Easy to Make Spinach Cheese Rolls with a Greek Flair

Whether you want them as part of a meal, as an appetizer, or for a potluck, this wonderful little spinach rolls are easy and delicious. They are made with frozen bread rolls which makes them easy enough for any cook.


1 loaf (1 lb) frozen bread dough

1 pkg (10-oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

4 green onions, thinly sliced

1 tsp dried dill weed

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp black pepper

Thaw bread dough according to the package directions. Spray 15 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

Roll out dough on a floured surface to a 15 x 9-inch rectangle. (If the dough is springy and hard to work with, cover with plastic wrap and let rest 5 minutes.) Have the long edge of the rectangle running parallel to the edge of the work surface so it will be easier to work with.

In a large bowl, combine the spinach, cheeses, green onions, dill weed, garlic powder, and pepper; mix well. Sprinkle the mixture over the dough to within 1-inch of the long edges. Starting with long edge, roll up snuggly. Pinch the seam closed. With the seam side down, roll into 1-inch slices using a serrated knife. Place slices, cut side up, into the muffin cups. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rolls stand for 30 minutes in a warm place. Rolls should become slightly puffy.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. Maybe be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

NOTE: Theses rolls make good appetizers, snacks, or go great with soups and stews.
