Savory Spinach Pie

Savory Spinach Pie

This pie is super easy to make and is a great appetizer or breakfast meal.  I brought these to a recent party where I wanted to bring something homemade but also easy to make.  I've since made them several more times to eat as breakfast during the week.  They are filling and certainly better than anything you can grab on the go.  The best part is that the ingredients can be modified as needed to make it unique.  (Just stick to the basic recipe for the dough and experiment from there.)  I don't always have time to make something in the morning so having these in the fridge ready to just heat up really makes my morning meal planning super easy.
