Prep in Advance
You can make this ahead the day before. Prepare everything and assemble it in your pie dish. Cover and store in the fridge.
1 bunch of spinach = 10 oz, including stems and about 6.75 oz stems removed. 4 (packed) cups of just the leaves.
Frozen: 10 oz frozen = 1 bunch
Other Veggies: Use any others you'd like!
Cheese: You can substitute your favorite, but we prefer the combination of spinach and feta.
Kosher Salt: Use 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of table salt for the 1 teaspoon of kosher salt.
Fridge: Store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
Freezing: Bake and then let completely cool before freezing. Freeze either whole (use an aluminum freezer-friendly pie dish) or in slices.
