Spinach Po'boys Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12-16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 loaves (8 ounces each) French bread
  • 1 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, trimmed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cut each loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Spread cut sides with 1/2 cup butter; set aside. In a large skillet, cook onions in remaining butter for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Add the spinach, garlic powder and hot pepper sauce; cook and stir for 3 minutes or until spinach is tender.
  • 2. 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.
