Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a miniature muffin pan.
  2. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and cook until tender and lightly browned.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together onion, spinach, mayonnaise, mozzarella cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  4. Unroll buttermilk biscuit dough. Separate each biscuit into two. Place biscuit dough halves into the prepared miniature muffin pan, forming small cups that extend slightly beyond the rim. Fill the biscuit dough cups with desired amounts of the onion and spinach mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven 12 minutes, or until biscuit dough and filling are lightly browned.

These are soooo good! I'm not a big fan of the nutmeg, though... I prefer to add just a touch along with some garlic salt. Also, you may use the fillo shells available in the frozen food section -- they're quick and tasty. The recipe fills about 45 fillo cups...

I love spinach and thought these sounded delicious. I found they were alot of work and weren't that good. I had a party for 45 people and ended up throwing out 3/4 of what I made. No one ate them. The biscuits were hard to separate and shrunk in the greased pans so it was hard to put filling in. They were "okay" when they were warm, but when cooled off no one touched them. I would not make them again.

I TRIED THESE SPINACH TREATS AND THEY WERE A HUGE HIT! THEY WERE GONE IN A FLASH. THIS IS THE MOST-REQUESTED DISH IN MY HOUSE. I HAVE ALSO CHANGED THE RECIPE BY USING BROCCOLI WITH CHEDDAR CHEESE AND SAUTEED MUSHROOMS WITH MOZZARELLA CHEESE. THANKS FOR THE GREAT RECIPE.

Oh, yum! I had a little trouble getting a hang of forming the cups, but once I did, these were a cinch. They are sooooo good right out of the oven!

These were a huge hit at my party! I accidently bought "Grand" biscuits so I compensated by dividing into thirds. Found that making the spinach mixture in the morning and letting it chill until baking time helped with the ease of spooning into the cups. Also found that there was enough spinach mixture to make closer to 35 biscuits. EXCELLENT, DEFINITELY A KEEPER!!

I used a big muffin pan and the biscuits turned out great but the spinach mixture was not good.

These little appetizers were amazing. I made them for a potluck Halloween party. Everyone raved about them. They are much better when they are warm. Anita

I put these in wonton wrappers, and I'm glad I did. I made other apps w/ bisuits and they were too big and not enough filling once they were cooked. I made these stuffed and in mini cups, both were good. I used monteray jack cheese. I couldn't taste the nutmeg, but maybe I didn't add enough (I never measure anything).
