Bourekas w/Spinach and Cheese (D)
Source: Unknown
Yield: 1 dozen

4 medium baking potatoes
3 eggs
2 20-ounce bunches spinach
2 teaspoons baking soda
A dash of salt
3 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups feta cheese
1 package puff pastry dough
Egg yolk

Boil potatoes until soft but not soggy. Mash potatoes well. Let cool. Beat in 3 eggs into the potatoes. Mixture should be smooth. Let rest.

Chop and fast fry spinach until soft. In a large bowl stir together potato mixture with spinach, baking soda, salt, and all three cheeses.

Lay out puff pastry. Cut 8" squares. Place 1/3 cup of potato, spinach and cheese mixture into the middle of puff pastry square. Place square in a diamond shape. Take one corner of the puff pastry square and fold over the mixture to the other corner. Take a knife and roll up the edges of the pastry dough so it forms a fluted ridge preventing the cheese mixture from leaking out.

Brush egg yolk on top. Put pastry in oven at 375°F until golden brown.
