Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Split crescent dough in half along center perforation. Flatten one rectangle, sealing perforations. Spread with 1/4 of the cheese spread and sprinkle with spinach. Starting with long side, roll dough up, rolling back and forth several times to seal edges. Cut into 3/4 inch slices (about 15 slices per roll). Arrange the slices one inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Continue making the crescent roll ups until all of the ingredients are used.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve immediately or keep warm on a warming tray.

These are great, espeically as a vegetarian option for a hot appetizer. One suggestion: after rolling spinach and dough up, put it in the freezer for 15 minutes, or refrigerate for as long as you like, they are much easier to cut that way. I also put extra cheese spread on.

I've been making these as party appetizers for a few years now. I use fresh baby spinach and the light alouette garlic and herb cheese spread. Sometimes, I put in a few very thin slices of virginia baked ham from the deli as well. They are always a hit. I appreciate the idea to refrigerate them before slicing. I've always found them hard to slice, but I'd never thought of that. Thanks for the suggestion- I'll try it next time!

Great idea! I modified it a bit... sauteed diced ham, onion, and mushrooms in olive oil, then added to half of spinach mixture before placing on crescent roll dough. I also added some shredded cheese to the mixture, plus some oregano & ground black pepper. I made "mini" pinwheels, then topped with swiss cheese before baking. Had to bake an extra 5-6 minutes to get them cooked through and golden brown, but they were great! Especially good served with a creamy dressing/dip, like Ranch, dill, or Caesar. Will definitely make again!
