  • chefs screwing with a perfectly time tested recipe. Why on earth would you go and ruin an excellent spinach and feta cheese recipe with adding nonsense like pine nuts and rosemary and for God’s sake oregano on spinach. Are you mad. spinach does not go with oregano and rosemary they over power it. Dill, parsley, mint and green onions my friend.

  • I’m going to try this, but please guys wash any veg first before using, even so called pre washed in bags, am surprised Jamie didn’t wash it.

    I’ll skip the pine nuts and cheddar, and I’ll serve it with a nice crisp pepper and spring onion garnish.

    There’s nothing wrong with breaking the so called food rules so it’s not “authentic”, it’s about what tastes good to you, and adaptation.

  • One way of savory crepes(in Montenegro or among montenegrin families) is to filled them with dried, cured meat and rice(yes, sounds off but I guess people like it this way), fold them into the shapes of burritos, dipped in eggwash and then breadcrumbs, fried and served:)

  • OMG Beth! this is delicious!
    It must have a wonderful taste!
    I’m going to make my husband happy with your recipe!
    Thank you very much for this video and for your time and dedication for all of us!
    Kind regards!

  • Made this and it was an absolute hit! Added in some roasted butternut too and it worked super well.
    Edit: yes it went crunchcrunchcrunch

  • Too many flavours. I think he falls for a common failing whenever a traditional dish meets an affluent western kitchen. Also, too much rote practice. You don’t need to cook the spinach at all. You don’t need to add salt. And too many eggs! I think he wanted to make a frittata which has become the go-to “chuck everything in” dish. Chuck anything in, not everything.

  • Beth, I just subscribed. You are a wonderful cook and since you sometimes mention your French (?) husband, I think he must be a happy man. I just did your piccata chicken tonight and it was delicious. I look forward to other recipes.

  • Savory crepes are very popular in Russia! There is a whole fast food chain that is dedicated to blini (crepes) with different fillings called Teremok and I think they’ve even opened one up in NYC (I’m American, but teach ESL in Russia). My favourite filling there is potato wedges with chopped pickles and french fried onions. Also mashed potatoes with fried mushrooms is a great filling too!

  • I want Jamie to cook something Bulgarian. May be banitza or sarmi��I think it will be great mainly because he has never cooked Bulgarian cuisine before

  • Thanks, BETH, tastes great. I usually forget to respond with comment AFTER I try one of your delicious recipes. I keep returning to your recipes; maybe that tells you I love what you offer.
    I haven’t made savory crepes in DECADES. My husband enjoyed something new. I’m making them again for my busy daughter and family soon. Have you heard of Lemon Capellini cold salad for summer? I don’t know all ingredients; I would love to imitate; it’s simply delicious & refreshing because it’s cold and because it has a kick to it with lemon (I’m a lemon fan) and maybe basil or arugula garlic and salt(?). I’m watching my carbs, but gotta eat cool things most the time through summer.

  • make a sweet crepes and make a cream cheese topping and stuff it with chocolate mousse and strawberries. Looks similar total different taste.

  • I don’t have any nonstick pans, would it be too risky to try with stainless steel or cast iron? I think it will be ok if they are well-oiled.

  • Nice but Jamieeeeee…….we don’t put pine nuts in our feta and spinach pie in Greece!! but hey!! it’s an Oliver recipe with a twist lol:)

  • Wow!! I love how you can make this a day ahead (and thanks for all the great storage tips) and then make such a gorgeous brunch or lunch! This looks divine…thank you Beth!

  • We make this in Bulgaria. Its called Banitza. you can also make the filling with Stinging nettle eggs and feta cheese. Its reaalllyyyy good and tasty not to mention healthy. You can also have a drink called ” Airan”( yogurt and water) to go with it.

  • I still make these using my mother’s recipe using water instead of milk. We called them manicotti, baked in the oven with tomato sauce. Light and delicious.

  • When I was in Highschool I filmed a training video for a crepe restaurant in West Side Market in Cleveland, OH. This video made me want to get out the skillet and try all the recipes I have on file! 70 videos of crepes styles!

  • Good morning Beth! ��
    I’ve had dessert crepes, always sooo yummy!
    But, I have never had savory crepes…..ever!
    What rock have I been under?! LOL!
    These look delicious, a nice idea for a late lunch with my neighbors.
    I think the girls will love these.
    Thank you for another wonderful idea.
    Have a nice day Beth! ��

  • Dear Beth, a delicious savory crepe is brilliant! Might I suggest growing an herb garden wall (GardenCreationsLtd on etsy) herb with HydroCrystal gel soil; new plant Crystal pearls that are a cleaner option to growing herbs in soil.

