Get ready to savor all the flavors of traditional Greek Spanakopita in a whole new way with this fun and easy Phyllo Spanakopita Roll! Imagine flaky layers of phyllo dough enveloping a creamy mixture of cheese and spinach.
To begin, preheat your oven, and grease two skillets. Combine the cream cheese, spinach, mozzarella, feta, dill, salt, and black pepper in a mixing bowl, stirring until the ingredients are well combined.
Lay three sheets of phyllo dough on a clean working surface, placing them vertically side by side. Overlapping the edges just slightly.
Brush the top of the dough with melted butter. Then, add three more sheets, and repeat until you have five layers of phyllo.
Spoon half of the spinach and cheese mixture along the shortest end of the layered dough.
Starting from the end with the filling, roll the phyllo into a log enclosing the filling as you roll. Carefully transfer the spanakopita roll seam side down to a prepared skillet.
Create a second roll following the same process, using the remaining filling, and place it in the second skillet.
Brush the tops of each roll with melted butter. Then, sprinkle black sesame seeds on top. Transfer the rolls to the oven, and bake just until the dough is golden brown and crispy.
