Greek Lamb Pie

Recipe by JustJanS
READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Lightly grease a 8 1/2 in springform pan.
  • Fry the mince and onion in a dry nonstick pan until golden.
  • Add the garlic, tomatoes, mint, nutmeg and seasoning.
  • Bring to the boil, and simmer, stirring occasionally until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Wash the spinach and remove any tough stalks, then cook the leaves in only the water clinging to them for about 2 minutes.
  • Drain the leaves well and then mix through the meat mixture.
  • I sometimes add 1/4 lb of crumbled feta at this stage.
  • Lightly brush each sheet of phyllo pastry with oil and lay in overlapping layers in the tin, leaving enough over hanging to wrap over the top.
  • Spoon the meat and spinach mix in then wrap the pastry over to enclose.
  • Scrunch up any remaining pastry into balls, and place over the top of the pie.
  • Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and then bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden.
  • I like to let this cool a little, and serve it with a green salad.
