One of the most popular recipes here on The Kitchen is My Playground is our 3-Ingredient Crescent Sausage Bites.  A simple combination of sausage and cream cheese baked between layers of crescent rolls, they seem to be adored by all who try them.

They're a staple of my entertaining menu, and often grace our table as a quick dinner, too.

Given they're loved by so many, I decided it would be fun to try to create some different versions of these tasty little bites, too. My first new flavor, turkey crescent bites, leveraged Thanksgiving turkey leftovers to create a tasty little filling.

And then?

Then I decided to create a spinach dip-stuffed version.  They pack all the yummy makings of everybody's favorite spinach dip baked up between flaky layers of crescent rolls.

Well, not all the makings of our favorite spinach dip, actually.  There is one thing missing ...

The usual spinach dip vegetable soup mix.

When the idea for these little bites came to me I figured it would be super easy to just whip up the usual spinach dip ... with the usual dry vegetable soup mix as the seasoning ..., spread it between crescent roll layers, and bake it up.  And there'd you have it ~ Spinach Dip Crescent Bites!

Well, ... not so much.

The crescent roll crust makes these an easy little bite to whip up and to eat.  Without even having to worry about dipping.

For some reason, the combination of the crescent roll crust and the usual soup mix-based spinach dip just didn't taste quite right.

And I tried several times.  With little tweaks here and there.

Much to my surprise, it just plain didn't work.


So I abandoned my original approach and turned to making a from-scratch version of spinach dip instead of using the usual soup mix base.

Score!! ... It worked!  And turned out quite yummy, indeed, I must say.

Once baked, just give them a little roll-through with a pizza cutter to create easy-to-serve, easy-to-eat finger food spinach dip bites.

Lots of chopped green onion, lots of red bell pepper, a little garlic, paprika, and Parmesan give fabulous flavor to the scratch-made spinach dip filling.  And the crescent roll crust makes these an easy little bite to whip up and to eat.  Without even having to worry about dipping.

Ingredients
  • 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
Directions
  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, paprikacrushed 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.

Enjoy!

    1. I haven't tried making them fresh spinach, but I would think it would work just fine. If you give it a try, let me know how it goes!

    1. Best wishes to your daughter on her wedding! I wouldn't advise freezing these Spinach Dip Crescent Bites. I think they could be prepared perhaps a day in advance and reheated in the oven, but I don't think the dip filling would hold up well to freezing. Enjoy your daughter's extra-special day!!

  8. Hello there! These look and sound delicious. I think they would make a really good appetizer for a holiday at a family member's house. I was just wondering what the T stands for when it says 2 T. butter. I'm assuming tbsp, but I wasn't sure. I got a little confused, thinking tbsp or tsp. I would really like to make these sometime, but I just need to know first.

  13. It turned out incredibly tasty although there is no limit to perfection. This was a small congratulation from the brother with the new work. He tried very hard for this: he held all sorts of seminars, specifically addressed https://craftresumes.com/resumeediting/ to edit his resume, wrote a cover letter for several days. My brother is madly in love with spinach, and I have been looking for 3 days to cook this.
