Author Notes: I make this often as a side for grilled meats but it can also be an appetizer when cut in smaller pieces or a snack or even lunch/dinner.inpatskitchen

Makes: 4 side servings

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces baby spinach leaves(leave the stems on)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded part skim mozzarella cheese (shred your own)
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 2 large garlic cloves put through a garlic press
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons aleppo pepper ( or a dash of cayenne if you don't have aleppo)
  • One 12 inch baguette

Directions

  1. Wilt the spinach leaves in a pan with a couple of tablespoons of water. Cool and then squeeze as dry as possible. Chop the leaves and then place them in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Stir in the cheeses, mayo, garlic, butter and aleppo pepper until everything is thoroughly combined.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400F. Slice the baguette lengthwise and then cut each half in half again. Divide the spinach mixture over the cut sides of the bread. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until the spinach/cheese mixture looks melted and the edges of the bread are just starting to brown a bit.
  4. NOTE: If making this as an appetizer, just slice the baguette in half, spread the spinach mixture over and then cut in small slices after baking.

Yum. The spinach can quickly be wilted in the microwave as well. Delish. I've been looking for new sandwich ideas. I'll put this on my list.
