1 (7 ounce) package
garlic herb cheese spread
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
These are great, espeically as a vegetarian option for a hot appetizer. One suggestion: after rolling spinach and dough up, put it in the freezer for 15 minutes, or refrigerate for as long as you like, they are much easier to cut that way. I also put extra cheese spread on.
These were ok I had trouble with the insides cooking, maybe I had too much filling but the outsides were close to burning before the inside dough was baked.
I've been making these as party appetizers for a few years now. I use fresh baby spinach and the light alouette garlic and herb cheese spread. Sometimes, I put in a few very thin slices of virginia baked ham from the deli as well. They are always a hit. I appreciate the idea to refrigerate them before slicing. I've always found them hard to slice, but I'd never thought of that. Thanks for the suggestion- I'll try it next time!
Great idea! I modified it a bit... sauteed diced ham, onion, and mushrooms in olive oil, then added to half of spinach mixture before placing on crescent roll dough. I also added some shredded cheese to the mixture, plus some oregano & ground black pepper. I made "mini" pinwheels, then topped with swiss cheese before baking. Had to bake an extra 5-6 minutes to get them cooked through and golden brown, but they were great! Especially good served with a creamy dressing/dip, like Ranch, dill, or Caesar. Will definitely make again!
This is a very easy and tasty appetizer. Definitely put the dough back in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes for easier slicing. Next time a will use more of the cheese spread and might even stir the spinach into it before spreading. I will make these many more times I'm sure!
these pinwheels are easy & delicious! i made a half recipe for new years day using one package crescent rolls, a 4 oz. package of boursin's lite herb cheese spread & almost the whole 10 oz. package of spinach. as recommended by other reviewers, i chilled the roll for easier slicing. i also put the pinwheels under the broiler during the last minute to make them golden brown. thanks bonnie!
This was really good! easy to make!!!
Very easy to make. Great appitizer. I used fresh chopped spinach. Thanks.
