I came across this recipe when I lived and worked in New Orleans, where po’boys are very popular. This meatless version featuring spinach and cheese can be served as an appetizer or sandwich, or try it as a side dish with a pasta casserole.

  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Spread spinach mixture over the bottom halves of bread. Sprinkle with cheeses; replace bread tops. Wrap each loaf in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Carefully open foil; bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Cut into slices. Yield: 12-16 slices.

"This sandwich is excellent. My daughter is a vegetarian and loves it. I would decrease the cooking time to have a softer sandwich."
