Cook Time: 1 HOUR
In a large pan, saute the onions and spinach. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add the parsley, dill, feta, beaten eggs, flour, salt and pepper. Stir gently to combine.
Place a sheet of phyllo dough on your work surface. Brush it generously with your butter and oil mixture. Lay your spinach filling in a straight line along the edge of your phyllo sheet.
Carefully roll up the phyllo and spinach into a log. Spiral the log into your baking pan.
Brush the top of the spanakopita spiral with some more of the butter and oil mixture. Optional: Sprinkle sesame seeds for an extra crunch.
Bake at 375°F (190°C) until it turns golden brown.
