2 (8 ounce) packages
refrigerated crescent rolls
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!
Very easy to make. Great appitizer. I used fresh chopped spinach. Thanks.
