Spinach Spirals Recipe

“This is a delicious and easy roll for a side dish or just by itself,” Isabel Mancini attests from Youngstown, Ohio. “Someone always asks for the recipe, so I bring printed copies whenever I take it to a potluck.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:7 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the spinach, Monterey Jack cheese, egg and onion. On a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, roll pizza dough into a 14-in. x 10-in. rectangle; seal any holes. Spread spinach mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • 2. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; seal ends and place seam side down. Brush with butter; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 400° for 25-27 minutes or until golden brown. Slice and serve warm. Yield: 14 slices.
