    Quick, easy and gone very quickly. Doubled recipe second time with no difficulty. I leave out the nutmeg and use seasoned salt as a personal preference.

    Very bland and really needs some punch. Nutmeg seems out of place. There are many others out there that can satisfy.

    I am rarely disappointed by a TOH recipe. This was very bland. I wish I had followed my instincts and added bacon.

    The nutmeg was an odd taste for me so next time I would omit it and use garlic in place.

    Very, very good! The fact that my picky husband ate 3 slices pretty much answered my question, "Do you like it?" I did only use an 1/8 tsp of the nutmeg, because I wasn't sure I'd like the taste, but I'll use 1/4 tsp next time (and there will be a next time!). I had canadian bacon to use up, so I finely dices about 3 ounces. It wasn't a lot of meat, but just enough. Next time I'll maybe try bacon or ham or whatever I have, but not too much to take away from the wonderful spinach and cheese flavor. I'm glad I found this in one of my oldest TOH cookbooks!
