Love everything about these. All the flavors went so well together. I made the full batch and so glad I did. I used Savory Herb Stuffing Mix and I think that added a lot to the flavors. I over baked mine just a little because of last minute distractions, but they were still good. I had my own Hot Pepper Mustard that I served this with. I'll be making these again BK. Thanks. Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game :)

Great flavor and texture. Now I have one more creative way to get healthy spinach into our diet. Made these as a friday night appetizer. I did however have my own Spicy Mustard Sauce. Thanks for sharing. {made and reviewed for NZ/AUS recipe swap #31, Aug. 2009}

Have to agree with the rest . . . these are very tasty! Served them with a wasabi-ginger musteard. :yummy: Made them for a potluck and since there were kids there left out the hot sauce. Next time I'll add the hot sauce. So that the kids would eat them, called them Monkey Food. Only had 16 oz. of spinach so reduced everything by 20%. It did take 25 minutes to bake. Thanks for sharing!
