Directions:
Preheat ovet to 375. Heat oil over med-high heat in small skillet. Add onion; cook and stir until translucent. Beat eggs in large bowl; stir in onion, feta cheese, spinach, parsley and oregano. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.

Remove phyllo from package; unroll and place on large sheet of waxed paper. Fold phyllo crosswise into thirds. Use scissors to cut along folds into thirds. Cover phyllo with large sheet of plastic wrap and damp clean kitchen towel. Lay one strip of phyllo at a time on flat surface and brush with melted butter. Fold strip in half lengthwise; brush with butter again. Place rounded teaspoonful of spinach filling on one end of strip; fold over one corner to make triangle. Continue folding end to end as you would fold a flag, keeping edges straight. Brush top with butter. Repeat process until all filling is used.

Place triangle in a single layer, seam-side down, on baking pan. Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.

Although Melissa doesn't like spinach, she enjoys making this for others (especially company). These are SO worth the time it takes to prepare. You will never want frozen appetizers again.
