Family Recipe - Spinach Bread

Here is a tried-and-true family recipe from my mom's recipe collection!  

We love Spinach Bread, and while it's not exactly low in calories, it DOES contain spinach.  My mom used to make this bread quite often for parties.  Minutes after setting out a fresh platter only crumbs were left behind.  So, if you want to bring a highly requested recipe to your next get-together, try Spinach Bread and surely you will not be disappointed.

Spinach Bread

Ingredients:

1 loaf French Bread (Italian is good, too)
1 box frozen creamed spinach
3 oz. cream cheese
10 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, grated

butter
garlic powder

Cut bread in half lengthwise and butter.  Sprinkle with garlic powder.  Cook creamed spinach according to package instructions.  Mix cooked spinach with cream cheese until cream cheese is melted.  Spoon mixture evenly onto both halves of the bread.  Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.  Broil 2 minutes or until cheese is browned.

Enjoy!
