yummmm from Liz Bey

1 loaf of thin french bread (bagette)

2 cups aged cheddar cheese, grated fine

4 tbsp. Soft butter

½ cup mayonnaise

chopped parsely

OPTIONAL ¾ cup (1 lb.) crab or imitation crab

Cut the bread in half lengthwise. Scoop out the centre leaving a one inch shell. Blend cheese , butter, mayonnaise and crab. Stuff the bread and sprinkle in the parsley. Bake at 350 deg. For 25 min. Or until bubbly.

Liz says that if she doesn’t use the crab, she uses an equal amount of celery, water chestnut and chopped green onion.

This is from Elizabeth Bey. It is one of her favourite recipes.                           300F for 1 hour

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup finely chopped onions

freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup finely chopped scallions

1/3 cup milk

2 pounds spinach, washed, drained, and finely chopped

1/2 pound feta, finely crumbled

1/4 cup finely cut fresh dill (2 Tbsp. dried)

4 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

1/2 pound butter or margarine, melted

16 sheets of phyllo

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add the onions and scallions and cook stirring frequently until soft but not brown. Stir in the spinach, cover tightly and cook for 5 minutes.Add the dill, parsley, salt and pepper while stirring and shaking the pan. Cook uncovered for about 10 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the spinach sticks slightly to the pan.

Transfer to a bowl. Add the milk and cool to room temperature.

Add the cheese and slowly beat in the eggs. Taste for seasoning.

With a pastry brush, coat the bottom ad the sides of a 7-inch by 12-inch dish with melted butter. Line the dish with a sheet of phyllo, pressing the edges into the corners of the dish. Brush the surface with 2 to 3 tsp. of butter. Continue each layer until there are 8 layers in the pan.

Spread the spinach mix on top of this. Add the remaining layers of phyllo, buttering each one. With scissors, trim off the excess phyllo. Butter the top with remaining butter.

Bake until golden.
