Review This Recipe
Good recipe. Could not find stouffers creamed spinach, so I used 10 oz box frozen spinach and 1/2 can cream of mushroom. Works great! I also added a 8 oz. package of sliced mushrooms sauteed. Everyone loves these at my house.
A real treat!
This recipe is easy to make and is absolutely delicious! I have made it for my family and for potlucks and I have yet to find someone who doesn't care for it. I usually include a side of marinara as a complement. I would recommend this recipe to anyone...rookie cook or experienced chef:)
Even the Chef liked it!
My husband, the professional chef, really enjoyed this one. He usually scoffs at anything that has previously prepared ingredients (like the spinach and the bread dough). I made a few modifications that really made it tremendous. I used spicy italian sausage for an added kick, mushrooms for texture, and garlic/olive oil marinated roasted red peppers (12 oz. instead of 7). This one will definitely be served in this house again! Next time I'll have to make two!
I fixed three of these tonight for six friends. I don't have enough left for my husband and I to have an "encore presentation" for tomorrow's lunch. This is EXCELLENT!!!
My very picky husband LOVED this dish! He was hesitant at first but then proceeded to finish the whole loaf by the next day! He made me promise to keep this recipe handy!
Very simple to make too! Took all of 15 minutes!
This is a wonderful recipe and very easy!! I was surprised at how quickly it went together. I will make this again for sure!
Pretty and tasty
I made this the other day and we all loved it...including my 5 yr.old!
Make sure to buy the creamed spinach - found in the frozen meal section-not the frozen spinach in the vegetables section.
I spread out the bread dough by hand onto a greased foil lined pan...It was super easy!
Kick It Up with hot sauce
My grocery store didn't carry the Stouffer's brand of creamed spinach. I used another brand. I don't know if it makes a difference. I reheated the left overs, serving it with a bottle of Louisiana Hot Sauce on the table. A few squirts turned bland to Kablam! Mmmm Mmmm.
serving this again!!
I didn't have any italian sausage so I substitued with kielbsa (polish sausage) instead and it still tasted great! I also tried another reader's suggestion of using filo dough. I used 14 sheets of dough. 1/2 through baking the filling had a blow out. So next time I may use more sheets or maybe make two rolls instead. But either way, this was tops!
"This one's a Keeper"
...or so my boyfriend says (between bites). An easy, excellent recipe. If you're feeling adventurous, you can substitute Filo dough for the frozen bread dough! A definite 5!
WOW! The Family Like This One!
My wife and I decided to try this recipe . . . and WOW! The Family Like This One!
We ate half for one meal and decided to freeze the other half for later.
Even when we ate the one that we had in the freezer for awhile . . . the flavor and taste was even better!
Easy recipe. The creamed spinach really made the difference. My family loved it.
