Spinach Puffs Recipe

 Spinach Puffs 


1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
1/2 cup carrots, finely chopped
1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon salt
4 oz. Swiss cheese, shredded (1 cup)
1 package (17.25 ounces) frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 425 F. Cover 12x15" Rectangle baking sheet. Place drained spinach** on paper towels and press to remove excess moisture. Chop carrots. Place carrots, onion,
mayonnaise and seasonings in large mixing bowl. Add cheese into bowl and mix well. Lightly sprinkle counter or other surface with flour to roll out pastry. Roll out one pastry
sheet into a 12-inch square. (Do not separate squares.) Using a tablespoon, place a scant scoop spinach mixture in center of each square. Flatten slightly with back of spoon.
Combine egg and water. Brush egg mixture over cut lines in pastry and around outside edge of large square. For each appetizer, bring two opposite corners of each square up and over filling, pinch together firmly and twist. Place on Baking sheet. Brush appetizers with egg mixture.
Brush appetizers with egg mixture. Bake 17-18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to serving platter using a small Spatula. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet and spinach
mixture. Serve warm.

**The spinach mixture can be made ahead of time and refrigerated- but assemble and bake the
puffs just before serving.
