Spinach Cheese and Egg Pies

Spinach Cheese and Egg Pies

Posted 2018-04-07 by finyfollow

These are free form pies, and I made the dough myself instead of using a bought one.

The baked egg added extra and a slightly different taste to spinach and cheese.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
1 packet frozen spinach, thawed
50 g feta
120 g ricotta, drained
2 spring onions, sliced
A bit of dill
1½ cups flour
Half a packet of dried yeast -3.5 g
½ tbsp sugar
2 eggs

Method
  • Squeeze all the liquid out of the spinach, and put in a bowl.

  • Add the feta, ricotta, spring onion, and dill, and stir to mix.


  • Preheat the oven to 210°/190º fan forced, and line a baking tray with baking paper.

  • Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and some salt in another bowl. Make a well in the centre, and add ½ cup of cold water.

  • Mix this until it is all combined, and it turns into a soft dough.

  • Put the dough on a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until it is a smooth ball.


  • Divide the dough into two portions.

  • Roll out the dough to make an oval shape about 25 cm long.

  • Leave a border around the edge, and put half of the spinach mixture down the centre.


  • Fold up the sides of the dough and pinch the edges together to seal them, at the same time leaving a large opening down the centre (for the egg).


  • Make an indent in the centre of this filling, and crack an egg into each.


  • Spray them with some oil, and bake for about 20 minutes or until the egg is set.

  • I served this with my [link http://recipeyum.com.au/loaded-baked-potato-and-cauliflower-mash-or-soup/ potato and cauliflower mash], however it would also go well with a salad.
