Spinach Pie

If you like spanakopita, you’ll love this spinach pie.  My Grandma Boden used to make a spinach pie (it didn’t have the cheeses in it), and I loved it, and I really love this one too.


  • 1 rolled 9 inch pie crust, room temperature
  • Olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 lbs. frozen spinach, defrosted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 c. small curd cottage cheese
  • 6 oz. feta, crumbled
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. Spray pie plate with cooking spray and unroll pie crust and place in pie plate.
  3. Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat; add onions and cook until they turn translucent and begin to caramelize.
  4. Add the spinach, and cook for 5 minutes.  Drain spinach and onions well.
  5. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, and then add remaining ingredients and add the spinach and onions.
  6. Pour the mixture into the crust and bake for 90 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.
