Just made this for dinner it was great! I added only 1 1/2 cups milk because of other comments and cooked it about 40 minutes. It turned out excellent! Thank you for a quick dinner! Read More

A good flavor but a little "eggy" in texture. Could improve I think by using half-and-half instead of milk. Also was watery I think from the fresh spinach cooking (although it was quite dry when I added it). Do not top with the cheese till the last ten minutes. It browned too much! A nice recipe if I do some work on it next time. Read More

This dish has a fabulous flavor! However it was very runny. Next time I'll use less milk and perhaps prethicken it with some flour. Read More

I used colby-jack cheese and lightly sauteed the onion and garlic. I did not scald the milk. This pie was delicious and easy. Will make this again! A frozen deep-dish pie crust and ready-cooked bacon crumbles would be great time savers. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Read More

Did some minor adjustments and was enough for 2 pies. Good stuff! Next time I might fry the onions before adding to mixture. Read More

I had the same problem as many other reviewers, in that the filling was very soupy. I think that I think it may be the quantity of spinach. Should it be 3 cups of spinach that is chopped, NOT 3 cups of chopped spinach? The additional spinach moisture would account for the watery result. The flavor is great, but I doubt I will try again.
