Keto Spinach Pie is a low carb, a keto-friendly recipe is filled with protein-packed cottage cheese and eggs, and protein-rich eggs!

Spinach pie is a low carb side dish that your family will request over and over!

Keto Spinach Pie was a staple in our home growing up. It’s how our mom got us to eat spinach — and we LOVED it.

What’s not to love about cheese on cheese with spinach?!

Does your family have a recipe that even when you have grown adults you request your mom to make??!

For my family that’s tuna noodle casserole, cheese and pasta in a pot, pimento macaroni and cheese, and spinach pie. 

Spinach pie is an easy side dish great for any potluck dinner -- even better that it's a low carb side dish recipe!


This quick and easy low carb recipe idea is filled with thawed frozen chopped spinach, eggs, cottage cheese, and cheddar cheese.

You can make it in muffin cups, freezing for a quick morning breakfast for later.

Serve it for brunch on the weekends.

Or, serve it as a side dish to any meal prep grilled chicken recipe idea.

You’ll want to thaw out two boxes of frozen chopped spinach. Depending on the brand, they’re 9-10 ounces.

Do yourself a favor and buy the frozen kind. There is no need to purchase fresh spinach and wilt it down…

Thaw the boxes out (this is usually in the microwave for me!) and then use these steps to get the water out of it:

  1. Place thawed spinach into a clean kitchen towel, do this near your sink! 
  2. Pull the corners of the spinach up
  3. Squeeze all the water you can out, over the sink.

Plop the spinach into a large mixing bowl.

Plop one 16 ounce container of cottage cheese into the bowl. 

Grate 2 cups of cheddar cheese into the bowl.

Crack 6 eggs into a bowl and whisk until combined.

Pour these into the big bowl and begin stirring everything together.

Grind some black pepper into the mix and sprinkle in some salt.

Bake at 375˚ for about 30 minutes.



Spinach pie is a delicious keto recipe idea that will have your family begging for more

I remember my mom taking this over and over to people who had moved, had a baby, someone died, etc. This is her go-to dish!

This low carb side dish recipe, Spinach Pie, is a hit with everyone in the family!

Depending on your family, you can adjust the recipe. My older brother begs for more cheese. I beg for more spinach. I don’t like eggs — so, I use as few as possible! 

Other keto spinach pie makers have substituted cottage cheese for cream cheese, added mushrooms or onions into it. Others have added all kinds of veggies to use up with they have in their fridge! Some people have used 12 eggs so the recipes will bake in a 9×13 baking dish, and you can serve twice as many.

  1. I have never had a spinach pie, but I think I would love it. Your recipe looks so good! Stopping by from the #HomeMattersParty linky.

    1. I just used a calculation app, and it says 9.6 carbs. But, that seems a little high for how many low low carb items are in the recipe. 😉

    1. You would need a probably 20 ounces, cooked. Fresh spinach cooks down to 1/10th of it’s size. So, if you bought four of the big tubs from the produce section, that should cover it.

  2. I was thinking you might could add crumbled browned cooked sausage maybe make it a meal?

  3. Just took it out of the oven and had to taste it. This is very salty and peppery and I didn’t even use the full tsp. Perhaps the instructions should say “season to taste” because not everyone likes salty food. Otherwise, it was good.

    1. Thanks for the comment! Everyone’s salt/pepper levels are different. As with any recipe, it’s always better to err on your side of judgment than not!

  4. I made 3 small quiches. Absolutely delicious and literally 5 minutes prep time! Next time I’m adding a few sliced cherry tomatoes because this is almost like famous tomato pie in the south without the crust. This is a keeper!