  • I’ve stopped watching at the eggs and cheddar addition! I prefer the greek recipe without eggs snd cheddar of course!
    Or is this a spin on frittata with feta and spinach? Who knows…

  • Wow I couldn’t even last the first thirty seconds of this video, my mouth was watering so hard and I was drooling big time! Why must you do this to me, Beth?!

  • That is a great looking recipe and I would love to be cooking and eating it. It reminds me of some of the dishes I get from Schwan’s Home Delivery Service which I order.

  • Beth, this recipe and video is just in time for a ladies luncheon I’m having. But is there something I could add to the mushrooms instead of chicken for the VEGETARIAN of the group. Or maybe you have a crepe recipe already I can look for. I’d love your input. Thanks for another wonderful tutorial!

  • Those look SO good! I want to make these soon! I love how elegant your dishes are, but you make them seem easy/effortless. Drool!

  • for those who cannot find the phyllo pie, Akis show us how to make the phyllo dough from scratch on his channel.
    After watching countless phyllo pie recipe from Akis, I made 3 different types of the recipes and it was delicious and crunchy. Jamie didn’t scotch the top of the pie to let the liquid evaporate and add more layers of the phyllo sheets in between before adding the filling, it would have been more crispy.

  • @vicky, your gonna make me fat with all these Amazing dishes������������ is there an italluan dish that would be a default got like the States Peanut butter and Jelly?

  • This looks so good, I am actually drooling as I’m watching this.
    Thanks a lot for share with us
    As far as I know there is a web site of high quality and low price. You can buy if you want.

  • Heck yeah for just reaching into a hot pan and picking stuff up with your hands! It always freaks my dear MIL when I do that, she’s such a sweetheart.:)

  • they are very good something like canneloni, but crespelle are really crepes and they are french not italian, just that the italians made a sort of pasta out of them. very good with ham and cheese filling. like pancakes but without the baking powder

  • These make for such a delightful meal Beth. I’ve tried this recipe twice and it’s turned out utterly delicious both times.

    I always end up having to make substitutions though, but it still works a treat. I swapped out Worcestershire sauce for soy sauce, Gruyere cheese for mature cheddar and/or freshly grated parmesan, dill for coriander, even butter for olive oil and I tend to leave out garlic in the bechamel sauce. Results were still stunning and delectable! Thank you so much Beth for sharing this recipe with us!

  • Do you think I can freeze and store as made up parcels and defrost to cook at a later date? Would be nice to do a big batch and have them on hand!

  • I did it. Very good pie. Just I used puff pastry.lovely. just forgot to make hooks with fork on the top and bottom and had to bake it much longer in the oven. But np. I did it after 15min when I saw the problem and it was ok. Great. all turn out good!

  • Thank you for sharing this recipe, Beth. I consider myself a crepe lover! And the components of this creep (leeks, mushroom, chicken, bechamel sauce and gruyere cheese) are my favorites too. I will definitely make this anytime soon!

  • It is disgusting… his recipes do not work – I have heard about it from other people before. He is not a simple blogger – it is his profession … disgrace!

    The pie took much more to set close to 40-60 min as minimum…

  • Hi, this looks delicious! In Turkey we roll the “yufka” (dough) thinner. You can sprinkle some flour under and over the dough to keep it from sticking. This will make it much easier to work with. I’m also not sure if the onions would be properly cooked this way. Maybe sauteeing them before adding to the filling would be better.

  • I made these for dinner tonight. My partner was annoyed I didn’t order takeaway. He bloody loved the end result. They are delicious and well worth the make!! Thank you ❤️

  • Feta cheese is Greek. I am turkish but I love ancient Greece and ancient Greeks ate fetacheese 3000+ years ago we have borrowed a lot of Greek culture and mixed it with our own.

  • Find the link for written recipe in English in the description box above ��.
    Receta escrita en ESPAÑOL esta en el enlace en la caja de descripcion de arriba ��.

  • Wow this was amazing. I made this for my partner for his birthday �� and it was a huge hit!! I’ve never made crepes before. The filling was scrumptious! You are the best ��

  • Hey Beth! Could you please make a kitchen tour video? You always seem to have a lot of equipment and unique serving pieces so I’d just like to know how you store all of it!

  • In Bulgaria we have similar thing, we call it “banitza”. I think all the Balkan countries have different versions of pastry dishes with fillings but chefs don’t really know much about Balkan cuisine, except for some Greek and maybe Turkish dishes.

  • I will be making a crepe cake…now, after seeing your video, I must try this savory crepe as well. Your videos are always such a delight to watch. Thanks for sharing!

