Warm and Cheesy Spinach Bites

Spinach Bites

My Warm and Cheesy Spinach Bites feature asiago, mozzarella, and cream cheese. The aromatic touch of nutmeg is trully “worth its weight in gold”.

The rich and creamy spinach clouds will delight any palette. I am particularly grateful that kids love these fun shaped bites. OMG, they are eating spinach!

This vegetarian starter is really easy to prepare. Using frozen puff pastry and frozen spinach will get you to the finish line in a jiffy. Once these Warm and Cheesy Spinach bites come out of the oven, enjoy them with a glass of white wine or a bottle of lager.

I strongly suggest you double the recipe because one is never enough. Who am I kidding? Two are not enough!
