We all need a cheat in the kitchen!
Sometimes time is not on my side so pastry cases and spinach in the freezer save me with this pie, the chooks help out with the eggs.
Dare I say, it also gets a good dose of greens into the boys with no complaints! It also transports well so large slices are ideal for lunch boxes.
Serves 4-6. I tend to make two at a time to give me the lunch box leftovers.
1 frozen savoury pie case
225g frozen chopped spinach
8-10 cherry tomatoes, halved
freshly grated nutmeg
salt and pepper
10g Parmesan, finely grated
Blind bake the pastry case as per instructions.
Defrost the spinach and squeeze out all of the excess water, set aside.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs and cream, grate in a little nutmeg and season well.
Add the spinach to the egg mix and stir well.
Once the case has pre baked, remove from the oven and fill with the egg and spinach.
Top with the halved tomatoes, cut side up and sprinkle with cheese.
Return to the oven and bake until the centre of the pie has only just set, it can still have a bit of a wobble!
Allow to sit for 10mins before cutting.
