Spinach-Cheese Swirls

This recipe is from the back of the Puff Pastry Sheets box (Pepperidge Farm brand).

Ingredients & Prices

1/2 of a 17.3 oz. pkg. Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet) - $1.45
1 egg - $0.15
1 Tbsp Water
1/2 cup shredded Muenster or Monterey Jack cheese (I used MJ) - $0.45
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese - $0.63
1 green onion, chopped - $0.17
1/8 tsp garlic powder (I used 1 clove minced garlic instead) - $0.03
1 pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained - $0.95


Follow instructions for thawing pastry sheet. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix egg and water. 

Lay out pastry sheet and brush with about half of egg mixture, maybe a little less. 

Stir cheeses, onion, and garlic together. Top pastry sheet with cheese mixture and spinach. Roll it up. Good luck. It's hard. Try to get it tight and pinch the ends. Make sure your counter has some flour on it before you put down the pastry sheet. Else, badness ensues. Really.

Slice into 20 1/2 inch slices. I got about 15. 

Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden. Wait for the golden. It's worth it.

Warm or at room temp, yummy.

Sorry that the pictures aren't super crazy awesome. But still, they look yummy. 

Total Price for 15 Spinach-Cheese Amazings: $3.83

We ate these (about half of them) andouille sausage and rice. Today, my five year old and I finished them at lunch. Enjoy!
