Appetizers are the highlight of parties at our home. Slices of this golden loaf swirled with spinach and cheese disappear in a hurry. They're a tasty accompaniment to most any meal, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar or part-skim mozzarella


  • 1. Thaw bread dough according to package directions; let rise until doubled. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in spinach.

"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."
