Easy Ham & Cheese Phyllo pie

(In Greek)

Happy new year my friends, I wish that this year will be better than the last one, peaceful but fun, a rich soil for good things to grow.
Now the truth is that for me it doesn't seem to be close to my wishful thoughts but then again... Its still January!
Today I have a delicious, super easy and kid friendly phyllo pie, the one that i usually make when I don't have too much time to make my own phyllo (but I will show you how in a future post).
Most of the kids will love this pie and the good thing is that you can choose your "toppings" accordingly.. to suit your tastes.
Easy Ham and Cheese Phyllo Pie


2 tbsp of olive oil for the pan
50 gr butter
Half packet of phyllo pastry (plain or country style preferred) in room temperature
6 eggs in room temperature
½ cup of milk
¾ cup Greek yogurt
200 gr cream cheese in room temperature
200 gr feta cheese
300 gr of Gruyere or Gouda or any medium sharp cheese
Apprx 1 cup of diced ham, smoked turkey or mortadela
A pinch of nutmeg
A touch of salt
Freshly ground black pepper
½ cup bubbly water or club soda

How to make

1.    Gather all the things you’ll need for the recipe on top of your counter and let them warm up a bit.
2.    Using a small pot melt the butter in low temperature, set aside.
3.    Preheat the oven to 380 F
4.    Use the olive oil to grease the pan.
5.    In a big bowl mix the eggs using a whisk, and add the milk, yogurt, cream cheese and all the other cheeses. Mix and add ham, a pinch of nutmeg, pepper and just a little salt because the pie is cheesy salty. Finally add the bubbly water and stir just enough. Set aside
6.    Take one phyllo pastry and just squish it gently and place inside the pan. Take another one and squish and place loosely beside the first one and repeat (See photos). The phyllo pieces should not be to tight with each other.

7.    Pour the wet cheesy mixture on top of the pan and using a spoon spread it so it goes everywhere ;)
8.    Bake in the middle of the stove for 40 – 45 minutes until its brownish and bubbly.
9.    Let it cool for 10 minutes and cut into pieces.
10.    Enjoy ;)
