Print  Friendly and PDF
These swirls look like a work of art, don't they? It makes one think that I spent ages to make this, doesn't it? Wrong. It took me under 30 minutes to make this. A very tempting appetizer that pretty much pleases all your senses.Oh, the base recipe is from the Pepperidge Farm package.
  • 1 sheet Pepperidge Farm Puff-Pastry 
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Monterey Jack or Muenster Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 3 cup Spinach, Chopped
  • 4 tbsp Red Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cracked pepper
  • Thaw the puff pastry sheet for 30-40 minutes.
  • Unroll the pastry sheet on a slightly dusted surface.
  • Mix both the cheese with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Microwave the Spinach with a few sprinkles of water. Once wilted, squeeze the moisture from it and mix it with chopped red onion. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Whisk the egg with a tbsp of water. Using a pastry brush, brush the pastry with a thin layer of egg mixture.
  • Sprinkle the pastry with cheese mixture and the layer it with spinach-onion mixture.
  • Gently roll the pastry, jelly-roll style and thin cut into 1/2-inch wheels.
  • Place the wheels on a greased baking sheet, cut side down.
  • Brush the top with egg mixture. 
  • Bake for 20 minutes or till the edges are slightly browned.
  • Serve warm
Makes 14-15 Swirls

  26. @Sumi - The swirls once assembled can be frozen in layers between sheets of waxed paper for upto a month. Should be baked without thawing. In this case, baking time will be longer.
    Haven't tried this though, but it can be attempted.
