  • 1 10 oz. package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well.
  • 1/2 lb. of Velveeta cheese
  • 1 TSP. fresh chopped garlic
  • 1/4 C of Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 2 8 oz. cans of Crescent Rolls (we use Pillsbury)
  • Cooking Spray


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In large saucepan, spray inside with cooking spray (including the sides).
  • Melt Velveeta cheese and garlic over low heat until smooth.
  • Stir in spinach until mixed well. Add breadcrumbs and stir until well-blended. Remove from heat.
  • Open 1 can of crescents rolls, separate the triangles. (I put the can in the freezer for a few minutes for a firmer dough). Using a butter knife, cut each triangle length-wise in half.
  • Spoon a heaping teaspoon of the spinach mixture on the widest part of a crescent triangle. Roll up.
  • Repeat for all dough triangles, including 2nd can of crescent rolls.
  • Place spinach crescents on greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
