What's for Dinner: Spinach and Cheese Swirls

These Spinach and Cheese Swirls are a great and quick, appetizer or snack!

You will need:
  •  1 sheet of [Pepperidge Farm] Puff Pastry
  •  1 egg
  •  1 tablespoon of water
  •  1/2 cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  •  1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  •  1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  •  1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
To make your Spinach and Cheese Swirls, do the following:
  1. Leave out your pastry sheet at room temperature to let it soften.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, mix together your egg and water and set it aside. Mix together your Monterey Jack cheese, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder.
  3. Brush your [softened] Puff Pastry sheet with the egg mixture. Next, sprinkle your cheese mixture on top. Finally, add your spinach on top. 
  4. Put it in the freezer for a few minutes, and then roll it up like a jelly roll. Tip: Putting it in the freezer makes it easier for you to cut them. Cut into even, thin [but not too thin] slices. Place on baking sheet. Brush the tops with egg mixture once more [to help get the golden color on top].
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. 
They can be served warm or at room temperature [I find them to taste best while they are warm, right out of the oven].

OMG this looks absolutely DELISH! I can't wait to make this recipe. I'm celebrating my birthday with a spice giveaway and recipe link up and I'd love for you to link this recipe along with any others that use any of these spices: cumin, chipotle, garlic, oregano, cinnamon, or cardamom.

Emily - definitely try it again! I've also made batches of them in advance and frozen them [after slicing them] for convenience.

Thanks Kathy, Marilyn, and Natasha!
