I found this recipe in Taste of Home's Quick Cooking. It is an easy yet delicious appetizer, and my family loves it even my son who dislikes spinach!

These were fabulous! I didn't measure the ingredients, just used what worked/looked good. I wasn't able to serve them while still warm but they were still great and were gone in no time (and a double batch too!) I cut each roll into just 4 slices which seemed to work just fine. Very popular with the kids at the party I took them to. Thanks for the recipe!

These were pretty good. I didn't serve them as appetizers though. I split them with my dinner companion and we had a simple bowl of cream of broccoli soup. They were very very good dipped in the soup and then popped in the mouth.I used a cheap generic croissant brand that I had in the fridge but I am sure they would have been waaaay better with a good brand like Pillsbury. I may make these someday with phyllo dough.
