Spinach Dip Crescent Bites

  • 2 T. butter
  • 1 c. chopped green onion (about 1 bunch, white & green parts)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 c. chopped red bell pepper (about 1 large pepper)
  • 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed & well drained
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1/3 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. chopped water chestnuts
  • 1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 packages Crescent Rolls

  1. Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Add green onion, bell pepper, and garlic; saute until limp, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add spinach and cream cheese. Stir mixture and blend in cream cheese until the cream cheese is melted. Stir in salt, pepper, paprika, crushed red pepper, mayonnaise, lemon juice, water chestnuts, and Parmesan. Remove from heat.
  3. Unroll one package of crescent rolls and place on a baking sheet. With your fingers, gently press the seams together to seal them. Spread the spinach mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough, leaving about a 1/2-inch border along the edges.
  4. Unroll the remaining package of crescent rolls and place on top of the spinach mixture. Press the edges together to seal. Gently press the seams together.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until crescent roll dough is golden brown.
  6. Cut into small squares and serve. (A pizza cutter makes really quick and easy work of the cutting!)
