Ham and Spinach Pie


This is a delicious Pie that can be served for brunch or supper. The colorful layers let you see all the goodness that goes into this pie. Serve with a fresh Fruit or green Salad.

  • enough pie crust for a two crust pie, homemade or store bought
  • 6 slices of your favorite deli ham, sliced thinly, or 2 cups of diced ham
  • 2 cups of low fat cheese, you can use whatever cheese you have on hand, try Swiss, Cheddar, Mozzarella, what ever you prefer
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup each of a red and green pepper for color
  • 4 cups of fresh spinach*
  • 4 eggs well beaten
  1. Start with a unbaked pie shell and layer in the ham and cheese
  2. Saute the onion, garlic and peppers til softened
  3. Add the fresh spinach and cook long enough until the spinach wilts down, this only takes a few minutes.
  4. Layer that onion and spinach mixture on the ham and cheese
  5. Pour over 4 beaten eggs
  6. Top with the second layer of pastry and brush the top with a bit of reserved egg to give it a deep color when baked.
  7. Bake at 425 for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

*note- you can use frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

  2. I can remember having a similar pie in a restaurant when my family was on vacation. I thought I would try to make my own version, but just never had the courage to try with out a recipe. Now I have the recipe and will for sure try to make this. For me how ever it will be store bought pie crust.

  4. Oh Char - this is amazing. I'm sure this is much like one I used to make and it is so delicious. I'll have to make it again soon.

  5. Interesting, it is a quiche only with a top crust and everything layered instead of mixed together. It has to be just as good! Thanks again!
