Frozen Food Review: Wellsley Farms Spanakopita

Details: Official site is

Score: 6.5/10

This is pretty good, pretty average spanakopita, which is exactly what you want when you buy a frozen box of these from BJ’s. However, the big issue I have with this is that no matter how many times I made this, the filling always burst out of the casing.

I used a conventional oven, baked it for the recommended time and temperature, and still it busts out the casing. I lowered the temperature, lowered the baking time, and still, bursted casing. I eventually got the cooking time and temperature low enough so that it wouldn’t do so, but at that point, we start raising issues of undercooked food.

In any case, if you follow the instructions on the box, you will most likely get an ugly appetizer. Which matters because you can’t serve such nasty looking stuff to guests. Presentation is like 90% of serving food to others.

So, if you are eating these by yourself, then they taste fine despite their looks. If you are serving these to others, avoid buying these because they will look ugly.
