surplus pastry over the top, scrunching it together loosely. Brush with the remaining melted butter.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden and crisp on top. Leave to rest for 10 minutes before carefully removing from the tin. Serve at room temperature.

Serving suggestions

 

Another great idea for a picnic or lunchbox, accompany with small sticks of celery, carrot and peppers and Greek style yoghurt and mint dip.

To make a Greek salad chop some tomato, cucumber, red onion and fresh coriander and mix with a handful of rocket leaves and a few Kalamata olives. Crumbling some Feta cheese over the top is optional.

 

Filo pastry is easy to use and offers a healthier alterative to our traditional pastry. Packed with a fragrant combination of lean minced Scotch lamb and Greek Feta cheese… enjoy these sunny flavours with a Greek style salad.
