Reviews for Spinach-Stuffed Bread
"This tasted really really good - I served it to company and ALL of it went. Just one thing though, I thought it was going to be a disaster as the loaves 'flopped' completely when they came out the oven. Thankfully though, once it was cut it looked fine and tated wonderful."
"I put ham or turkey in mine it is a family favorite"
"Added a little basil, salt and pepper. It was great."
