Spinach & Feta Pinwheels

Spinach & feta pinwheels really are just the best little things. They’re incredibly easy to make (especially when you use store-bought puff pastry) and boy oh boy, they taste good. Like really, really good.

Spinach & Feta Pinwheels

This version of my Spinach & Feta Pinwheels takes 15 minutes to make and about 15 minutes to cook. That means that you can be eating the yummiest little savoury bites in no time at all.

To make sure your pinwheels stay super crispy, it’s really important to strain all of the liquid out of the defrosted spinach. You’ll be amazed at how much liquid comes out! The drier you can get the spinach – the crispier your pinwheels will be. And when it comes to pinwheels, crispy wins every single time.

I like to use a combination of feta and parmesan cheese because you get the most delicious flavour. You could of course just use one type of cheese, or even cheddar cheese, but this combination really is my fave.

Spinach & Feta Pinwheels

Before baking the spinach & feta pinwheels, brush over a little bit of lightly whisked egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds. The seeds are completely optional, but I just think it makes them look pretty. And that’s totally important, right!?

You can eat these straight out of the oven (OMG soooo good!), or let them cool completely and pop them into an airtight container. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months – which is fab, because it means you have a handy little snack whenever you need it!
