I made this for the Revised Bargain Basement Game because it had never been reviewed and it sounded delish. I really wanted to like this because Julesong always makes such good stuff. I'm sorry to say that it didn't turn out so good. Although the spinach mix was good, with a cup of breadcrumbs it wasn't a bold enough taste to carry the dough surrounding it. I did make some adjustments: pumped up the parmesan and slightly decreased the breadcrumbs. My husband and son turned up their noses as the nutmeg, though I thought it was an interesting addition. It did make a great picture.
