  • 4 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

  • 1 cup chopped canned artichoke hearts, patted dry

  • 3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 8 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided


  1. Place spinach, artichokes, cream cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic powder, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine well.

  2. Divide the spinach mixture among 4 bread slices (about 1/2 cup each). Top each with another slice of bread.

  3. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 sandwiches and cook until crispy and browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking, adjusting heat as necessary, until the cheese has melted and the filling is hot, 2 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and 2 sandwiches. Serve immediately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