  • I am in love with this recipe, I have made crepes for ever! and this one sounds amazing..we usually stuff with ricotta and spinach and make a nice sauce but this one is also so tasty looking..I have both Italian and French background..and love crepes!!

  • Made them this morning. Ugh….burned fingertips from turning them. Do they need to be thicker so they don’t tear as easily? I will keep perfecting this though. Great recipe! Wish I could show you the picture.

  • Looks fantastic just one question if I don’t cook up all 6 squares right then, will the dough keep in the fridge? If so, how long? And same for the extra filling? Will it keep in the fridge? I’m only cooking for 1 person and altho I could probably eat all 6 gozleme in one day, I know I shouldn’t;-)

  • We make this in India, but with spinach and cottage cheese and the dough is made of whole wheat flour. Look up palak paneer parantha!

  • This is definitely and without doubt a fabulous spinach pie and I’d love to try it!!!! Congrats Jamie Oliver on this!! Yes it is Greek inspired….. but it cannot be called Greek “spanakopita” since that term refers to a traditional recipe with specific ingredients. Nevertheless there’s no reason not to enjoy both…. the traditional and the inspired version (smiiiiile!).

  • One of my favourite things to order at our local Greek restaurant. Never had faith in myself to bake with filo, can’t wait to make this at home now ��

  • I’ve got a question if anyone could help me out here! I’m from Melbourne and we get a lot of really good borek’s in our local markets (I’m assuming they’re Turkish). However, after doing my research, I found out that boreks are made with filo pastry. I’ve worked with filo before and I’m pretty sure they’re very flaky and crisp. However, the ‘borek’s’ I’ve had from these markets had more of a flatbread sort of outer layer. They seem to have been pan-fried (both flat sides are crips whilst the side and inside are still bready). However I’ve also had gozleme’s and they’re rather soft(like an Indian paratha). I’m just confused and I’m trying to find what was is that I buy at all these markets that say that they’re selling borek? Is there a special name for it? It defs cant be made from filo cause they were nothing like the filo related pastries I’ve had in the past! I’d be very appreciative if anyone who’s familiar with this cuisine could help a fellow foodie out here! Desperately want to remake them at home!

  • Τι έκτρωμα είναι αυτό Παναγία μου. Και η συνταγή χάλια φαίνεται. Δεν είναι μόνο το θέμα της δήθεν νεoτερικότητας αλλά τα τεχνικά λάθη. Η γέμιση μοιάζει ήδη “χωνεμένη” (μπιάξ) πριν τη τυλίξει σε αυτά τα χαρτιά Α4. Ποιο το νόημα να παρουσιάσεις συνταγή για πίτα χωρίς το φύλλο; Αν το πάρεις έτοιμο τι δείχνεις δηλαδή πως βράζεται το σπανάκι (που κανονικά δεν μπαίνει βρασμένο κιόλας);

  • I just made a modified version of this pie using leek and broccoli instead of spinach and it is TO DIE FOR!! Thank you for sharing this recipe ❤️

  • Fantastic facts and not words, in this way the language does not matter. Congratulations and thank you one of the best videos. Kind regards from Sweden Fernando
    Fantàstico hechos y no palabras, de esta manera no tiene importancia el idioma. Felicidades y gracias uno de los mejores vidéos. Saludos cariñosos desde Suecia Fernando

  • I just made the savory crepe to have with soft scrambled eggs and I added dried chives and holy moly it really hit the spot. Also, Beth please start a podcast!

  • In Turkey: the exact same recipe, but they egg wash it with a bit of milk, soda, and the olive oil, it’ll be more crunchy in this way, and regarding the pine nuts, don’t fry them in advance, let them roast with the filo, in this way, they don’t get over cooked or burned.

  • Question, is the plain yogurt necessary? I only have common falvored yogurt so I’m not sure if I should use it or just not add any yogurt.

  • Love this.. one question: when he says grease-proof paper, what does he mean? Is that the same as parchment paper? (Newbie here…)

  • Tried this recipe…worked great..EXCEPT recommend SKIPPING the cooking for 2 min. On the stove top BEFORE putting in the oven..just pop it straight in to the oven..and bake at 400 for a few minutes Etc..truly a delicious recipe..

  • Gözleme and Börek can be filled with whatever you like, here are some examples from my family: Spinach and Onion, Feta cheese and Sucuk, minced meat fried with onion and parsley, mashed potatos with onions and spicy paprika paste.

  • Beth, this recipe reminds me of the crepes that were served at the restaurant, The Magic Pan. It was a chain of restaurants back in the 1980’s. Yummy! ❤️❤️❤️

  • Gods Jamie!! What a brilliant dish! I know what we’re having for dinner tomorrow night!! Do you think a bit of caramelised onion would work ok??
