Spinach and cheese are the perfect pair and these rolls are spectacular. Add pastry and you can’t really go wrong!
This recipe is quick to make and can be frozen prior to cooking, making it perfect to prep in advance for a party or barbecue, an easy lunch, dinner or snack for the kids.
These morsels are great for lunch boxes (the pastry will soften upon cooling but my kids don’t care!)
How to make Spinach and Three Cheese Rolls
(Scroll down for the full recipe)
The filling for these Spinach and Cheese Rolls is a simple mix of the following:
Ricotta, Fetta and Parmesan cheeses
These ingredients are blitzed and combined in the thermie, then used to fill puff pastry. You’ll need four sheets of puff pastry, each halved. This is how they are filled and rolled:
Once all of the rolls are constructed, lay seam-side down and brush with egg. This gives the rolls a lovely golden brown colouring when baked. The egg also helps the sesame seeds stick to the pastry.
You can slice the long rolls into any size you like! I usually cut each into six. This makes a lot of Spinach and Cheese Rolls, but they are never wasted around here!
Lay them on lined trays and bake until golden. Here they are going into the oven…
Enjoy with or without sauce, pickles or chutney. I highly recommend the following recipes for delicious sauces:
Spinach and Three Cheese Rolls
- 4 sheets puff pastry Gluten free if required
- 40 g Parmesan cheese diced 1.5cm
- 30 g spring onion roughly chopped
- 5 g fresh parsley
- 1 garlic clove
- 120 g baby spinach
- 400 g fresh ricotta cheese from the deli section
- 80 g fetta cheese diced 1.5cm
- 2 eggs + another to brush the tops of the rolls
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- sesame seeds or poppyseeds
- Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Line two large trays with baking paper. Lay out the pastry on your clean bench top to defrost slightly while you make the filling.
- Place Parmesan, spring onion, parsley and garlic in mixer bowl. Blitz 5 seconds/speed 7/MC on. Scrape down bowl.
- Add (in this order) spinach, ricotta, feta, eggs and pepper. Blend 40 seconds/speed 4/MC on, or until well combined. You may need to use the spatula that was supplied with your machine to assist with this step.
- Halve each piece of pastry down the middle, to form two rectangles per sheet. Divide the spinach/cheese mixture evenly between each rectangle of pastry, distributing it down the length of each. Roll to enclose, forming eight long logs.
- With the logs seam side down, brush the tops with the beaten egg, then sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds. Using a very sharp knife, divide each log into six small rolls then transfer to the trays.
- Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden.
