  1. FANTASTIC!!! TRUE! SO E-X-C-I-T-E_D- NOT to see egg in it too! SIMPLE and EASY to make! Nice and healthy for my friend's and family sake! THANKS!
  2. another winner kitten!!! loved it, made it as a later night snack because i am always looking for a yummy lunch with little work, and this will be gone tomorrow. but the part i had today oh so good.
  3. Everyone thought the recipe was great. Next time, I may add boiled chopped eggs to the layers, since my husband's favorite spinach recipe calls for eggs.
  4. Kittencal this dish was awesome and deserved 10+Stars! I reviewed it once but this time we added boursin cheese and with the gruyere it was just wonderful. We didn't get the parmesan but used boursin, instead and it was so nice & cheesy & creamy! The spinach should have been chopped because I had leftover's that were even better the second day. A couple people suggested that I could serve it as a dip with crackers, toasted & herbed pita pieces or toast points made from cocktail rye. Thank you so much for posting, Carol, it is just what I expect from you & your recipes. Marvelous!!! Di
  5. Great recipe! Even hubby to is a meat and potatoes kinda guy really enjoyed this. Only change I made was to use Jarlesberg cheese.
