Recipe: Spinach and three cheese rolls

Kinderling News & Features

These Spinach and Three Cheese Rolls really need to come with a warning, as you won’t be able to stop yourself from eating just one – or three!

Along with Ricotta, these rolls also have the added cheesy goodness of feta and parmesan cheese which give them sooo much extra flavour and make them irresistible when they are just out of the oven.

These are freezer-friendly, so perfect for those times when you need prepped food up your sleeve. Plus, they’re very versatile, so they’re great for a snack, party food or for an easy weekend meal.

Spinach and three cheese rolls

Makes 32 rolls
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 500g of ricotta
  • 80g of parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 1 block of feta cheese - broken into small pieces
  • 100g of baby spinach leaves
  • 1 egg
  • 4 sheets of puff pastry – partially thawed
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of onion flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • sesame seeds – optional
  • 1 egg to brush the rolls with.

Instructions

  1. Line your two trays with baking paper and preheat your oven to 210 degrees.
  2. Place the ricotta, feta cheese, grated parmesan cheese, baby spinach leaves, 1 egg, nutmeg and salt and pepper into a large bowl and stir until all of the ingredients have combined (if you have a Thermomix, you can do this step on speed 4).
  3. Break the extra egg into a small bowl and lightly whisk.
  4. Place the partially thawed pastry sheets onto your bench and cut in half lengthways. Brush one edge of the pastry with a little of the egg before using a spoon to add an approximately 3cm wide line of mixture down the centre of the pasty.
  5. Roll the pastry (starting from the edge without the egg) to enclose the filling.
  6. Slice the Spinach and Three Cheese Rolls into four equal parts and brush with a little more of the beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  7. Repeat process until all the pastry and Spinach and cheese mixture has been used.
  8. Place the Spinach and Three Cheese Rolls into the oven to cook for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden and crispy.
