Potato and Leek Phyllo Pastry

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • For the filling-
  • 1/2 lbs mashed potatoes
  • 2 ans 1/2 cups cleaned and cut leek
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup grated mixed cheese
  • For the topping-
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp yogurt
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda


Boil the potatoes, peel and mash them.Let them cool for at least 20 min.
Add the paprika, salt, black pepper, nutmeg and eggs!
In a pan sautee the Leeks with a tbsp of vegetable oil until they change their color to bright green. . Remember, this will take no more than 3 min! The leeks are very delicate, you don't want them to "melt".
In a big bowl combine the potatoes and leeks. Open the phyllo dough and place a couple of sheet on the bottom of a greased pan.
Now you can preheat the oven at 350F.
Spread couple of spoons of the potato-leek mixture over the phyllo dough and sprinkle the cheese on top.
Roll 3-4 sheets of phyllo dough together ( as shown in the picture). You can add as much sheets as you like, I like to roll 3 at first and then "close" it with 2 more on top of the opening of the roll.
Over the sheets in the greased baking pan place the rolls in a spiral as show in the picture, until you have finished all the sheets and potato-leek mixture.
If you have some cheese left, add it to the topping and spread evenly over the pastry.
Bake at 350 F for 40 min or until golden brown on top. Enjoy!
