      Makes: 30 servings or 5 logs, 6 servings each

      1 egg, beaten
      1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained
      1 cup ATHENOS Traditional Crumbled Feta Cheese
      1 tub (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Garden Vegetable 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese
      4 green onions, finely chopped
      15 sheets frozen phyllo (14×9 inch), thawed
      1/3 cup butter, melted

      MIX first 5 ingredients until well blended; set aside. Brush 1 phyllo sheet lightly with butter; top with 2 more phyllo sheets, lightly brushing each layer with some of the remaining butter. Place remaining phyllo between sheets of plastic wrap; set aside.

      SPREAD 1/5 of the spinach mixture along 1 short side of phyllo stack; fold in both long sides then roll up, starting at 1 of the short sides to make log. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets and spinach mixture to make 4 more logs. Brush with remaining butter.

      Make small cuts in tops of logs at 1-inch intervals. Place in large freezer-weight resealable plastic bags or wrap tightly in plastic wrap.

      FREEZE up to 3 months. When ready to bake, remove desired number of logs from freezer. Refrigerate, tightly wrapped, several hours or overnight until thawed.

      Place on baking sheet. Bake in 375°F-oven for 25 min. or until golden brown.

      Cool on baking sheet 5 min.; transfer to cutting board. Use serrated knife to cut each log into 6 slices.

      Storage Know-How: Leftover phyllo sheets can be wrapped tightly and refrozen.

      How to Prepare with 18×14-inch Phyllo Sheets: Use a total of 9 phyllo sheets, spreading 1/3 of the filling on each stack of 3 sheets and rolling up each stack to make a total of 3 logs. Freeze and bake as directed. Cut each log into 10 slices to serve.

      Variation: Omit butter. Spray phyllo sheets with cooking spay instead of brushing with the melted butter.
