Spinach Pie

This recipe is very versatile. It would be great for a brunch, lunch, main dish or as a side dish. You could also really change it up by adding different ingredients like bacon, onions, different types of cheese, etc. I made it for a barbecue the other day and everyone loved it.

4 eggs
2 packages of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeeze out the excess water
2 garlic cloves, squeezed through a garlic press
12 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, I used a white cheddar
1 refrigerated pie crust
parmesan cheese
pinch of nutmeg
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Unroll the pie crust and place in a pie place. Make the edges wavy using your fingers, or you could use a fork to make little tines marks.

In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, spinach, garlic, cheddar cheese, nutmeg, and salt and pepper until well combined. Pour into pie crust and smooth the top. Sprinkle evenly with a little grated parmesan reggiano cheese.

Bake for 45 minutes or until the crust and parmesan cheese are golden brown. Let cool a bit and enjoy!
