Two crust home made pie dough recipe (I didn’t have enough shortening for two crusts
so I made a crumb topping with I/2 stick of butter, homemade bread crumbs and
a cup of cheddar cheese).
7 hard cooked eggs
3 packages frozen chopped spinach, cooked and drained thoroughly OR
5 or 6 bags of fresh spinach - use a huge skillet - it really cooks down
2 large onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
! Tablespoon olive oil
Saute the onion and garlic in a large skillet until translucent
Season with salt, pepper, about 1 Tablespoon fresh or 1 teas.dried oregano,
1 or 2 Tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
Stir in 2 raw eggs
2 large handfuls of cheddar cheese (I LOVE extra sharp cheddar cheese so I use a lot.
Add the prepared drained spinach and stir thoroughly.
Preparing the pie:
Make a bed of spinach in the pie shell Arrange the cooked eggs on top - one in the center and the rest like spokes on a wheel.
Make sure that all the eggs are completely covered with the spinach.
Top with crust or with crumb mixture.
Bake for about an hour.
Wonderful warm - also great cold and delightful on a picnic!
