Great recipe I did use fresh spinach, and a mixture of parmesan, feta, Italian cheese mixture, came out great and stayed together, the mushrooms, scallions, and cheese in the center is delish ... thanks
LOVE this. I usually don't mess with recipes but on this one I made a mistake and added the saut?ed mushrooms and onions to the meat mixture instead of the spinach stuffing and it was awesome!!! To avoid bread we always substitute bread crumbs for almond meal, and WOW, SOOOO GOOD in this too!! Making it again 3 days later from my first attempt ;-). Family of 3 ate the entire loaf in one night!!
This was a great addition to our menu. DH thought it was better with more salt & pepper (as usual). I used ground flax seed in place of the egg white and left the cheese off the top.
