Broccoli Cheddar Pinwheels

For a quick and tasty appetizer, roll up some Broccoli Cheddar Pinwheels

The store bought crescent rolls take the hard work out of this recipe and all that’s left is to chop broccoli and assemble

So you’ll need one package of crescent dough sheets, 1/2 bar (4 ounces) of room temp cream cheese, 2 cups of finely chopped broccoli, one cup of shredded cheddar and 1/2 teaspoon each of kosher salt, black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder

Roll the crescent dough out retaining the rectangular shape and spread the softened cream cheese over it with an offset spatula

 Cover the cream cheese with the broccoli, pressing down lightly.  Sprinkle with the salt, pepper and onion/garlic powders

Evenly cover with the shredded cheese, press down and now let’s roll!

Start from one end and evenly roll making sure the filling stays inside

Roll, roll, roll…

Pinch the ends and lightly score to measure out 8 even slices

Slice through with a sharp knife

Lay the slices on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper lightly sprayed with cooking oil

Sprinkle with poppy seeds & bake in a 350 degree F oven for about 18-20 minutes
