Directions:
Saute onions and garlic in butter. Stir in spinach, that has been thawed and squeezed dry. Line a 10" springform pan with pastrythat has been rolled to 1/8", making sure it overlaps the sides. Layer 1/2 the ham, 1/2 the cheese, 1/2 the red pepper, 1/2 the spinach mixture into the pie shell. Pour in 1/2 the beaten eggs. Repeat all layers. Pan will be full. Cover with pastry and pinch the edges to seal. Trim excess pastry and slash the top to allow steam to escape. Brush top crust with beaten egg. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 45 minutes. If the crust becomes too brown, cover lightly (don't seal) with foil. Cool the pie for 15 minutes and remove spring form pan. Makes 10 servings.Impressive, easy to make and tastes terrific. Great for lunch, brunch or appetizer.
