Spring Pie (By Jamie Oliver)

This no fuss, easy and tasty pie is a great option for a lunch after a nice spring walk.

Serves 6 Kiwis | Preparation Time: 30 mins | Cook time: 30-40 mins


  • 270g of filo pastry
  • 200g of spinach
  • 6rashes of smoked streaky bacon
  • 6 large eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard powder
  • ½ bunch of fresh chives
  • 3 medium leeks, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  • Lightly grease a 20x30cm dish with oil. Cover it with a layer of pastry, letting the edges overhang slightly. Brush with a little of oil and add another layer. 270 should give enough of pastry for 3-4 layers.
  • Place the spinach in a colander and pour boiling water over it to wilt it. Push the spinach down with the back of your spoon, let it cool a bit and then, using your hands, squeeze out any excess water. Chop the spinach roughly and set aside
  • Grill the bacon till crisp. Set aside to cool.
  • Whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt and black pepper, then whisk in the milk and mustard powder, snip in the chives and grate in the lemon zest.
  • Crumble the bacon into the spinach, add the leek. Mix well and scatter into the filo pastry case.
  • Pour over the egg mixture and place the dish on the bottom of the oven. Bake for 30-40min (you want it to set)
  • Leave the pie to cool for 20min before slicing.

    Serve with green salad and enjoy!
