Spinach and Cheese Cups
What's your Take?

I love to cook, I cook out of recipe books a lot but I also like to experiment with my own, the fun part is that I get to post them here, that way they will be recorded. So, lately I've been excited with crescent roll dough and having fun creating new recipes with it. 

I wanted to make something with the mini muffin tray, since it's easy to form a shape there so I came up with these spinach and cheese cups. The amazing part was that the kids loved them which I thought they wouldn't. I think these can be done quickly for guests or to take to a potluck or even to send on the kid's lunchbox, they are multi-purpose!

What you'll need

  • 1 8z can of crescent roll dough
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen spinach (thawed)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic paste
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of grated parmesan cheese

How to make it

  1. Spinach Cups step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into 4 squares. Then cut each square into 6 little squares.

  2. Spinach Cups step 2

    In a pan, heat the olive oil and add the onion, salt and garlic and sauté until soft and translucent. Then add the spinach and sauté until is all heated. Place in a bowl and combine with the cream cheese.

  3. Spinach Cups step 3

    Press dough squares into mini muffin tray cups, it won't fill the hole completely but it's ok. 

  4. Spinach Cups step 4

    Fill each cup with the spinach and cheese mix and top with a little bit of parmesan.

  5. Spinach Cups step 5

    Bake for 12 minutes and the broil on low for 2 minutes. Take them out of the oven and serve right away!
