how to make spinach and gruyère breakfast rolls

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray an 8″ round cake pan with cooking spray. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add green onions and cook, stirring, until softened about 3 minutes. Next, add tomato and sage to pan, cook until the tomato is soft about 3-4 minutes. Add spinach and cook just until it starts to wilt. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Unroll crescent roll dough. Separate into 2 long rectangles, side by side. Place the edge of one rectangle over the other, and press together until completely sealed.

Pour spinach and tomato mixture onto top of dough. Sprinkle with cheese and pepper. Starting at one long end, roll dough up like a jelly roll. Carefully, not to rip. Cut into 8 slices. Sprinkle tops with salt and arrange cut side up in cake pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until puffed and browned.

tips for making spinach and gruyère breakfast rolls

Keep crescent roll dough refrigerated until ready to use. If you leave it out on the counter it will make it harder to roll up with everything inside.

Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. These will last up to a week.

Swop out the Gruyère for another white cheese if you don’t have it. You can use parmesan, mozzarella, asiago, or even feta!

You can use regular crescent dough instead of these reduced fat crescent rolls, but it will add more points to each roll.
