Looking for a twist on boring croissants? I love croissants, probably more than the next person... but some times you want to change things up and this packs in more nutrients and flavor. You can make these for appetizers or your bread basket for dinner. Make sure you get one for yourself, they will disappear fast!
2 cups spinach
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 oz. cream cheese (reduced fat)
1 container of crescent (precut or sheet)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute spinach and garlic for a few minutes on low heat to wilt the spinach down a bit.
2. Roll out the crescents on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread the spinach over the entire crescent and add small dollops of cream cheese on top.
3. Roll up the crescent and cut into eight slices. Arrange slices on baking sheet so you can see the spinach swirl (pinwheel shape). Bake for 15 minutes or until croissants are lightly browned on top.
