This spanakopita would make a pretty centerpiece for a festive table. A real treat with local spinach.
Preheat oven to 350. Heat oil in the largest skillet you have. Add onion and cook until softened. Add garlic and cook 1 more minute. Gradually add spinach and cook until wilted. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in egg, herbs, feta, salt and pepper.
Lay 1 sheet phyllo on a parchment-lined baking sheet (to keep the remaining sheets moist, cover with a damp dish towel). Brush sheet with butter. Repeat 2 more times for a total of 6 layers. Spread spinach mixture on center, including liquid in bottom of bowl. Top with 3 more buttered sheets. Roll sides in toward the center, forming a pretty crust that curves around the spinach (dab with more melted butter if necessary to keep the edges tightly rolled). Butter 4 more sheets and crumble over top. Bake until dark golden, about 40 minutes.
