  • 100 grams of melted butter (for brushing ‌the phyllo)
  • 7 phyllo sheets


  1. In a bowl, crumble​ the ⁣feta cheese ‍and add the grated ​cheese⁤ and the eggs. Mix well.
  2. Brush a baking pan with butter, ‌and layer a phyllo sheet onto it. Brush this sheet with butter, and repeat for three sheets.
  3. Spread the cheese mixture onto the ‍phyllo sheets, and cover with the rest of the sheets,⁢ brushing each sheet with butter as you go ​along.
  4. Cut the pie into pieces, and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 40⁤ minutes, or until it turns golden brown.

Traditional Greek Coffee

Pair your ​freshly baked ‍Tyropita with ​an invigorating cup of strong Greek coffee. It’s easy ​to ‍make and the perfect way to start your morning with ⁢a caffeine kick!

Greek Coffee Ingredients:

  • 1‌ cup of cold water

  1. Fill the briki (Greek coffee pot) with​ water, add ‌the coffee and sugar if you like, and stir once.
  2. Heat the briki over‍ medium heat and let the coffee slowly come ​to ‍the boil. As the coffee heats, it will start to⁤ froth. Watch it carefully!
