1 pound (1/2 kg) phylo dough
1 ½ pound (750 gr) feta cheese
A few leaves of fresh mint
4 eggs
1 ½ cups soda water
½ cup olive oil and ¼ cup melted butter

You will need a 9X13 pyrex pan. First brush the pan with melted butter. On a clean surface lay out one sheet of phylo dough. Sprinkle about ¼ cup of feta cheese all over the surface of the dough. Gather the dough together from the furthest end in a pleated fashion for the end of the dough to meet the closest end to you. Place in the short side of a heavy baking pan. Continue until you have about 15-17 pleated pieces. In a large mixing bowl beat the eggs and add the oil and soda water. Pour over the phylo dough and bake in a 350 F or 180 C preheated oven for 45 – 60 minutes or until the pie is light golden color. You allow it to sit for a 10 minutes and then slice it in about 15 pieces.
