Yummy, I just made this for the first time!!
I only used 3 eggs, and I added some ham; it was great!

Spinach pie...try with some fresh-grated nutmeg...Yum!

Nutmeg and spinach are a wonderful combo. I think it might be a nice tweak on this yummy recipe too. Nutmeg is one of the thermogenic spices that kicks up the metabolism, if you need more reason than pure good taste and fragrance to grate some fresh nutmeg into any dish.

Janine’s Spinach Pie
Blend together:
3 or 4 eggs
3 ounces softened cream cheese
1/2 tsp salt

Add and mix well
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (other cheeses work nicely also)
1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1/4 cup chopped scallion (green onion)
2 Tbsp. dried or 4 Tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
(I also add garlic powder to taste)

Pour into buttered casserole (or unbaked pie shell). Top with
Thin slices of fresh tomato and
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (spread evenly yet generously on top and Spray the parm. cheese with pam cooking spray - this will make a yummy crispy coating on top of the pie)
Bake at 450° for about 35 minutes. (I never cook it this long..usually I do for about 25 minutes or so.)

Any chance that any one has tried this using brocolli, instead of spinach? Will that work? I love just about all veggies, but I just can't do spinach! I know some of you said it doesn't taste like spinach in this recipe, but I just can't do it.

Thanks so much!

Hmmm, I bet broccoli WOULD taste really good like that!
If you try it, let us know.

I bought some frozen spinach, when I went to the grocery store, today...had everything else. I'm going to make this, tomorrow night. It sounds great!

Made this tonight, added a little more cheese because I used the 16 oz. pkg of spinach. The extra cheese I used was mozzarella. The rest of the recipe was the original and it was yummy. Probably a little too much spinach, but it was good anyway. Next time I will use the 10 oz. pkg.

I totally forgot to try the nutmeg

DH has a roast in the oven, so I whipped-up this recipe, and just put it in the oven, next to the roast. It looks so yummy!

Instead of salt and garlic, I just used McCormick Grinders Sea Salt & Garlic...same measurements as the salt. We had some chopped tomatoes leftover from Tacos, last night, so I just sprinkled those on the top, with the parmesan cheese and butter flavored pan spray. OH...and I used leftover chopped red onions, instead of scallions.

That's the beauty of being married to a chef. I have him do all of my prep-work...he chops up veggies (ESPECIALLY THE ONIONS), and we put them in baggies, in the fridge.

This is definitely "a keeper". I also wished I had doubled the recipe. I'll know, next time.

I tried this with a brocolli and cauli mix, minus the sliced tomatoes. Daughter hates tomatoes. Anyway, it was VERY VERY good!!!!! I will double it the next time too. I only wish I had listened to you all and doubled it this time!

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!

[COLOR="Magenta"]Oh, I only cooked it for 30 minutes, and it was perfect...

Oh Bella, I bet that will be good.. I'm not a sausage fan, but my family is, so I'll have to make one like that, for them. Or...... I can just send them to your house!

Tryinghardtolose, good to know you mixed broc. and cauli. I was wondering if that would work!

I want to try different cheeses too...[/COLOR]

This sounds great! Thanks for posting all the pics and recipe tweaks. I like fresh spinach...how about fresh sauteed spinach? Think it would work okay with the other ingredients?

TIA

Sweet ~ sauteed spinach should work just fine. Maybe even saute garlic with it.

Remember to compensate for how spinach changes bulk when it wilts down to barely nothing.

Fresh spinach will work fine. Ounce for ounce the same as frozen. Just chop it up before you sautee it and then squeeze out the liquid.

I wondered about the amount when using fresh. So for a 10 oz pkg of frozen, I would replace with 10 oz of fresh? I love that as I am trying to eat foods in their most natural state. Thanks for the tip...

Yeah. I did an experiment one time because I thought for SURE there was a whole lot more than 10oz of spinach in 10oz of frozen spinach. My hypothesis was wrong!
