PREP TIME: 30 minutes
COOK TIME: 20 minutes
YIELD: 16 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tbsp plant-based butter
  • 1 red onion, finely minced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pkg frozen spinach, liquid squeezed out*
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp red chili flakes, optional
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 (8oz) pkg plant-based cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 pkg crescent rolls dough, 16 regular sized crescents total
  • 1 pkg Butcher Select Brekkie Sausage, cut in half

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. In a medium sized pan over medium-high heat, add butter and once hot add red onion and garlic. Saute for 5-6 minutes or until translucent.
  3. Add spinach, garlic powder, red chili flakes, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes or until extra liquid has cooked out.
  4. Stir in cream cheese. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.
  5. Roll out crescent roll dough. At the largest part of each triangle, evenly divide spinach mixture and place half a brekkie sausage on top. Be sure the spinach mixture is room temperature or colder before placing it on dough.
  6. Gently roll dough from starting at the largest end and being sure to contain all spinach mixture inside the dough. Place on a sheet pan, spaced out evenly.
  7. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
*If you are using fresh spinach, cook 1 ½ pounds fresh spinach in a non-stick pan until wilted. Let cool, then squeeze out extra liquid.

Note: Upgrade this dish by serving it with this easy, creamy dip. Combine 1 pkg (8oz) plant-based sour cream; ½ lemon, juiced; ½ cup fresh chopped herbs; 3 cloves minced garlic; salt and pepper.
