When I think of making cocktail/finger foods for a gathering the first thing that enters my mind is something made out of puff pastry. I had a box in the freezer and on it was a recipe for Spinach-Cheese Swirls. Now, I could have made the recipe to the letter but I decided to change it up a little bit. I’m sure they would have been just great if I would have made them the way it was on the box but at the same time I’m glad I went my own direction because they turned out really good.
1 Sheet - Puff Pastry
1 - Egg
1 Tbs. - Water
1/4 C. - Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 C. - Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
1/4 C. - Parmesan Cheese Powder
2 Tbs. - Chives (Dry)
1/2 Tbs. - Johnny’s Garlic Season
Thaw pastry sheet at room temperature for 30-40 minutes. Heat oven to 400 degrees, then line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir the egg and water in a small bowl, mix together the cheeses, garlic season and chives. Unfold the pastry sheet on some wax paper and brush it with the egg mixture, top with the cheese mixture and start rolling the pastry from the short side and roll it up like a jelly roll. Cut into 20 (½ inch) slices. Place slices cut side down on the baking sheet and brush with more of the egg mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown, serve warm or at room temperature.
