Nutritional Information

In this recipe, a pie crust is filled with caramelized garlic, spinach and cheeses, then baked until golden and delicious!

Ingredients

  • Easy Pie Dough, see recipe
  • All-purpose flour, as needed for surface
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 heads of garlic, cloves peeled
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, grated (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 3/4 cup crème fraîche
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

Directions

  • 1. Preheat the Egg to 350° using indirect heat. Roll out 1 disk of dough on a lightly floured surface to a 14” round. Transfer to a 9”-diameter pie dish. Lift up edge and let dough slump down into dish. Trim, leaving about 1” overhang. Fold overhang under. Freeze 15 minutes. Line dough with parchment paper or foil, leaving some overhang. Fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake until crust is dry around edge, 15- 25 minutes. Let cool. Meanwhile, cook garlic in a medium saucepan of boiling salted water until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes; drain. Wipe saucepan dry and heat oil in pan over medium-high. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until cloves start to turn golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until garlic is tender, 10–12 minutes. Add maple syrup, rosemary, and thyme, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is syrupy and coats garlic, about 5 minutes. Scatter cheese over crust; top with spinach. Whisk crème fraîche, cream, and eggs in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Pour over spinach. Add garlic with any syrup. Bake until custard is set and golden brown in spots, 35–40 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
