What Is Spanakopita?
Spanakopita is a wonderfully Greek pie that’s delicious, crispy, and packed with flavor. The filling is principally made with cheese, as well as a lot of other odds and ends from the kitchen.
The true hallmark of good spanakopita is the pastry. It should make use of filo pastry, and be well and truly crispy, not to mention beautifully golden-brown and flaky.

How To Store Spanakopita?
Already cooked Spanakopita will keep well in the refrigerator for two to three days. Beyond this point, we recommend discarding it as it contains eggs, which is always a bit of a concern from a food safety point of view.
You can also pre-make Spanakopita by preparing the recipe up to the cooking step. Then cover and cook when you're ready. However, we recommend that you do this at least one day in advance, because at this point the egg will be raw in the filling, which is even more risky for food safety.
