The only reason that I gave this recipe a 4 out of 5 is due to the fact that I had to modify the recipe in order to get it right in my preparation. I made this twice and the first time it ended up coming unsealed due to the wrong measurements of filling. I love the taste and my husband asks for this now when asking what he wants me to cook him for dinner.

When my husband and I met, he raved about his mother's "spinach loaf", I had no clue what he was talking about, so I had to ask her for the recipe. This is almost the same recipe, the entire family LOVES when it's o the menu for dinner!

This is the best ever! I always brush the dough with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds before baking. Or poppy seeds, caraway seeds and more......
