Alex Mackay’s baked King Edward, spinach & feta pie recipe

Alex Mackay’s Baked King Edward, Spinach & Feta Pie Recipe

“This is the good King Edward’s twist on the Greek filo pastry pie Spanakopita. I love a playful recipe, my pie is nestled into the potato and I serve it in a pie dish but there is no pastry in sight. Bags of spinach vary greatly in size so any that you have leftover you could serve as a side salad or wilt with some garlic to serve with the pies.”
