Spinach Feta Stuffed Crescents Tips
- Be sure to squeeze the spinach really well before adding it to the feta mixture. Otherwise, your crescents will be too wet and won’t hold together well.
- I like to use pre-shredded cheese for this recipe because it’s easier and less messy. But you can definitely shred your own cheese if you prefer.
- You can use either fresh or frozen spinach for this recipe. If you use frozen spinach, just be sure to thaw it first and squeeze out all the excess water before adding it to the feta mixture.
- These crescents can be served warm or cold. If you’re serving them cold, I recommend reheating them for a few minutes in the oven or microwave before serving.
- These crescents can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you’re ready to bake them. Just be sure to let them thaw completely before baking.
Spinach Feta Stuffed Crescents Variations
- If you’re not a fan of spinach, you can substitute another leafy green, such as kale or Swiss chard.
- If you don’t like feta cheese, you can use another type of cheese in its place. Some good options include ricotta, mozzarella, or Parmesan.
- Instead of using crescent rolls, you could try using puff pastry dough or phyllo dough.
- For a little extra flavor, you could add some chopped herbs to the spinach-feta mixture. Some good options include basil, oregano, or thyme.
- You could also add some diced onion or garlic to the spinach-feta mixture for an extra flavor boost.
