Mushroom & Spinach Pinwheels

By apanda

  • I know this is a little work, but so worth the effort! Similar to a nutroll. The recipe makes 30 servings. (I know others that have used refrigerated crescent roll dough, you just have to adjust the final nutritional numbers)

  • Dough:

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • Filling:

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped mushrooms

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  1. In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and 2/3 cup butter. Mix in 2 cups flour, a teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda; beat well. Divide dough into two balls; wrap in plastic wrap. Chill 30 to 60 minutes or until pastry is easy to handle.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  3. Heat spinach in large frying pan over medium-low heat; drain. Squeeze out excess liquid; set aside.

  4. In a large frying pan, melt the 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in mushrooms and onion. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Mix in spinach, remaining 1 tablespoon flour, oregano, salt, lemon juice and garlic powder. Cook and stir until mixture thickens. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Set aside to cool.

  5. On floured surface, roll a pastry ball into a 12x7-inch rectangle. Spread with half the spinach mixture to within 1/2 inch of edges. Starting with a short side, roll up dough and filling, jelly-roll style. Moisten edges with water; pinch to seal. Repeat with remaining pastry. Cover; chill 1 hour. Slice logs into 1/2-inch thick slices. Place on ungreased baking sheets.

  6. Bake 20 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire racks; cool.

I like makig things look like I put a little work into them. They sound scrumptious and I am willing to put the extra time into this. I love mushrooms. Another great ideas for the Superbowl…Debe

You are right, it does take a little extra work, but the recipe is worth it. The extra work keeps the carbs low and brings a better flavor to the dish.
