Spinach and Herb Roll Up

Filling:

2 Tbsp Grapeseed Oil
1 Medium Onion, Chopped
Salt and Pepper
1 tsp Grated Lemon Zest
10oz Frozen Spinach
1/4 C Fresh Dill, chopped
1/2 C Fresh Parsley, chopped
1 C Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese, grated
1/8 tsp freshly ground Nutmeg
2 eggs, beaten

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the onion and cook until the onion is soft and just beginning to brown.  Add the lemon zest and cook, stirring, 30 seconds.  Add spinach, stir and cook for 4 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in the parsley, dill, salt and pepper to taste.  Let filling cool, squeeze out the excess moisture.  Transfer the filling to  a bowl and stir in the cheddar and parmesan cheeses and nutmeg.  Stir in eggs. 

Use 2 pounds of your favorite bread recipe.  After the dough is made, place the dough on an oiled surface; using your rolling pin, roll out a rectangle approximately 12x18, 1 inch thick. 

Spread cooled filling over dough.  Roll dough starting from the long side.  Roll up like a cinnamon roll making no more that 3-4 turns of the dough.  Cut into slices with a serated knife, 1-1 1/2" thick.  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Let rise until double in size, then bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.
