Spanakopita Crescent Rolls

thI found this recipe on pinterest. It is fairly easy and kinda messy to put together. It makes 8 appetizer servings.






Spanakopita Crescent Rolls

1 container of Crescent Rolls (8 count)
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach (defrosted and drain all excess liquid from spinach)
4 ounces crumbled feta
3 green onions, chopped
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dry dill weed
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F.
In a medium size bowl, add feta and dill, set aside.  In a medium size sauce pan, heat olive oil on medium-high heat, add garlic and green onions – saute for 3-5 minutes.  Add defrosted/drained spinach to pan and mix the garlic, onions and spinach together. Once blended well, pour on top of the feta and dill.  Next add the lemon juice and mix everything together.

Place triangle crescent rolls on clean surface and add one heaping scoop (I use a medium size Pampered Chef Scooper) of spinach mixture to each crescent roll, fold and pinch openings closed.  Place rolls on an ungreased cookie sheet, place on middle rack of oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until rolls are golden brown.
