Yield: 8 servings
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 tablespoon butter
2 boxes frozen chopped spinach, 10 ounces each

2 Silly Zak’s Gluten-Free Pie Crusts
Preheat oven to 375°.
Make the filling:
Saute chopped onion in butter. Thaw spinach and place on a clean dish towel. Wrap the towel around the spinach and squeeze out all the excess liquid. Combine spinach, cheeses, eggs, onion, bacon, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
Place spinach and cheese mixture into a pie crust. Place second pie crust on top, and pinch pie crusts together around the edges.
Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes. Let stand for five minutes before serving.
- Cover edges of pie crust with a strip of foil for the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent excess browning.
- Try switching up the cheeses or using ham instead of bacon. Don’t be afraid to use whatever you have on hand.
With the convenience of frozen spinach and prepared crusts, spinach pie is a no-brainer and will be the talk of the table. Keeping several of these crusts on hand simplifies mealtime.
