Cheesy Spinach Pinwheels

Mmm…golden, flaky puff pastry wrapped around melted cheeses and hearty, garlicky spinach, shaped into cute little spirals? How perfect are these Cheesy Spinach Pinwheels!? I melted, my fiancé swooned, they were a huge hit all around.

These cute little pinwheels are a perfect appetizer to serve to any crowd – hungry football fans watching the game, special guests at your next dinner party, or even kiddos straight off the bus from school looking for a snack. You can even prep them ahead of time and freeze them to serve later (you may have to cook them a few minutes longer from a frozen state). Warning: these tasty little pastries will disappear quickly, you may want to make more than you think you’ll need!

  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, defrosted (such as Pepperidge Farms)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 ounces fresh spinach, chopped or torn into pieces
  • Sat & pepper, to taste
  • 1 ½ ounces Parmesan cheese, freshly & finely grated (I shred mine on the smallest holed side of a box grater)
  • 1 ounce crumbled Feta cheese
On a clean, dry surface sprinkle a small amount of flour to prevent sticking and lay down your sheet of defrosted puff pastry. Using a rolling pin, roll the pastry into a 10”x14” rectangle of even thickness.

In a large skillet or saute pan, bring the olive oil to medium heat. add the garlic and allow garlic to cook for about a minute. add the spinach and stir together. allow the spinach to cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally until wilted. add a couple shakes of your salt & pepper shakers (or to taste). Spread the spinach evenly across the surface of the rolled out puff pastry sheet. Sprinkle the Parmesan and Feta cheeses evenly over top of the spinach, covering the entire surface of the pastry.
