How to make it
- Melt 1 tbsp butter in large fry pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add spinach; cook 5 minutes or until spinach is dry-ish.
- Remove from heat and place in a bowl; stir in feta cheese, oregano and nutmeg. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Place 4 slices of cheese on 4 pieces of bread. Divide spinach mixture evenly among the 4 slices of bread; top with another piece of cheese and the 2nd slices of bread.
- Wipe out fry pan with paper towel; place over medium heat until hot and add a dollop of butter. Add sandwiches; cover with large lid. Cook sandwiches over low heat, around 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts. (flip half way through cooking to get both sides toasty -- you could also use an indoor grill or panini press for this too)
