LEEK AND SAUSAGE PIE

Today i’m making a creative leek pie. It’s purely greek but playful, with leek sausage.

Ingredients

  • 12 phyllo sheets
  • 1 dry onion
  • 3 leeks
  • 3 spring onions
  • 3 tablespoons herbs (oregano, mint, basil), finely choped
  • 250 gr feta cheese
  • 250 gr gruyere
  • 2 eggs 250 gr leek sausage, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • salt
  • pepper, freshly ground
  • olive oil, for the pastry sheets

Instructions

  • Dice the dry onion, and cut into thin slices the leeks and spring onions.
  • Put 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet to burn.
  • First saute the dry onion and then add leeks and spring onions.
  • Saute until they wither and lose their liquids.
  • As soon as they wither, remove them and transfer them to a large bowl.
  • Add the grated cheese, eggs, herbs, paprika, salt, pepper and mix well.
  • Cut the leek sausage into thin slices, put it in the bowl and mix.
  • Grease well a round baking pan.
  • At the base, put 2 phyllo sheets and grease them well.
  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture and put one more phyllo sheet.
  • Oil it with a brush and repeat the same process for all the sheets.
  • Once the phyllo and the mixture are finished, cut the surface with a sharp knife, without reaching at the bottom of the pan. This helps to cook thephyllo better and become crisp.
  • Bake in a well preheated oven at 180 °C for 45 minutes or until it gets a nice golden color.
