spinach and cheese appetizer

Holiday season is here and most hostesses like to have a few easy appetizers to serve to guests, as they are waiting for the holiday meal. This is one of those easy recipes that have been around for a long time, but I have never featured on my blog.

I am not sure if this is healthy, based on the use of a refrigerated crescent roll dough, however; I tried the reduced fat version of the dough, and the results were just as tasty.  Here are the easy directions, with the option of using a variety of shredded cheese flavors.

Open a tube of crescent dough and place on waxed paper, stretching to both close the seams and elongate to a 12 inch rectangle.  Top the dough with thawed and drained frozen spinach and about 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.  Season with salt and pepper to taste or if desired.  Roll into a log from the more narrow end of the roll.

Slice into eight wheels.  Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven on a parchment lined pan or a silpat mat for 15 to 20 minutes until browned.

Serve hot.
