Ingredients

  • #7 Phyllo Sheets, thawed*
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 4- ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 sprigs thyme leaves
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly grease a 12x9 rectangular baking dish; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, cottage cheese, cream cheese, feta cheese, oil, thyme leaves, salt and pepper.
  • Whisk the mixture until thoroughly combined. Mixture will be runny.
  • Spread 1/4 cup of egg mixture onto the bottom of previously prepared baking dish.
  • Place 1 phyllo sheet over the mixture. (Cut phyllo sheets to fit the baking dish.)
  • Brush it with melted butter.
  • Layer two more phyllo sheets, brushing each sheet with melted butter before adding the next.
  • Ladle 1/4 of feta/egg mixture over phyllo sheets.
  • As you work, keep the unused stack of phyllo sheets covered so they don't dry up.
  • Stack 3 more phyllo sheets, brushing each sheet with melted butter before adding the next, and cover with 1/4 of the egg mixture.
  • Continue the process until all ingredients are used up, ending with egg mixture on top.
  • Bake for 1 hour. Casserole will be browned and puffed up.
  • Lower oven temperature to 250 and continue to bake for 30 minutes, or until custard is baked and set.
  • Let cool at least 30 minutes before cutting.
  • Cut into bars.
  • Serve warm or cold.

Notes

*#7 Phyllo Sheets are thicker and work perfectly in this casserole. If you can't find #7's, you can still use the regular phyllo sheets, but stack 4 instead of 3.
