Spinach Turnover Recipe

15 Dec

Spinach Turnover Recipe is a flavorful, healthy, filling dish that everyone is sure to love.  If you have some picky eaters, this is a great way to get them to eat their veggies.

Recently, I’ve been watching old Julia Child cooking videos from her TV show “The French Chef”.  I came across this recipe for Spinach Turnover, and instantly wanted to make one.  Now, I don’t own any of Julia Child’s cookbooks, something I intend on  fixing soon, so I had to write down this recipe straight from the video.  It is kind of a long recipe, but it’s not too complicated to make, and it tastes delicious!  If you should have any questions about the recipe, you can easily search for Julia Child’s cooking videos.  This one in particular is found on PBS.com and is called “The Spinach Twins”.  The video should help clear up anything I did not make clear in the recipe.

Something that is great about Spinach Turnover is that you can make and assemble the night before, and pop in the over the next day for dinner.  This helps make cooking so much easier, especially on busy nights.  Spinach Turnover is flavorful, healthy, and well worth the effort.  My husband was not too sure about this at first, and was requesting a “back-up” dinner.  It was not needed.  He loved this recipe and couldn’t get enough.

I’ll give you a helpful short cut, if you don’t want to, or don’t know how to make your own pastry dough, you can buy pre-made pie crust.  You can take one package (two 9″ pie crusts) and roll them together to make the amount of dough you need for the Spinach Turnover.  This is actually the method I use and it works out very well.

    For months I have been cooking a very similar family recipe. I am excited to try this one.
