South African-Greek Cheese Pie
75 mins (prep 30, cooking 45)
21 ingredients
4-8 servings
This very delicious pie is my version of the Greek Tiropita, tweaked considerably. Please note that substitions can be used, i.e. pine nuts instead of walnuts, and I think pickled red bell peppers will work instead of piquante peppers (peppadews), although nothing approximates the wonderful tang of piquante peppers. Metric weights and measures are given in brackets. Try and find smoked mozzarella -- it does make a difference to the taste! It's an unashamedly rich pie, of course! Can be served as a vegetarian main dish with a healthy mixed salad, or in small portions with ovenbaked chicken pieces. If you use a larger dish, which will yield a flatter pie, don't cover the top with the phyllo (cover lightly with foil instead), and cut into small squares as a snack food. Prep time includes grating some of the cheeses.
