Tips for Making Bacon Spinach Pinwheels

It may be easier to roll the puff pastry using a silicone baking mat. Start with cold pastry so it doesn’t stick.

These are easier to slice into portions if your cheeses are still cold. Be sure to use a very sharp knife!

Bacon Spinach Pinwheels

Yields: 15-20 pinwheels

Ingredients:

1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed/defrosted according to the package’s directions
2 tbsp butter
2 cups fresh spinach
¼ cup onion, diced
5 oz. cream cheese, softened
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
3-4 cooked bacon strips

Note: The measurements of ingredients for this recipe is to cater to a puff pastry sheet that’s about 9×11 inches in size.

 

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place puff pastry on a baking sheet that’s lined with parchment paper – set aside.

Melt butter over medium heat in a frying pan. Add onions and allow to sweat.

 

 

Add spinach and cook, mixing occasionally.

Remove onion and spinach from heat.

In a large bowl, fold together onion, spinach, and cream cheese.

Crumble the bacon into the mixture and fold more.

 

 

Using an offset spatula, spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on the puff pastry, leaving one inch from the end.

Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Starting from the top (in this case, the shorter side of the rectangle), roll the puff pastry – the end that has no spread will be the portion that seals the roll.

 

 

Cut the roll to get pinwheels that are about ½ inch wide. Place gently on lined baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
