I modified this for what I had on hand. Instead of mayonnaise I used ricotta and I only added 1 tbsp of mustard as 2 would have been too much for me. I didn't have any bacon but I imagine it would have been good! I served them with tomato soup.
Idea is great, just modified it dramatically due to what was in my fridge. I mixed the fresh spinach with shredded mozarella and cottage cheese, added musterd and a tiny spoon of mayonaise, than spread it on my (dark) bread and put some slices of pastrami on top. Grilled and it tasted delicious!! thank for a great idea.
Decent sandwich, a step up from grilled cheese, to be sure. Being a vegetarian, I made it without the bacon, and I'm betting that ingredient makes it a whole lot better.
We loved this sandwich!! My DH said "this is a keeper" dubbed it the "spinach Reuben" and devoured every bite! Made it just as written but with MSF vegetarian bacon. We're already looking forward to the next time! Yummm!!! Thank you maddy331 for posting!
I used to make this & am so glad to find it again. Although I never used bacon, I will next time. It's absolutely delicious even without it and I'm sure that would just send it over the top! Another nice touch is adding some sauteed mushrooms with the spinach/cheese mixture. Yum!
Yum! My son and I both (surprisingly) loved this! He came in the house, saying that something smelled really good, and the compliments kept coming. I used what I had on hand: grated gouda (instead of swiss), and whole wheat bread. I added a clove of crushed garlic, and I grilled it on my George Foreman. I mixed everything together, and spread it on the bread. My son, who's a bacon lover, looked at the recipe to verify its addition, and said was really great. Thanks!
This was delicious! It's getting 4 stars because the ingredient list wasn't very clear, and I can't imagine how this would serve only 2 people! I used reduced fat mozzarella cheese, fat free mayo (1 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp for one person), spicy brown mustard, turkey bacon & a whole wheat tortilla instead of bread. I didn't use that much parmesan; the mozzarella was enough cheese for me! I cooked it like a quesadilla, folded over in a skillet-and added minced onion, garlic powder & oregano. I am a spice fiend! This was a lovely lunch & really did taste like spinach dip. I love the dip from Costco, but it is SO high in fat, so this was great to find. Thank u for sharing!
Absolutly outstanding sammich! It was much much tastier than I thought it would be, and I knew it would be good! I didn't add the bacon, and as delicious as I'm sure it is, I'm glad I didn't add it because this sandwich tastes really rich and really delicious without it. I added minced garlic in the cheese mixture, and used mozzarella & light mayo. It kind of tastes like a cheesy spinich dip. Thanks for a great recipe!!
We really REALLY enjoyed these sandwiches! I made them today for lunch using a hearty honey, oat and barley bread. Yumm! I used Dijon mustard as that was all I had and so only used 1 TBS of it since it is rather strong. Also I used mayonnaise to butter the bread before grilling rather than butter. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
