  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, eggs and feta cheese until well blended. Brush melted butter onto one sheet of phyllo dough at a time, and layer them in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish until you have 7 sheets. Let the sheets rest up against the sides of the dish as well. Spread the cheese mixture over the phyllo layers, then repeat the process with 7 more sheets, tucking in the sides around the edges.
  3. Bake for about 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown and crisp. Cut into squares and serve warm.


  • Variation
  • This recipe can also be prepared by spooning the filling onto cut buttered phyllo strips and folding into repeated triangles.

Delicious! Just as good as my Greek friend's recipe. Here's a trick...go easy on the butter. I originally felt that I had to cover the entire sheet with butter. It's not necessary. The tiro...

My boyfriend loves this dish! It is one of his favorites. I have also made it low-fat using f/f cottage and feta cheese as well as spray butter. It still tasted great. Very rich and heavy, s...

This is an excellent recipe. I added thyme, oregano, and nutmeg (didn't have any mint) as one reviewer suggested. I also used low-fat cottage cheese and cooking spray, as another reviewer ment...

This recipe reminds me of a dish my dad used to make, but he used ricotta and feta cheeses, no cottage cheese. Normally he would fold the phyllo into triangles and fill them with the egg and che...

I only used 1/2 cup butter and these got too greasey and not flaky at all. I thought the filling had too much egg and not enough cheese even though I used 10 oz of feta cheese. I also used my ...

I've never had these before, but I found them a little bland. I added a package of frozen spinach (thawed and drained) and some chopped up sundried tomatoes and it turned out a little bit more f...
