"This is one of my favorites and have been making it for a long time. The only thing I change is not to add the hot sauce."

"We really enjoy these. I used about 4-5 cups of spinach, and that was enough for 2 servings. The spinach really wilts and shrinks down."

"Wonderful recipe! IF I want to make it a bit healthier, I MAY use olive oil instead of butter, but the spinach takes care of the "healthy" in my cookbook-mind! - and I use a bit more than the recipe calls for. I like "packed" sandwiches!! I love Artisan's bread for this kind of sandwich, but will also use individual buns - even Kaiser rolls, as long as they're a wee bit crusty. Thanks for a great recipe - and helpful reviews, especially re using frozen spinach if that's the only spinach in the house!"

"I am usually a "meat guy" but the idea of "greeking" this up with some feta appeals very much and my wife is making this as I write. I've sampled the spinach filling with some cheese added (without bread) and been shoo-ed away. Quite delicious... I don't see how bread will detract from it so 4-stars for carnivores and one more star because vegetarians will love this. Most anyone is clever enough to make this more healthful if so desired."

"We don't eat any meat during Lent. This recipe showed up just in time.

Have I tried it yet, well no. Do I know if I sub out the cheddar with Swiss or feta it will be a hit? Yes, I do. What an excellent idea. Thanks!"

"Made as directed very good Second time I used 2 pks of frozen creamed spinach, defrosted them, was very good and cheesy."
