Spinach Cheese Rolls

While peeping into my freezer I came across puff pastry sheets and I grabbed them out as the first step. I got inspired by the recipe given on the pepperidge farm puff pastry box which called for spinach, eggs and cheese. I made few changes and made my own spinach cheese rolls. I’ve been a puff pastry lover ever since I was a kid. When it was stuffed with spinach and cheese it tasted even more delicious. It’s crispy, crunchy and makes a perfect evening snack or for brunch just like the sweet puff pastry.

I am off to India for two months. I can’t wait to spend time with my wonderful family and my cute niece. So in India it’s going to be “cooking with my mom” for the next two months. Well, this is so not true, it’s going to be “Thas gobbling up mom’s yummy food”. Whenever I get a chance I’ll post more recipes from India. Till then, everyone have fun cooking and baking!
