Ingredients

1 large
egg (for egg wash)
1 Tbsp
filtered water
1/2 c
blend shredded cheese of your choice
1/4 c
grated romano cheese
1 large
green onion chopped
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
all purpose flour
1
sheet puff pastry, thawed (i use trader joe's)
1-10 oz. pkg
frozen spinach, thawed, drained and chopped

Step-By-Step

1Heat oven to 400'F. Beat the egg and 1 tbsp. water to make an egg wash. Set aside.

2Stir the cheeses together with the onion and garlic powder in a small bowl.

3Sprinkle the flour on your work surface and roll the pastry out the long way to about 12-14".

4Brush the sheet with your egg wash and top with the cheese and the spinach. Starting at the short side roll up tightly like a jelly roll. Cut into slices about 1/2" wide.

5Place the slices cut side down on a parchment covered baking sheet. Brush the slices with the egg wash and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

6Remove the pastries onto a wire rack and cool for at least 10 minutes.

7Make sure you wring out the thawed spinach well. I put it in a tea towel and twisted the ends to remove the water from the spinach. This works well if you have a friend to help twist the towel. If the spinach isn't dried out it will make the pastry soggy. Serve warm or cold.

8Enjoy!
