Let’s twist again, like we did last summer
Following food-filled holidays to Greece, Bosnia, Slovenia, Croatia and Bulgaria, Mr Foodie loves his Balkan foodie treats, so when I saw this in Waitrose I knew it would (probably) make him happy. He had tried Lidl’s borek/burek attempts before but weren’t all that impressed.
On this occasion, the frozen filo pie is filled with spinach, mizithra and feta cheeses. It looked good on the packaging, but would it taste good once home and cooked?
The packaging meant that the filo pie was in good shape after its trip home. Once out the packaging it looks like it is filled well. In it went to the oven and around 30 mins later it was time for the taste test.
Looks good, nice colour and crisp looking pastry, which doesn’t appear to have any soggy or greasy bits.
The filo pastry puffed up well, dwarfing the filling.
👍 from Mr Foodie (and myself) light and crisp filo pastry and a soft and moist filling. Not greasy at all, this was an evenly cooked pie. A bit more filling would make this pie as good as a homemade one. We would buy this again.
The Alesis Spinach Twist Pie is £3.00 from Waitrose.
