My easy Spinach Puff Pastry recipe is a fancy finger food that’s easy to make and tastes incredible!
puff pastry frozen spinach butter shallot garlic nutmeg flour heavy cream white cheddar cheese parmesan bacon egg water
In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter, then add diced shallots and garlic and cook 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle flour into the skillet, whisking for 1-2 minutes until it lightly browns.
Add nutmeg, then slowly add heavy cream, whisking continuously, until the sauce begins to thicken, about 3-5 minutes.
Stir in white cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese.
Dice cooked bacon strips and add to the cheese sauce, reserving 2 stripsto top the pastries later. Stir until the cheese melts completely, then salt to taste.
Add spinach to the mixture and stir to combine.
Finally, remove from the heat and begin preparing your puff pastry. On a lightly floured surface, unfold the thawed puff pastry and roll each into a 12-inch square sheet.
Cut each pastry sheet into 9 even squares. Place into greased muffin cups, pressing gently on the bottoms and up the sides, so the corners point up.
Fill each cup with 2 Tablespoons of the creamed spinach mixture.
Top with remaining chopped bacon.
In a small bowl, mix egg and water to create an egg wash. Brush the egg wash over the top of the puff pastry, then add to the oven.
Bake 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Serve, and enjoy!
