Rolling dough with my broken rolling pin, this is how #57 started out. It is do-able, but not ideal. I have had this baby since my single days of living alone in my Lakewood apartment. It was a housewarming gift from my mother, the pie queen. Sadly, it looks as if it is time for this beloved kitchen utensil to go into retirement.
After starting out 2013 with four sweet pies in a row, I was glad to finally welcome the first savory pie of the year. I found this recipe on Food Network’s website a few years back and was eager to try it out.
- I used the bacon instead of pancetta since I had it on hand. My family loves this particular pork product so I added 1 cup instead of the 1/4 cup in hopes that it would offset the huge amount of spinach that was in the pie. (The boys were less than impressed.)
- When baked, this became a really dense pie. I felt like I was getting two servings of vegetables in my one serving slice.
- Yum! I would definitely make this one again. I happen to serve it for dinner one evening, but I would definitely make it for lunch or breakfast.
