The One Spinach Appetizer Puff

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

One of each ingredient (almost) makes this recipe easy to make. Perfect for any party or even to make a regular dinner a bit more special. These can be made ahead and kept in the freezer. When ready to serve, just pop in an oven or toaster oven for 5-10 minutes until heated through. (personally, I think these taste better when frozen and then reheated.)


  1. Break egg into a bowl and beat with a whisk for 30 seconds.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and combine with a wooden spoon until well mixed.
  3. Let batter sit while greasing a mini-muffin pan and preheating oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Spoon batter into the mini-muffin pan to 3/4 full.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
  6. TIP: There will be leftover batter after filling the 24 - mini muffin pan. If you don't have a second pan, and you don't want to wait for the first batch to finish, use small foil tart cups for the last few, they may take a bit longer to cook. However, since these will disappear quickly, and they can be frozen, it is much easier to just double the recipe and just make 2 1/2 - 3 pans.

Very tasty little spinach appetizers! I couldnt find grated asiago cheese so I used a parmesan blend that had the asiago in it. Added some fresh ground black pepper and a touch of lemon pepper. Froze the leftovers in a freezer bag and will reheat them in the oven when I make a big breakfast for the family. Made and reviewed for the Let's P-A-R-T-Y! December Cooking Event

These were really good! I took your advice and froze the leftovers and tried them reheated in the toaster oven. I am glad I did! Yesterday I hadn't liked these as well. The flavor was good, but they seemed a little rubbery. But reheating them in the toaster over left them delicious and crisp. Thanks for posting! ~Sue

I made these for my DBF's 50th B-day last month. They were very quick and easy to do. They were well received by all our friends. Will probably make again!
