Spinach pie with spring roll sheets

 Very few times, we have the ingredients and mood to prepare a dish, that was just shown on TV. This spinach pie is such one dish, which i saw in TLC, prepared by donna hay. instantly, i tried and served for break-fast!
I bought some spring roll sheets months back, and they were lying in my freezer, the idea of making spinach pie in spring roll sheets was instant and am glad that it worked out perfect.

We all liked this pie, the spiring roll sheets were crisp and the filling was too good and tasted cheesy. who will say no to a iron rich and protein rich filling!

Now place the filling in the centre of the sheet and fold the four sides of the sheets. brush butter on top of the folds. if the folds don't hold, just prick in tooth picks to the four corners of the folded sheets. like wise make another pie.

Bake them for about 35 minutes, till the filling is completely set and the spring roll sheets should have turned into light brown and crispier.
