I loved this recipe!! I will add salt next time, maybe a little less garlic, as others have recommended. This is very, very rich though. I can't wait to bring it to the next party as an appetizer! (I will put it in one large sourdough loaf and use bread and crackers to dip)mmmmmmm!

I just made one to see if I would like it - maybe I did something wrong in the scaling but I found it too heavy on the garlic and the parmesan. The other flavours were lovely, and I do like garlic but I couldn't get the taste out of my mouth all night. I only used 1/2 clove for 1 sandwich.

OUTRAGEOUS! I used half the parmigiano (I ran out) and it was fantastic. Very Rich, better for an appetizer, too much for a main dish. The next day I took the leftover chicken/spinach stuffing, added a cup of heavy cream and served over pasta. It was fantastic, again.

I really liked this rich recipe. It was very filling- could only eat one!! i did think it was way heavy on the garlic. will try to scale that down next time if i make again.

Another great recipe from Rebecca! Since I was doing this for a group, I hollowed out a loaf of sourdough french bread and stuffed it. Because of the comments about garlic, I used 1T of Mrs. Dash Garlic/Herb Blend and finely chopped broccoli rather than the spinach. One half cup of diced green onion, and it was perfect! Several folks wanted the recipe. Thanks again, Rebecca.

No one in my family cares for spinach, but they were loving this. Wonderful dinner and so easy to make. Definitely try this one!!

great recipe! I didn't make them in buns, instead I used 1/2c. asagio, 1/2c. mozzarella and 1c. bleu cheese. Added hot sauce like others suggested and since I'm a huge garlic fan I kept the amount the same (actually 7 because an extra clove fell off the bulb). Baked it in a dish and served it with pieces from a bread boule. Delish!
