Baked Spanakopita Tortilla
Its no secret that spinach pie (aka spanakopita) is my love language. I grew up eating it all the time, homemade, everything from scratch. My family never used store bought phyllo. And it was the bomb to say the least. Indescribable. I, however love to create simple recipes that aren’t as time consuming but are still really delicious.
Make sure you pick up a large burrito sized tortilla, flour, low carb, spinach; any kind you prefer. My baking dish was 10×7 inches in size and I baked it in my mini convection oven.
If you like this simple dish, you will enjoy my Baked Egg Tortilla Supreme or my Baked Egg Zucchini Tortilla.

Baked Spanakopita Tortilla
- 1 large burrito size tortilla
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 2 handfuls baby spinach, rough chop
- 2 scallions, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbs dill, chopped
- 3 eggs
- 1 oz feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 handful shredded mozzarella cheese
- garnish: chili pepper flakes
- Preheat your oven to 400° F. Lightly spray a small baking dish with olive oil. My dish was 10×7 inches.
- In a skillet, heat the olive oil and saute your scallions for 1 minute. Add in the baby spinach and toss to mostly wilt. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the dill and remove from pan. Pat dry with paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
- Place the tortilla into the dish with the edges coming up against the sides of the dish. Add in the eggs and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread out the spinach mixture over the whites, crumble on the feta and the mozzarella cheese. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until set to your desired doneness. Remove from the pan and slice in half or quarters. Top with chili pepper flakes and enjoy.
In recipe it says add eggs. Then later spread spinach over whites. Are you supposed to separate egg whites and only add them? This sounds delicious.
Hi Shelley, yes, it means add the spinach onto the clear parts (not the yolks). I like to leave those visible since they are raised. But its not mandatory. Thanks and I hope you try it!!
Haven’t made this yet but I will.
I have a question. Can you whip the eggs a little and put the spinach over the beaten eggs and bake?
Hi Connie, YES you can beat the eggs before you add them! Great tip!
Is it yolky when cut into. Looks great and i would love this but my kids dont love eggs that much.
Hi Kim, You can beat the eggs before adding them in if you don’t want to see the eggs whole.
This was really good 👍 but the tortilla stuck to the pan . Did I not add enough oil ?
I’m glad you liked it. Sometimes mine gets stuck too. That’s probably it! Add alittle bit more oil!
Or you could put it on grease proof paper (baking parchment)
Great tip! Thank you!
how long when air frying
12 minutes.. but check to make sure its to your desired doneness. Some people like their eggs well done and some air fryers are stronger than others.
Can you use dried dill? I always have that on hand
Hi Anne, sure! Just lessen the amount to 1/2 teaspoon!
The flavors in this are amazing! You really have like your spinach. I actually forgot to add the pepper flakes but I used cracked pepper AND I used Habanero flour tortillas from Trader Joe’s. Yaaasssss!
Okay, I used my Airfryer at 400 and it was DONE in 10 minutes. Any more and I would have set fire to it. So, the bottom wasn’t crispy so I dropped it into the pan I used earlier to sauté. Whala! I am so happy she has a website and can’t wait to try more recipes!
I was concerned this would be too rich, but no, it was perfect! I’ll make this again
most definitely just as is.
I have made it three times and it seriously is so easy, yum and quick! I added sun dried tomatoes in last 1 and forgot to cook up spinach, tossed it in fresh. Such a winner and showed my kids how easy it is to make a healthy quick meal.
This turned out well. I used gruyere cheese instead of mozzarella and two medium tortillas overlapped since the store didn’t have large. I like how this recipe is light and versatile. Would make again and maybe try other greens for fun.
l made this last night for dinner and again for lunch today. such an easy recipe. I didn’t use dill but used some souvlaki seasoning I had. I added the spinach first then poured the beaten eggs over top, then the cheeses and more souvlaki seasoning, cooked for 18 min.
Hi Lucia, Sounds delicious with the Souvlaki Seasoning!! Can you share the brand of that?
Absolutely amazing! I have made this dish 3 times in 7 days 😂 My family and I just can’t get enough! Thank you for sharing such a delicious, healthy and easy to make meal 🙂
Hi Rosie, THat’s so awesome! I love reading that it was enjoyed by everyone! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
Can you add pepperoni ?
Easy, quick, and delicious!
My favorites!! Thanks for trying!
Stumbled across your TikTok this morning – got hooked on salmon cups
…too early to get out of bed. Fell down your recipe hole and sprang out of bed 1 hour later – wrote a grocery list and spent $90 (when I really only needed eggs 😂) @ 7:30 am. Ready for a new week of exciting meals! Can’t wait…cooking now…Thanks so much!
Hi Robin, ahahahaha recipe hole. I hope you enjoyed everything so far!!! Thank you for the message!
Eggs: Beat first? Whites or whole?
Hi sala, you can beat them or throw them in whole like i did. Both options work here!
Looks good and I plan to give it a try after a grocery run. I’m wondering if I could use flat bread or Naan rather than a tortilla?
Hi Pat, I think that would definitely work too!
Was delicious – I wish I had made two!
Hi Amanda, I feel like that at the end of cooking too! Leftovers would have beeen great lol
Made this last week and making it again today. Best lunch ever!
I threw this recipe together and served as a side dish with our dinner last night…..fantastic! My variation – I used 2 outer aisle broccoli thin pizza crusts instead of a giant tortilla to make it truly low carb. It was perfect. I would LOVE though to make this with a tortilla – which do you prefer that is actually low carb AND has great ingredients. Siete has great ingredients, but their large tortilla really isn’t low in carbs .. Is there another you were using to keep this a lower carb version of spanakopita? Again – fabulous recipe. I’ll make it again!!
This looks amazing and my husband and I will definitely try it but I wanted to ask if there was a reason you don’t whisk the eggs together? Will they be overcooked? Is this just a Mediterranean food thing? We’re trying it regardless, just curious… and thanks for all your great recipes and tok toks!
This was absolutely delicious. Made a rookie mistake and covered the eggyoks but even still it was delicious. Used whole wheat carb wise Tumaro’s wraps. Spayed the casarole dish as well as the back of the wraps lightly with olive oil. Added some sun-dried tomatoes and two teaspoons of cottage cheese to the Spinach. It baked up nicely, cut well, did not stick and made a great wrap.
Really great! I used cheese I had on hand, I didn’t have feta, and it was delicious. Thanks!
Hi Camille, glad you enjoyed – and yes this is great with all cheeses for sure!!
doubled the recipe today and did two in pie plates, tortilla fit perfectly, scrambled eggs first and mixed in spinach …. son popped over for brunch, we ate one, could have had more but saving, very good, thank you
what is the temperature to be set on connection or oven….
400F temp = 200C
We are cooking this recipe at least 2 times a month, minimum. very simple and nutricious. Thank you for this!
Hi Sly, thats so great! And thanks so much for the rating!
Hi! I just discovered this recipe today and I can’t wait to try it!
I have everything on hand except spinach… I have frozen kale… Do you think I could make that work? 🙂
Hi! Yes kale definitely works. Just get all the water out. This is Stella btw 🥰
I made this today and was delicious. very simple to make. thank you for sharing.
super prático e saboroso!
