Greek Egg, Feta, and Herb Tart (Alevropita) . . .

This savory egg tart is nicknamed "lazy woman's pie" for how easy it is to make. In Aglaia Kremezi's version a cheese and egg filling is layered with butter-basted phyllo.

2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted, plus more
4 sheets phyllo dough
1½ cups milk
5 eggs
1 lb. ricotta, drained
12 oz. crumbled feta
1 tbsp. finely chopped oregano
2 tsp. finely chopped thyme
½ tsp. crushed red chile flakes

Heat oven to 425°. Grease a baking sheet with butter. Lay 2 sheets phyllo, overlapping slightly, on baking sheet; brush with some melted butter. Whisk milk and eggs in a bowl. Stir ricotta, feta, oregano, thyme, and chile flakes in another bowl. Pour half the egg mixture over phyllo; dot with half the cheese mixture. Repeat, layering remaining phyllo, butter, egg mixture, and cheese mixture; bake until bottom is golden and filling is just set, about 35 minutes. Heat oven broiler. Broil until golden and crisp, 1–2 minutes.
