Spinach Pie with Walnuts
1 tbsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic, minced
pepper to taste
2 10oz packages of frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (or pinenuts if you like)
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs (I use approved bread and just make crumbs)
1 tsp dried dill
4 eggs, beaten
1 pie crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1) Make the filling: In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and salt and pepper and cook until garlic is tender, 1 to 2 minutes.
2) Transfer mixture to a large bowl; stir in spinach, pine nuts, feta, Parmesan, breadcrumbs and dill. Fold in eggs until combined.
3) Place the mixture into a deep-dish pie plate that is covered by your pie crust; press firmly to flatten.
4) Bake until heated through and topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
VERDICT: this was yummy...next time I may add in some mozzarella cheese but the kids like it and it's similar to the 4 cheese spinach pizza I make that the kids like. This can be made the night before and baked when you get home, it's fairly easy to make...I actually skipped the 1st step (left out the onions and oil this time).
