"A delicious sandwich made by a local deli."
Serving Size: 1 (101 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 2
"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!"
"Absolutely incredible! I made these last night for dinner. Didn't change a thing. Served it with chips and pickles as suggested. They were so good! My fiance is still talking about it! Oops! I forgot the stars! "
"Very good. I didn't actually measure anything lol. I made a dijon mayo mixture in the quantities I know I prefer and mixed it in with the spin and cheese. DH appreciated the bacon (one of his favorite food groups) and I used his home made rye bread. I grilled in a sandwich press w/o the butter and we just loved it. Although, I caution, don't be tempted to overfill these if you plan to make them in a press :-) it was a bit of a mess, and actually, overfilling ment that not all the cheese melted. These were great, and even good for lunch company. Thanks for a great recipe. "
"Delicious and simple! I loved the spinach in this -made for a nice change of pace from the lettuce I generally use in sandwiches. I omitted the bacon since we don't eat that. The only reason for 4* instead of 5* was because I found the taste of the mayo too prominent. Next time I will add the slightest smattering or omit it entirely. "
"Yum! This was a great lunch! I mixed my crumbled bacon in with the spinach and cheese mixture and spread it on multi-grain bread. I love grilled cheese, and this recipe was tops."
