    Recipe Introduction

    Thaw: 40 minutes
    Prep: 20 minutes
    Bake: 15 minutes

    Serves: 20

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 of a 17.3 ounce package Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet)
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon water
    1/2 cup shredded Muenster cheese OR Monterey Jack cheese
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1 green onion, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 package (about 10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained


    Thaw the pastry sheet at room temperature for 40 minutes or until it's easy to handle. Heat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets or line with parchment paper.

    Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork. Stir the Muenster cheese, Parmesan cheese, onion and garlic powder in a medium bowl.

    Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Brush the pastry sheet with the egg mixture. Top with the cheese mixture and spinach. Starting at the short side closest to you, roll up like a jelly roll. Cut into 20 (1/2-inch) slices. Place the slices cut-side down on the baking sheets. Brush with the egg mixture.

    Bake for 15 minutes or until the swirls are golden. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Tip: Make sure to remove as much liquid as you can from the spinach before adding it to the pastry. If it's too wet, it may make the pastry soggy.
