Yes, More Pinwheels!
Extra extra, read all about it! Spinach and Feta Pinwheels are here! So that may have been a little corny, okay, a lot corny but I have always wanted to say that line, so I committed to it, ha. Yes, I am a bit silly and sometimes dramatic, but I have warned you guys before in older posts.
If you are new, then my apologies for your first crash course with my goofy side. Now, going forward you can to be on the look out for that side of me, and yes it does rear its head quite often around here. I do try to show some restraint from time to time though. You’re welcome for that, ha!
So you might be thinking, more pinwheels, huh? Yes, more pinwheels! After all, I did promise a couple of weeks ago in my new Bacon and Ranch Pinwheels recipe post that I would be sharing another recipe. This one is delightful and differs from all three of my earlier pinwheel recipes because it is totally meatless.
It’s about time I tried a veggie one, right? Yep, I thought so too, and I was surprised to find these are my favorite ones yet!
Pinwheels Gone Greek!
I have always loved spinach and Feta Cheese. It is a classic combo that used in Greek dishes such as Spanikopita. That traditional spinach pie is delicious and highlights the leafy spinach greens, feta cheese, and onions or scallions.
It is usually layered between sheets of feathery light Phyllo dough and tons of butter. It is so amazing you guys! Amazing enough that even though the pastry is far from low carb, I splurge on it every year when we attend the Greek Food Festival in Little Rock, AR.
With that perfection in mind, I began to look toward my old stand by, the cheese dough, to bring me a lower carb and gluten-free version of my beloved spinach and feta pastry. I knew, of course, that the tender Phyllo dough would not be easily mimicked by the denser cheese pastry, but the one thing I did know is that the flavors of the spinach and feta would marry nicely with the tender cheese dough that I use with my other pinwheels recipes.
Did I mention this is my fourth pinwheel recipe? Yes, I am little obsessed with pinwheels, but you guys, there are just so many delicious possibilities out there for filling these little treats. So far I have used sausage, bacon, pepperoni, and sauce, and now spinach and cheese.
Hey, some may think that is overkill, but I look at it like this, I have now established four varieties of pinwheels that would make up a pretty amazing party tray! Just think about it for a minute, how awesome would it be to set out a tray of warm and tasty pinwheels for your guests? Nobody will ever guess they are low carb and gluten-free, I promise!
