If you love to eat pie, but don’t want to hassle with pie dough, then this recipe from our friend Esra from Charmer Kitchen is just for you! Crisp, flaky layers of phyllo dough with a savory filling of spinach and mushroom make for a great low-carb side dish or a fantastic vegetarian option for a holiday dinner.

  • 12 sheets Athens® Phyllo Dough (9″ x 14″), thawed
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 5 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup Provolone cheese, shredded


Thaw 1 roll of phyllo, following thawing instructions on the package. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Unroll and cover phyllo with plastic wrap and then a slightly damp towel to prevent drying out. In a medium pan, melt the butter, and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together, eggs, heavy whipping cream, salt, and black pepper. Add shredded cheese, and set aside. 

Spray a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray; set aside. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally until browned. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring often, until softened and tender, about 5 minutes. Add spinach; cook, tossing constantly, for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Place the first sheet of phyllo dough into the prepared pan and brush with melted butter. Layer and repeat with 11 more sheets of phyllo dough (totaling 12). Spoon spinach mixture onto phyllo dough and add egg mixture over the top, mix slightly. Fold the edges of the phyllo dough over the filling. Brush the edges of the phyllo dough lightly with melted butter.

Place in the oven and bake for 35 – 40 minutes, until the filling is puffed, set, and lightly colored on the surface. Remove from the heat and allow to sit for at least 20 minutes before cutting. Once cooled, serve.
