Spinach Pie

I’ve actually been making this recipe for spinach pie since I was a teen.  It comes from my friend Debbie and her mom.  I have no idea if her family still enjoys it but it’s definitely a favorite in my house.  My plan was to go the summer without making it because I try to keep the oven off as much as possible.  That and I figured I’d wait until my son gets home from his travels of Europe since it’s a favorite of his.  But I couldn’t wait that long.

This is not a recipe for quiche or spanakopita.  This recipe is a toss all ingredients into a bowl, mix together and toss it into a baking dish kind of recipe.  At this point I barely measure the ingredients and often switch them out.  I have used a variety of chopped vegetables and cheeses but the basic recipe is still my favorite.

I actually couldn’t find my hand written recipe book and worried that I would forget an ingredient.  I googled spinach pie and Bisquick and found so many recipes.  Many were similar but not the same.  The proportions of the ingredients didn’t sound right to me, as if it would be too dry.  A few had cottage cheese which just sounded awful to me but must taste good to someone.  I’m happy to say my recipe book was found but for my own sake I need to get this recipe online so I don’t lose it again.

This recipe goes into a 7″x 11″ pan nicely.  If you want to use a 9″ x 13″ pan use add another 1/2 recipe and it will be fine.  When I do that I often add chopped mushrooms or a box of frozen chopped broccoli instead of more spinach.  I also love shredded carrot in this but some of my family members disagree.  For the cheese I often add some feta and at times I’ve used different types of cheddar but the Italian cheeses are my favorite.

Ingredients

2 10 oz boxes of spinach thawed and drained of all water

8 oz mozzarella in either tiny cubes or shredded

1 cup Bisquick (I use the lower fat version)

1 chopped onion

4 eggs or 1 cup of egg substitute

1/2 cup of parmesan cheese

1/2 cup oil (I use canola)

Salt, pepper, parsley, and italian seasoning to your taste

Directions

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well blended, pour into a greased 7″x 11″ pan and bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes until it is well set and is just starting to brown at the edges.

This is a great on the go type of meal.  I often take the leftovers to work and pop it in the microwave for just a minute.  Enjoy!
