Can I Make Spanakopita From Scratch?

Oh yes you can! If you don’t mind spending some extra time in the kitchen that is.  Spanakopita is made with phillo dough, spinach, feta, cream cheese and ricotta.  So basically to make spanakopita from scratch, you stuff store-bought phillo dough with chopped spinach and a mixture of feta cheese, cream cheese and ricotta.  You can also use puff pastry instead of phillo dough.

Making the Spanakopita yourself can be a tad bit time consuming, so if you’re like me and prefer to get your meals (and snacks) done quickly, using the frozen spanakopita is probably your best bet :)

Do I Need to Defrost the Frozen Spanakopita?

If you’re air frying anything frozen for the first time, you might have this question pop up in your mind. Guess what? No! That’s actually the best part about the air fryer. All you’ll need to do is place the frozen Spanakopita in the air fryer basket directly as you get it out from the freezer, and air fry it! Easy right?

If you’re thawing it before you put it in the air fryer, remember that you’ll not need 10 minutes of cooking time to get it crisp. You’ll probably just need to get it out within 5 minutes, or you might risk burning the crispy pastry.

Can I Reheat the Spanakopita Leftovers?

Yes, you can do that too. If you’ve made a bit too much to get done with in a day, and have some leftovers you want to dig into the next day, you could do that too. Just remember to carefully store the leftovers in an airtight container and pop it in the refrigerator.

The next day, you’ll just need to pop them in your preheated air fryer for a couple of minutes until they become nice and crispy once again.
