Spinach Pie (Spinatwähe)


Spinach Pie, ReducedWe had this tonight, and it was very good!  I’ve translated the recipe from a Swiss recipe for “Spinatwähe”.  If you like savoury pies, you’ll like this one!

Spinach Pie (Spinatwähe)

Butter for the pie tin
1 round pie dough, 270 gr. (for 1 pie, 26-28 cm Ø)
300 gr. (10.5 oz.) frozen, chopped spinach – thawed
2 dl. (6.5 oz.) cream
4 eggs
1 tsp. thyme
Salt & Pepper to taste
100 gr. (3.5 oz.) diced ham
Preheat the oven to 220°C (430°F)

Lay the rolled-out dough into a buttered round pie tin; purée the filling together and then pour into the pie dough and sprinkle the diced ham over the top (or stir it into the filling before pouring in, whichever you prefer).

On the lowest rack of the oven, bake at 220°C for 25-30 Minutes.


Serves 8

Baking time, ca. 30 minutes
