How To Make brocolli pinwheels

  • 1
    Thaw all frozen ingredents
  • 2
    Chop broccoli into very fine chop. I use my food processor.
  • 3
    Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the broccoli. (I use a clean kitchen towel, put the broccoli in the middle, gather up the edges and wring out over the sink.)
  • 4
    Mix broccoli and all other ingredents, except dough and eggwash. Set aside.
  • 5
    With sharp knife cut dough in half horizontally, (resembeling a book.)
  • 6
    Cut each side of dough again horizontally
  • 7
    Place the 4 pieces of dough, long sides touching, to form a rectangle. Press sides together. Pat dough to even out thickness.
  • 8
    Spread broccoli mixture evenly over dough.
  • 9
    Starting from the longest side , roll into a jelly roll, pinching long edge closed.
  • 10
    Cut into rounds about 1-1 1/2 inch thick and place directly into a buttered pan.
  • 11
    Let rise until doubled in size.
  • 12
    Bake at 350* 30 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. > NOTE< brush with eggwash - 1 Tablespoon water mixed with 1 egg - 5-7 minutes before done.
