Spinach Beef Pie

I found this recipe about 15 years ago, and it's still one I turn to often. It's flavorful and pretty.—Meg Stankiewicz, Garfield Heights, Ohio

  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 7 tablespoons cold butter
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and diced


  • In a large bowl, combine flour and oats; cut in the butter until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Roll out dough to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer to plate; trim and flute edges.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion, green pepper and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the ketchup and seasonings. Fold in the spinach; cool slightly. Stir in the eggs and 1 cup cheese until combined; spoon into crust.
  • Bake until the center is set, 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle tomato and remaining cheese around edge of pie. Bake until cheese is melted, 5-10 minutes longer. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

    Quick and easy! Well written. Can easily sub in additional ingredients to suit your taste. For a single person this can easily be 4 dinners or lunches when accompanied by fresh fruit or a nice salad.

    This dish is EXCELLENT! I'm not a fan usually of making homemade pie crust, but this went so smoothly I will definitely prepare it again.
