A few years ago, I had a recipe for a Spinach Souffle roll from Woman's World magazine. I had hoped that I had found that recipe or at least something like it. I was so excited about finding this recipe that I made two. Basicly, this is a recipe for a fritatta. The texture is like an omelette or scrambled eggs. I even tried baking the second one for a little while longer. The filling is no where near as good as the filling in the recipe that I once had. As for appearance, if you can actually get the souffle out of the jelly roll pan it would probably be ok to look at. I tried one with foil that stuck even though I greased and floured the foil, then I tried one with parchment paper which was worse. If you do try this recipe, try it ahead of time rather than making it the first time when you are expecting guests. When I find the other (good) recipe, I will definetly post it.
