Spinach and Cheese Pinwheels

I made these pinwheels as an appetizer when we had another family come over for a small dinner party. I actually love spinach, and they were a big hit with everyone!

Here’s a little tip for you: Buy your puff pastry in the frozen section of your grocery store! It saves you so much time and it comes out so flaky and delicious that you won’t even think that it was pre-made! I am not a big fan of garlic, so I left the garlic powder out, but other than that, these tasty little bites are fabulous!

Spianch-Cheese Pinwheels (Pepperidge Farms)

  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1/4 c shredded muenster cheese
  • 1/4 c shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 1/4 grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 pkg (10 oz) of frozen spinach, thawed and drained

Heat the oven to 400 degrees and beat the egg and water together in a little bowl with a fork. Stir the cheeses, onion, and garlic powder together. Unfold the puff pastry and brush with the egg mixture. Top with the cheese mixture and the spinach.Starting with a short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Then cut 20 1/2 in slices and place them cut side down on greased cookie sheets. Brush the slices with the egg mixture and bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden. Let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.
