Recipe Notes

  • Be sure to squeeze all of the water out of the spinach. If you don't, you'll have soggy rolls.
  • Garlic lovers could add some chopped fresh garlic to the filling.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the spinach filling, put the chopped spinach into a mixing bowl, Sprinkle with salt. Mix together and set aside.
  2. Add the chopped parsley, dill, green onions and mint leaves to a mixing bowl.
  3. Blot the spinach on a clean kitchen cloth or paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
  4. Add the spinach to the herbs along with the egg, feta and oregano.
  5. Stir well to combine.
  6. To make the rolls, open the thawed phyllo dough and remove half of the dough. With the dough unrolled, cut the stack in half. Keep the unused dough from getting dry by covering with a damp kitchen cloth. Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees F for 3 minutes. Use 2 to 3 slices of phyllo, spraying oil or brushing butter on each piece before stacking the next. Then place about 2 tablespoons of filling and start rolling the dough, folding over the sides as you go. Spray or brush the roll with butter, sprinkle with bagel seasoning and set in your air fryer. Continue the process until the filling is gone.
  7. Bake in the air fryer for 15 minutes on 350 degrees F turning them over halfway through. The rolls will be golden brown. Cool on a wire rack while you finish cooking all the rolls. Don't cover them or stack them on each other or they will lose their crispy edges. Serve warm or at room temperature and enjoy!
