This easy SPINACH PIE brings back fond memories. For every birthday, our mom would make us whatever meal we chose! Mom has lots of special ‘mom recipes’ and we all have our favorites. This is one of mine. This Spinach Pie is SO GOOD.
It is rich, hearty, filling and full of flavor. Definitely can take the category of comfort food! Made in a pie crust, it makes a wonderful savory breakfast, brunch or lunch idea!
It now has become one of my husband’s top favorites as well. 🙂
Our easy and delicious Spinach Pie is packed with spinach, sausage, cottage cheese, garlic, and lots of cheese.
Mix all the ingredients together and pile them into a crust. Bake it and dinner is served!
My favorite pie crust is our OLIVE OIL PIE CRUST. It doesn’t need any chill time, and without having butter or shortening to cut in, it’s a much quicker process than most pie crusts. The olive oil makes a flaky and crispy crust that you have just got to try!!
While I have all these ingredients on hand, I like to mix up some of these Spinach & Sausage Egg Cups real quick for a few days of breakfast! Time saving prep is a big thing at my house…. this is another one of those ways to get something else done while working on dinner and having the satisfaction of keeping your family well cared for!

Love this recipe! It’s my ‘go to’ for lunch with friends or a quick week night dinner. It’s perfect paired with a bowl of soup or salad.

Can you use the olive oil crust with chocolate pie or fruit pies, or is it too heavy and non sweet? Thank you!
Absolutely! I use it for all my pies. 🙂
