Tiropita Savory Cheese Pie Recipe

Today  I’m out on the road, and I’m turning the cooking over to a great cook and wonderful blogger, Nikki from Chef in Training. I’ll be back next week. In the mean time, show her some love in the comments here. And, if you have a recipe you’d like to see here on Simple Plate,  simply submit it with our Recipe Submission form. Don’t forget your images!  I fell in love with triopitas back in my home town as a young woman. Our Greek community had a fesitval every year and taste testing was always a big treat!  Enjoy! Thanks Nikki!

Hello Simple Plate fans! I am Nikki from Chef in Training and I am SO excited to be here with you today to share one of my family’s favorite recipes! Debbie is amazing and has become a great friend of mine. She is an incredible cook, designer, coder, photographer, writer and friend and I am extremely honored to be here today. I just adore her blog!

Like I said before, my name is Nikki and I am the face behind Chef in Training. I Love to cook, bake, and be in the kitchen. It is such a stress reliever for me..until I think about the dishes :) I am married to the love of my life and have 2 beautiful kids. Food has always been a big part of my life. I am quite the mix when it comes to my ethnicity. My mom is a blond-haired blue-eyed girl who was born and raised in California. My dad is half Greek and half Hispanic. He was born in Germany, spent his childhood in Greece with his mom, and moved to Texas to live with his dad for high school. He and my mom met at a Mexican Restaurant in California that they both worked at while my dad was going to college. My mom was introduced to so much culture when she met my dad, and with all that fun culture comes some GREAT food! This is a recipe I grew up with in my home and love. My grandma still lives in Athens, Greece and I have flown out with my family a few times to visit her. The food there is absolutely incredible! Tiropita are one of my personal favorite Greek foods because they are jam-packed with delicious flavor. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does!

Here are the step by step  pictures for assembly! Couldn’t be easier!

    Sorry, I do have to make this correction: they are called tiropita (plural is tiropites) not triopita. “Tiri” is cheese and “pita” is pie.

      and correct you are.. I went with the spelling I was given in the recipe.. but thanks for being a spelling shark!
