Makes 1 Loaf

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 envelope Fleischmann’s RapidRise Yeast
3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1/4 teaspoon pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup 1% milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup (about 1-1/2 ounces) chopped fresh spinach
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1/8 teaspoon pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon rosemary, chopped

Dough: In large bowl combine all-purpose flour, undissolved yeast, flaxseed meal, seasonings, and salt. Heat honey, milk, and oil to 120° F to 130° F; gradually add to dry ingredients. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. With wooden spoon, stir in enough of the whole wheat flour to make a soft dough. Knead on floured surface for about 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; cover with dish towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

Filling: In small bowl, combine filling ingredients; mix. Set aside.

Roll dough to a 12 X 8-inch rectangle. Spread filling evenly over surface of dough to within 1-inch of edges; press filling into dough. Working from narrow end, roll up tightly. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place in greased 9 X 5-inch loaf pan. Cover; set in a warm place and let rise until doubled in size, about 50 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375° F. Bake for 20 minutes. For Topping, in a small bowl lightly beat egg white with water. Brush mixture over surface of loaf, and sprinkle with crushed red pepper and rosemary. Bake an additional 20 minutes. Note: You may need to cover loaf with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent excess browning. Remove from pan. Cool on wire rack.
