This recipe inspired by Kronk’s Spinach Puffs Recipe from the Emperors New Groove is a fun, easy, and delicious treat! Make them today.
3 cups chopped up spinach
1/4 cup gruyere cheese (you can add a bit more if you’d like)
1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
3 green onion sprigs
Puff pastry; for gluten free puff pastry I used Schar Gluten Free Puff Pastry. You can just use regular puff pastry if you don’t need to eat gluten free.
Heat your oven to the number indicated by the puff pastry you use. Schar’s is 400°F
Place some olive oil in a frying pain and allow it to heat up for a few minutes.
Add the chopped spinach and green onion to the pan. Add some salt and pepper. The salt will allow the spinach to release its water. It shouldn’t be in the pan for long, a few minutes at most. Add it to a bowl along with the cheese and egg yolk. Mix together.
Cut the puff pastry into circles and top them with the filling down the middle. Take the egg and beat it. Using a pastry brush, brush the sides of the pastry with an egg wash. Pinch the sides together where you brushed it and then fold them over to make sure they don’t burst open. Then brush the puffs all over with the egg wash. Place in the oven for 12 minutes. Remove and serve!
