Why you will love making this TikTok Viral Recipe.

Never have too many incredible appetizers – With the holidays just around the bend (and believe me, at 59 this morning getting up, fall is pressing in), there are tons of unforgettable get-togethers and celebrations about to happen!

While viral dip recipes are always welcome, this finger food recipe is worth adding to the menu. Quick and easy, full of flavor, spinach and feta are flavor-worthy contenders.

Where did this Feta Spinach Cheese Pie Recipe start? 

While Italian cheese pies like torta Pasqualina and Greek spinach pies like spanakopita are relatively popular, this mini spinach roll appetizer recipe is much easier and quicker to serve.

We initially saw this recipe idea on creator @eman_inthekitchen, and you should give her a great follow. See the full video below – 

Would we make spinach cheese pies again? 

Yes, absolutely. Plus, this idea of adding different flavors to rolls is an easy recipe to duplicate and could open up a whole world of custom recipes for your parties.

Additionally, I like how the pies are big, the size of your palm, vs. teeny bite-size ones. I gave some of these (cooled) to a friend, and her kids ate them all in one night.

Frozen Roll Tip: I thawed my rolls overnight in the fridge covered in plastic wrap. I knew that would ensure they were thawed completely vs. timing them for 2 hours as the original recipe said. 

Ingredients:

  • frozen dinner rolls
  • chopped onion & minced garlic
  • olive oil
  • chili powder, salt, ground black pepper
  • fresh spinach, chopped
  • eggs
  • mozzarella cheese and crumbled feta cheese

  3. Heat over medium heat until onions are tender, about 5 minutes.
