Let's Make It
For the dough
Mix the flour with the egg yolks, working the mixture with a fork until blended, add the warm milk with melted butter, work until a smooth elastic dough forms, knead 8-10 minutes with the mixer or 20 minutes by hand. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour, it can be overnight.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
For the filling
In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the oil and brown the onion for 5 minutes. Add the green onions or scallions and cook 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. In a large bowl mix the onion and chives together with the well-drained spinach. Add the Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, nutmeg and pepper. Beat eggs until blended (30 seconds) and add to spinach mixture, stir well and add the feta cheese. Mix.
On floured counter, roll the dough until very thin, you should be able to see through and be 15 "x 21". Move the dough on top of a tea towel and let stand 5 minutes to dry a little, brush with the vegetable oil. Spread the filling. Leaving 1" along the long side (21"). Roll up starting from the opposite long side, you want the strudel to be longer than fatter. Carefully place on an oiled baking sheet, give it a U shape, and brush with beaten egg.
Bake 40-45 minutes until golden and crisp. Allow to cool in the baking sheet on wire rack and cut it warm. You can serve it cold or warm.
