Chef John's Spinach and Feta Pie

Recipe by  

"This is great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, either hot, warm, or cold! This reminds me of spanakopita, a Greek spinach pastry."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat butter in a large oven-safe skillet over high heat. Toss spinach in hot butter until wilted, about 30 seconds. Drain spinach well and squeeze it as dry as possible. Transfer to a cutting board and chop.
  3. Beat eggs in a bowl with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper until thoroughly combined.
  4. Place bacon in the same skillet used to cook spinach and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon has rendered its fat and is almost crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Use a paper towel held in a tongs to remove excess bacon grease. Reduce heat to medium; saute onion with bacon and a pinch of salt until onion is translucent, about 5 more minutes.
  5. Saute chopped spinach with bacon and onion until spinach is hot; pour in eggs. Use a wooden spoon to distribute spinach evenly throughout the eggs. Sprinkle feta cheese over mixture.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set, 10 to 15 minutes. Top may still be a little wet.
  7. Turn on oven's broiler. Broil pie until top is lightly golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

I made this for dinner tonight, and we all loved it! I did add one clove of chopped garlic the last 30 seconds after browning the onions and right before adding in the spinach. Baking time was accurate and it was perfect. I also put a dollop of Greek yogurt on top just before serving. Next time I make this I'm going to add some dried oregano with the egg mixture so it will have a Greek flavor. I plan on making this dish more often as it was so easy for a quick meal. Thanks Chef John, this is a keeper!

I have made this twice now.. It is a nice change from the quiche with cottage cheese that I make. It is firm and delicious, great warm or cold as leftovers from the fridge. The texture is wonderful. The feta cheese adds the perfect amount of saltiness and compliments the eggs and spinach without overpowering the favors.
