Oh, these were yummy! I prefer these to regular sausage rolls any day. Of course my husband won’t touch them with a barge pole but my daughter and I don’t mind, all the more for us! They have the added bonus of making you feel like you are doing something healthy for yourself, going a little veggie for the day.
So go steam some spinach and team it with copious amounts of cheese and go have an undeserved but all the more satisfying health kick!
Cheese and Spinach Rolls
180 g Feta cheese, cubed
1 x 250 g packet frozen spinach (I used 2 bags of fresh and steamed them myself)
2 large potatoes
4 eggs, lightly beaten
4 shallots, finely sliced (I used half a red onion)
½ cup grated tasty cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 sheets frozen puff pastry, partially thawed
Preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 trays with baking paper.
Peel potatoes and cook in boiling water until tender. Mash. (I never peel)
Defrost frozen spinach according to directions on packet. (or steam your own)
Combine all ingredients in bowl and season with salt and pepper if desired.
Cut pastry sheets in half. Spoon mixture evenly along long edge of each pastry strip, ensuring the mixture is evenly spread between the 8 pastry strips. Roll up to enclose filling and form rolls.
Place rolls seam side down on the baking trays then brush tops with beaten egg or milk.
Cut each roll diagonally in half.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.
