The One Spinach Appetizer Puff

"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.)"

Ready In:




  • Break egg into a bowl and beat with a whisk for 30 seconds.
  • Add remaining ingredients and combine with a wooden spoon until well mixed.
  • Let batter sit while greasing a mini-muffin pan and preheating oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spoon batter into the mini-muffin pan to 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
  • 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!

    I made these as a snack for the family the other night. We love the combinations of flavor, but I think I squeezed the spinach way too dry, because the puffs weren't as moist as I'd like, so when I make them again I'll make sure the batter has a little more liquid in it. I also froze some and they came out wonderful after reheating. Thanks for posting this great recipe.

    I loved it! I did cut down on the garlic powder, only 1/4 tsp and added 1/4 onion powder, a personal preference and added 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper. I had a very large egg and so added 1/2 tsp more baking powder and a little more cheese and flour. I made 34 mini puffs. Delicious! Thanks for posting. My pkg of frozen spinach was 10 ozs. so I used it all instead of a 8 oz. cup. I will definitely make again. This is a great teenager snack!
