Cooking with Katherine: Spinach & Cheese Swirls


Last updated 9/21/2011 at Noon

Can you guess by now that I really love to eat my spinach? You probably noticed I cook with a lot of cheese too. Yes this is very true. I try to balance out my meals with lots of veggies, and when possible incorporate some fruits in our diet too. You will never see me cook a meat without a vegetable to go with it, and I try to have a starch too, normally only one though.

I will cut out the starch and make a salad and extra vegetable dish to go with the fish or meat if I am trying to cut back.

I am not a bread eater for sure, but enjoy eating garlic bread every now and then. This recipe I am telling you about will give you a combination of all your food groups except the meat. If you would like to have a complete meal, then just add any left-over meat to this recipe or just brown some ground beef and add before folding up your roll of pastry.

I made this for an appetizer this past weekend and everyone who liked spinach loved them, including me. Happy eating!

1 pkg. of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets

1 egg

½ cup shredded Muenster cheese (so good)

Or Monterey Jack cheese

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 green onion, chopped

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

1 pkg. (about 10oz.) frozen chopped spinach thawed and well drained

Thaw pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 min. or until easy to handle. Heat oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.

Stir egg in a small cup. Stir Muenster cheese, Parmesan cheese, onion and garlic powder in medium bowl.

Unfold pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Put both sheets side by side and do not open, just flour board under them and pastry roller. Roll out flat, about 10 inches wide, sealing them together in the middle.

Brush egg on top first, then add cheese and spinach mixture about 4-5 inches from one end. Roll up jelly roll style, folding in sides first then roll up and slice into one inch slices.

After putting on cookie sheet, brush the top with the rest of egg coating all the top real good. Bake for 25 min. then broil on low and cook tops till browned good. You must watch this closely!

If you want me to make these for you that is possible too. Just call for your order today.
