Spinach pie

Spinach is in season at the moment. We've eaten lots of spinach this winter. We have grown some silverbeet in the garden and English spinach has been cheap to buy - so I've been putting it in curries, pasta bake, pasta sauce and savory muffins. We all loved this pie - Mr Fun has eaten the left-overs for the last few days!

1 bunch spinach, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large brown onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 cup grated tasty cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1 1/2 cups milk
a few slices of stale bread, food processed into crumbs

* Preheat the oven to 180 fan-forced.
* Grease a 23cm pie tray (or similar - I actually used a 24cm square silicone cake tray) and line with the bread crumbs.
* Heat the oil in a pan. Fry the onions and garlic until golden. Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Turn off the heat.
* In a bowl or large jug, whisk the eggs and flour together. Add the milk & whisk to combine.
* Combine flour/egg/milk mixture with the spinach/garlic/onion. Add the parsley and cheese and stir through. Pour into the tray on top of the bread crumbs.
* Cook for 35 mins, or until golden and set (if you inset a knife, it should come out clean).

This would be really yummy with bacon too!

Ha ha. We were just given (a lot of) home-grown spinach and I'm looking for easy ideas! Thanks. Looks great.
