My Big Fat Greek Easter

Greek Mezze 

This year I wanted to host Easter at my place. Why not? I finally have a kitchen big enough to cook the amount of food needed to feed a bunch of hungry Greeks, and I had a few new recipes I wanted to test out. I made the traditional recipes from scratch: spinach pie, baklava, tzatziki, lemon potatoes, lamb chops – and everything else had a Greek or Mediterranean twist to it, like my "Greek Deviled Eggs". What makes them Greek? Yup, I put some feta in the mixture. Mmm. See below for some bites and stay tuned for recipes..

  1. Nice spread. Greeks and Italians usually come hungry. Nice play-by-play on the Spanakopita, looks perfect.
