For the first time in forever, I’ve been in the kitchen creating a Disney inspired recipe.. Pull the lever, Kronk!
That’s right, its a little less well known recipe today, but any fans of Emperor’s New Groove will know of Kronk’s famous spinach puffs. Yzma may not be a fan, but having recreated these little beauties for myself, I most certainly am, and I’m pleased to say they’re super easy to do!
You’re gonna need:
- A sheet of ready-roll puff pastry
- 1 cup of finely chopped spinach – I used a food processor to save time!
- 2 tbsp powdered parmesan cheese
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tsp olive oil
- A beaten egg, optional
- A mini muffin tray sprayed with FryLight oil
This recipe makes 8-10 puffs!
Preheat an oven to 180C.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the spinach, parmesan until evenly mixed. Crush the garlic clove into this mixture, add the oil and combine.
Unroll the pastry, and cut into 2×2 inch squares. Arrange the squares diagonally in the mini muffin holes, pressing them down into the dips, then fill with a teaspoon of the spinach mix.
Fold the corners in, and brush the top with the egg mix. Pop in the oven for 10-12 mins until golden brown.
If you’re feeling a little fancy, you can spread the mix onto the pastry sheet, roll it up like a Swiss roll and slice into spirals before baking!
These bites of deliciousness are best served warm, but will also keep in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week.
