This is one of my most requested recipes. Not low-calorie, but absolutely delish! I've also used steamed broccoli in place of spinach.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • Pull the soft middle section out of each side of French bread and tear middle sections into pieces.

  • Stir Monterey Jack cheese cubes, sour cream, spinach, mushrooms, and seasoned salt together in a large bowl.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic in hot butter until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir bread pieces into garlic mixture; cook and stir until bread soaks up butter and begins to toast, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add bread mixture to sour cream mixture; stir.

  • Stuff each bread crust with sour cream-spinach mixture and place loaves crust-side down on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and tops begin to brown, about 30 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

This was OK. My husband liked it but he said the flavors were "interesting." I'm not sure I will make it again. Read More

Very Good! This bread is VERY filling, so I think it would be great w/ just a salad for a light dinner or cut up small for appy's. I only used 1/2 of the seasoned salt and that was plenty, IMO, and I also cut back on the sour cream a bit b/c I didn't have the full 16oz. on hand. I really liked the idea of toasting the insides of the bread in butter and garlic...it tasted really good, lol. Nice flavors...I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More
