Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Pastry Bites

Ingredients & Variations

  • Crescent Roll Dough: Utilize pre-made crescent roll dough for simplicity. If your dough has perforations, ensure they are sealed by pinching them together. Sheet forms of crescent dough are also available and very convenient.
  • Cheeses: This recipe includes a mix of parmesan, mozzarella, and cream cheese, blending perfectly to create a creamy and cheesy filling. Mozzarella is used both within the mixture and as a topping.
  • Spinach: Opt for frozen spinach for ease; ensure it is thoroughly thawed and excess moisture is removed before use. Fresh spinach can be substituted but will require cooking down to achieve the correct consistency.
  • Artichokes: Half a can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped, is perfect for this recipe, adding a subtle tanginess to the bites.

Preparation Flexibility

  • Store-Bought Spinach Dip Option: For an even quicker preparation, you can substitute homemade dip with a quality store-bought spinach dip.
  • Advance Preparation: These bites can be assembled up to 24 hours in advance. Assemble according to the recipe, cover, and refrigerate. Bake as directed, allowing extra time if they’re cold from the fridge.

Storing Suggestions

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Freezing these bites is not recommended due to the texture changes in sour cream upon thawing.
