Gratitude Monday - Spanakopita Substitution Edition

Tortillas can be used to make spanakopita, and for it I am grateful.
I love the spinach and feta pie. It is one of my favourite things, but phyllo pastry is beyond me and I intend on keeping it that way.
Yesterday I made spanakopita and used two tortillas in place of the pastry. I used a brand containing gluten because I can get away with a bit of it and they are much easier to work with. I found just the right pan, not quite as big as the tortilla so I could bring the sides up a bit, and heated the tortilla just enough.
Once the filling was in I put a second tortilla on top and tucked it in around the edges because it seemed like the right thing to do. It got a good coating of olive oil to keep it from getting all hard and crispy.
It worked.
The spanakopita pastry substitution was tasty and not all that involved to make.
For that I am grateful.

Phyllo is beyond me, too. It's one of the things MawMaw did not teach me to make, and in some ways i'm sorry and in some ways i'm relieved.

Your substitution sounds so easy and good, i want to try it soon, thank you!

Mary Anne, thank you.

Messymimi, it is and it was. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
