serves 6-8

ACTIVE TIME: 30 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 1/2 cup feta shredded
  • 1/2 cup cheese shredded (mozzarella, gouda, etc)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg beaten 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 package phyllo thawed
  • sesame seeds for garnish


  •  Preheat the oven to 400 F and thaw completely the phyllo dough.
  • Boil the potatoes and mash them with a fork in a bowl. 
  • Add the cheese, feta and spices in the bowl and stir.
  • Add the milk and the egg, and stir until everything is combined. 
  • Oil the bottom and sides of a round baking tray -approx. 35cm diameter.
  • Unroll the phyllo dough from the plastic sleeve and place one sheet of phyllo on a working surface and brush with olive oil. Spread some of the filling, making a lane on the edge of the larger side of the phyllo sheet and roll into a ‘sausage’. Then form a “snail” and place it on the baking tray.
  •  Repeat with the rest of the dough, placing the snail- rolls in the baking tray. 
  • Brash the surface of the pies with some milk and a beaten egg and sprinkle some sesame on top.
  • Bake for an hour, until golden and crispy.
