Mini Spinach Pies

Think Spinach Pie without the crust... savory, packed with nutrients and delicious

Perfect appetizer or snack!

Several years ago a friend developed this recipe for us because my son missed eating traditional spinach pies after being diagnosed celiac. These are essentially the spinach pie filling baked in mini muffin tins, and it’s AMAZING!

Delicious & packed with nutrients, they make a great snack or appetizer. I always serve them on holidays because they are fan favorites, and they freeze well so I make them a week ahead when hosting an event.
