Spinach Feta Pinwheels

Throwback Thursday to these pinwheels- please excuse the photo quality as it was taken with a really old cellphone and put through some extreme filters.  These can be made using pastry dough or croissant dough I used one packet of pre-made Croissant Dough.  One packet made 12 of these pinwheels, they look really pretty and taste great warm or cold.  If you like a little bit more spice add 1 tsp of red chili flakes.

Spinach Feta Pinwheels

Ingredients:
1 packet of croissant dough or puff pastry
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 medium onion, diced
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
​1 tsp red chili flakes (optional)
¼ tsp nutmeg
150g spinach, roughly chopped
50g feta cheese, crumbled

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven, as per the package directions on the dough you’re using.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium heat and add the garlic and onions then sauté until they’re translucent but not brown.
  3. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg then add the spinach and cook, stirring occasionally until the spinach is wilted.
  4. Roll out the dough then spread the spinach over it as well as the crumbled feta cheese.
  5. Roll the dough back up tightly before cutting it into pieces that are about 1 inch thick. I had to use a piece of string to cut the slices because using a knife just crushed everything together.
  6. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10-15 minutes until they’re a light golden brown.
