It’s not even Halloween yet, but it might not be too early to start brainstorming your holiday dinner menu! We’ve shared several foodier recipes on Facebook way back when it was still sunny and warm out! We thought it might be time to dust them off as many of them would be perfect appetizer options if you’re planning on hosting a little dinner party! Hey, even if it’s just for your monthly book club or ladies night in, these are a few simple ideas that will definitely wow your guests, starting with this platter of Spinach Stuffed Party Cups!

Spinach

You Will Need:

  • 1 can Immaculate Baking Co.® refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • 1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago cheese (4 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Here’s How to Get the Dough Rolling:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray. Cook spinach as directed on box. Drain spinach; cool 5 minutes. Carefully squeeze with paper towel to drain well.
  2. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender. Remove from heat. Stir in spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, 3/4 cup of the cheese and the mustard; set aside.
  3. Unroll dough into 2 long rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle into 12 squares. Place 1 square in each muffin cup; firmly press in bottom and up sides of cups, leaving corners of dough extended over edges of cups.
  4. Spoon slightly less than 1 tablespoon spinach mixture into each cup. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese, using about 1/2 teaspoon per cup.
  5. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; remove from muffin cups. Serve warm.
