It feels like forever since I posted. Today I finally perfected Cheesy Spinach Scrolls. My neighbour made these a few weeks ago and it was so delicious.
Cheesy Spinach Scrolls
I couldn’t get enough of them. However, I tried to make them myself. It didn’t taste as delicious as hers and I was so disappointed.
A few days ago she called me over to give me a little lesson. And wow, what a difference it makes to just to change a few things.
These Cheesy Spinach Scrolls are super delicious. I can’t get enough of them.
How to make them
Firstly there was no cooking involved for the filling. Exactly what I love. No cooking suits me fine.
You pour 2 kettles of boiled water over the spinach until it wilts. Wait for it to cool a little.
The spinach is then chopped up and you mix the cheese in. Filling is spread onto the pastry.
Top with more cheese and it’s rolled into a swiss roll shape. Cut into pieces and baked.
Tips to make them perfect
The first time I was making them I rolled them a little too tight so I didn’t get that flakiness I was looking for. So please do not roll them too tightly.
Trust me the filling won’t pop out. Secondly I got a little after taste from the chilli which I loved.
However, I made the mistake of mixing the chilli flakes into the mixture. Sprinkling it on to the baking sheet and placing the pastry on the top makes it heavenly.
I also did not add enough feta the first time so I didn’t quite get that saltiness I was looking for so please don’t use less feta.
The feta makes all the difference to these Cheesy Spinach Scrolls.
Baking the Cheesy Pizza Scrolls
If you don’t want to bake them immediately I suggest you place them on a tray and freeze them. Once frozen remove them in then store them in an airtight container or a ziplock bag.
You can freeze them up to a month. If they will last that long. I prefer not to freeze stuff for more than a month so this is just my recommendation.
They make great lunchbox treats and great as appetizers too. If you can try making a spicy dip to go with. You will not regret it.
I hope you love these as much as we do. It definitely is my new favourite treat.
If you love this recipe as much as I do please drop a comment and leave a star rating. It is always appreciated.
