This Greek cheese pie is made with layers of crispy filo pastry and a filling of feta and Kefalotiri cheese. This is my mother-in-laws's recipe.
This Greek cheese is available in most of the larger supermarkets and in specialty cheese shops. Pecorino or Parmesan would be a good alternative in this recipe.
Excellent as is! Easy to make, even for someone who has never used phyllo dough. Made as a dish to take to my son's elementary class for their Greek studies unit and all the kids loved it! Thank you for the great recipe! - 20 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
AUTHENTIC! This is a AUTHENTIC recipe..many are not.. you can also use ALL FETA with the same other ingredients ..the Kefalori cheese is Not easy to find but using all feta is also traditional tiropita. Adding spinach as some did is spanakopita and that is a different item altogether! This is supposed to be ALL CHEESE! Thank you for sharing a traditional recipe ! Its great - 07 Aug 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a really wonderful and impressive dish. Served a s a main for vegetarians with greek salad and as a side for omnivores with steak added. I could see adding to this dish with spinach, onion, garlic, to make a different taste, but the original is wonderful just as it is. Thanks for a lovely dish! - 14 Apr 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
