Eat Your Swiss Chard

Swiss chard and potato pie is one of my favorite ways to prepare this vegetable. To make it chop 2 cups cooked and very well squeezed Swiss chard and in a bowl mix it with 2 cups seasoned mashed potatoes, an egg, 1/2 cup grated cheese (your favorite), salt and pepper and combine well. Transfer to a greased pie dish and smooth top. Add sliced tomatoes to top and sprinkle with grated cheese. Drizzle a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil over the top and bake about 45 minutes in a 350F oven. Let cool slightly then cut into wedges to serve.

    Will this work with no cheese? Thank you!

    I'll be trying this recipe this weekend. One of our favorite recipes is your Stuffed Swiss Chard with Tomato Sauce - a definite family favorite, and I've even frozen leftovers and we get to enjoy it when fresh chard isn't available.
