"They made their own pie crust, but I'm using a 2 crust package of dough. As always season to taste. They just said cheese, so you do you. This would be an excellent Lent dish. She said it was a popular dish there probably during lent, that her grandma made it a lot."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2

Chop the zucchini and onions into thin slices to be cooked together on the stove.

Step 3

Heat up some oil in a pan and cook the zucchini and onion together on low heat.

Step 4

Once they are cooked, turn up the heat on the stove so that the juice from the zucchini evaporates.

Step 5

This mix should be relatively dry without much juice.

Step 6

After the zucchini and onion are fully cooked, take them off the stove and let cool for ten minutes.

Step 7

Once cooled, add the cheese and eggs into the zucchini mixture along with the salt, pepper and the nutmeg, seasoning to taste.

Step 8

You can add more nutmeg to taste, but be careful not to add too much as this can be quite strong.

Step 9

Mix all of these ingredients together well.

Step 10

Let cool and once the mixture is nice and cool, add the mixture onto the pie crust and top the pie with the other pie crust .

Step 11

Paint the top of the pie with a beaten egg and poke the pie several times with a fork so that it does not explode in the oven.

Step 12

Place in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the crust has browned.

Step 13

Let the pie cool for 45 minutes before serving.

This is delicious! I made two changes, used cayenne for the nutmeg and only had one pie crust. So what I did was, used panko bread crumbs, melted butter and a good grating of Grana Padano cheese and topped the pie with that. And served this with your Tomato Rice Soup. Delightful dinner! Thank you for sharing your recipes.
