Muenster and Spinach Pinwheels #SundaySupper #HolidayDrinksandAppetizers


  • Oh, boy, were these Muenster and Spinach Pinwheels ever tasty! Even the two cold leftovers in the fridge the day after I served them to my book club tasted wonderful. This is an uncomplicated recipe which yields an impressive, gourmet appetizer. Just use a good quality puff pastry and you’ll receive high praise with minimal effort. You can shake up the cheese, add a layer of prosciutto…the options are endless. If you’re hosting a New Year’s Eve party this year, you may want to whip these up. And if you’re not, just make sure to try these cheesy spirals…they won’t disappoint.


     

    The Sunday Supper Team is having a Holiday Cocktails and Appetizers party and we would love to have you join us this week!  We have an amazing assortment of recipes to put together a fabulous holiday party on any budget.  We are honored to have Conni from The Foodie Army Wife hosting our Party.

  1. Yes, it seems a nice treat for a girls party:) you really are good at it:) have a blessed Sunday.

  2. I love how easy puff pastry makes appies – this flavour combination sounds delicious!

  3. I have never heard of this one, but it sounds pretty delicious.

  4. Thank you for this ever-so-elegant but do-able recipe, Liz.

    Looking forward to baking these Muenster Spinach Pinwheels and eating them!

  5. Happier Than A Pig in Mud says:

    Very pretty and mighty tasty I’m sure:@)

  6. Before you know it you ate half of them and don´t even want to eat the real dinner. Gorgeous! And I bet they freeze so well too.

  7. These are hard days in which to try and do life ‘normally,’ aren’t they. I feel more than a bit guilty going through life as usual when the families up north are dealing with so much loss and grief. The spirals do look delicious though, and we DO have to eat and continue living. If we don’t do these things, they win.

  8. Muenster is such a flavorful cheese. This is a great appetizer or even lunch for me!

  9. Any time you combine cheese and puff pastry I’ll be the first one on line! :)

  10. Lizzy , these cheesy pinwheels look pretty tasty ! Love it !

  11. carol | a cup of mascarpone says:

    Happy Sunday, Lizzy! These pinwheels look absolutely incredible!

  12. We love your beautiful appetizer, and can envision making it with other greens as well — perhaps chard, or beet greens, or even mustard or turnip greens. We’re going to feature this on our Facebook page and link here so people can see how you made it, and your lovely photography. If you wish, come LIKE us on Facebook for more recipes and tips on super healthy greens like kale, chard, beet, mustard, turnip, collard, escarole, dandelion and other green leafies.

    Hi Lizzy, the pinwheels look incredibly delicious! Hope to try it out one day!

  17. These look and sound great Liz! You can’t go wrong with puff pastry!

  18. Yum! I’m not sure any would make it to the serving plate ;)

  19. Dufour puff pastry is the best commercial brand I’ve ever used. And this looks so wonderful, nothing but the best is good enough! Nice flavors, and it looks so great. And thank you for your thoughts about the shooting – such a tragic event, and not posting on Monday is a terrific idea.

  20. These are the perfect party food.

  23. These look wonderful Lizzy! Perfect for the holiday!

  24. I am a big fan of easy puff pastry recipes so this is so up my alley. I am not sure I have ever seen savory pinwhel. Bookmarked! A day of “online silence” is a wonderful way to support those in need.

  25. Belinda @zomppa says:

  47. Oh! I love this! Looks so appetizing & lovely! YUM!

  48. These look great!!! I noticed you said the leftovers tasted awesome the next day…..do you think these could be made earlier in the day and brought to a Christmas event a couple hours later at room temp? (think they would they get too mushy or harden up??) Thanks for this easy recipe!

  49. What a fun appetizer – love the flavors in this one!

  50. It doesn’t look like leftovers. Looks really wonderful! Great idea!

  53. Mmm…I love puff pastry! Thanks for a fantastically chic, easy and endlessly adaptable recipe.

  54. Will there be a time when you’ll post all of the recipes from the party? I see several items that I’d like to know how to make! Fingers crossed…

    • Hi, Karii,

      If you mean recipes from my book club gathering, they all will be shared before the end of the month. If you mean the other Sunday Supper posts, the links are all at the bottom of this post…there are tons of great ideas!

  55. I love pinwheels, they always turn out so pretty. Love the cheese and spinach combination.

  56. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Gosh, I wish I could help! I had a friend redesign my blog and she added all my features. I am not techy at all! Sorry!

  57. They turned out great. And the goat cheese ones were great too.

  58. They cought my eyes, looks so delicious, and the recipe looks simple to bake.
    It is nice to bake these when friends are coming around!
    Thank you :)

  59. These are in the oven now. I used cheddar cheese instead and added crumbled bacon. My only problem is that I HATE puff pastry. When cutting the slices, the pastry just flaked off and it all fell about. I’m sure it will still taste good, but its definitely not presentable. Maybe I’m doing something wrong, but no more puff pastry for me! I’ll be using cresent rolls from now on.

  60. Older'n Dirt says:

    No comment on the recipe, I’ve not made it yet, but a tip on how to get that “very, very dry spinach.” I use my potato ricer. Put the plate in with the smallest holes in it, add the spinach and squeeze. Driest spinach you’ll ever get out of a frozen package.
