I buy canned goods all the time. I usually stock up on them each week when I go to the grocery store. I buy my local HEB brand Hill Country Fare. I have been using this brand for years.
With New Potatoes, Spinach, Lima Beans and Collard Greens filled my basket. I was excited about trying this brand in my appetizer recipe.
So I decided after much thought of creating a recipe using the canned spinach. I wanted something quick and easy. With the 4th of July holiday approaching, I wanted to create a recipe that is party and kid friendly. You can certainly use mixed greens or kale for this recipe. My family preferred the
spinach so this is what we used for the recipe.
This is my recipe for Spinach Cream Cheese Applewood Smoked Bacon Roll Ups
2 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
One 8 oz container of chive
whipped cream cheese
One 27 oz can Glory Foods Spinach drained and pressed
One 7 oz container of diced onion
1/2 pound of Applewood Smoked Bacon cooked crisp
pinch of garlic salt(optional)
One 7 oz container diced yellow, green and red bell peppers
One 8 oz package of Shredded Extra Sharp White Cheddar
3 to 4 packages of Mission Wraps~ Spinach and Jalapeno Cheddar Flavor
Directions: Brown bacon in large skillet until crispy. Drain
bacon fat, leaving one tablespoon in large skillet. Saute
onion and diced peppers until vegetables cook down and
turn slightly brown. Add a pinch of garlic salt.
To food processor pulse peppers and bacon until just incorporated.
In large bowl combine cream cheese until smooth. Add spinach
pepper and bacon mixture. Blend well.
Spread mixture on Mission Wraps and Sprinkle with extra sharp white shredded cheddar cheese. Wrap in plastic
wrap or put in a covered container to chill in fridge about an hour. Slice into pinwheels and serve with your favorite salsa.
This was a hit at my sisters house. All the kids loved it. We devoured this appetizer as fast as it took to make. I love the Glory Foods brand and will continue to buy them.I love good old fashioned southern food. I love butter beans and green beans with new potatoes. But the problem with most
canned vegetables is the bland taste. This is not the case at all with this brand. I was amazed of the taste of the Green Beans. They are
delicious. I tried them out when I got home from my sisters house for dinner.
