Ingredients700g frozen spinach (or fresh)
Oil, for frying
1 onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
200g grated cheese
Salt and white pepper
2 tsp sugar
2 sheets puff pastry
PreparationPreheat the oven to 180°C.
Defrost the spinach. If using fresh spinach, wash and cut into large chunks and boil in plain water for 5 minutes. Drain and squeeze all the liquid out of the spinach leaves.
In a large pan, fry the onion and garlic with a little oil until soft.
Add the spinach to the pan and mix well. Add the cheese, salt, pepper and sugar to season.
Crack 1 egg and add to the mix, stirring it through. Remove from the heat.
On a greased pie dish, lay out 1 sheet of puff pastry.
Fill with the spinach mix. Make 4 holes in the mix and crack an egg into each of the holes.
Cover the pie with another sheet of puff pastry, making sure you trim the edges neatly.
Cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
