Spinach Impossible Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by ImPat

I'm trying to get the DM to eat a larger variety of vegetables and I thought this one may appeal to her, from Super Food Ideas. HAVE NOT included cooling time of the spinach in the time frames.

I made this with a bunch of silver beet (swiss chard) from a generous friend's garden. It was a perfect way to use this 'gift' and so easy to bring together. I have two recommendations. First, it is hard to stir grated cheese and crumbled feta into wilted greens, so next time i would scatter the spinach/silver beet in base of the pie plate and then sprinkle over the cheeses. Also I used five smaller eggs, so decided to use a 10-inch (6-cup) pie plate. I wonder if the recipe, as written, would actually fit in a 4-cup plate. Will be making this again and hoping for another contribution of silver beet. This pie was really popular at home. Thanks for posting.
