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 you family have recipe that even when you are 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.
And, this recipe is super, super easy! I mean, it’s not even really a recipe. I have no idea where my mom got the recipe (there has to be one, she doesn’t not use recipes!), but it was ‘on the regular’ in my house growing up. Now that we are adults, we still request this!
Spinach pie works well for a breakfast, an easy mason jar lunch, or a side dish to dinner; Pairing with grilled chicken or steak perfectly. Click To Tweet

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!
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!
- 2 boxes frozen, chopped spinach
- 1, 16 ounce container of cottage cheese
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Preheat oven to 375˚
- Squeeze water from thawed chopped spinach.
- In large mixing bowl, combine spinach, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, eggs, and salt & pepper.
- Pour into baking dish (8x8 works well!) and bake 30 minutes at 375˚, or until set in the center and golden brown on top.
