These mini spinach pies also pack a bit o' luck!

This St. Patty's Day, you can wear your green…and eat it too!!!

And you can clearly see, these wee little spinach pies are not only packed with lots of delicious fresh spinach –they are shaped into charming little four-leaf clovers!

All you need is an aluminum foil muffin pan to make it happen, and these lucky little pies will be the talk o' your brunch.

Here's the how to make the deliciousness happen!


Use aluminum muffin tins for this recipe.

First, it's time to clover-ify two 6-cup aluminum foil baking pans.


Pinch corners to form a teardrop shape in the muffin cup.

Pinch together one side of the four corner cups to form each into a teardrop shape.


Cut each Pillsbury pie crust into four quarters.

Then take some Pillsbury pie crust, divide each crust into quarters.


Press each quarter into the corner cups.

And then press each quarter down into the teardrop baking cups.  Pre-bake each pan for about 5 minutes.


Fill with spinach and egg mixture.

Meanwhile, prepare your spinach pie filling.  Then once the pie crusts are out, fill each crust to the top, but not overflowing.  Bake again for 20-25 minutes or until the pies are set.


Put four mini pies together to form a four-leaf clover.

Serve with the corners nestled together to form four leaf clovers.  And have a very happy St. Patrick's Day!
