  • 3 Eggs Large, Lightly Beaten
  • Black Pepper To Taste
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Dill Chopped
  • 1/2 Pound Phyllo Dough

  • Mash feta with a fork breaking up larger clumps. Blend both kinds of cheese until smooth. Add eggs, black pepper, dill and 1 tablespoon melted butter.
  • Place 2 sheets of phyllo, one on top of other. Brush with melted butter. Cut into strips. ( I split the smaller width of the phyllo into equal thirds. )
