Spinach Roll

============

From: X68100@BARILVM.BITNET

1 pkg frozen puff pastry, defrosted
2 boxes frozen chopped spinach
instant mashed potatoes (flakes or granules)
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
1 egg, beaten
sesame seeds

Unwrap the spinach, and defrost in a bowl.  Add enough of the instant potatoes
to soak up the spinach liquid, and make a medium-soft mixture.  Add seasonings
to taste.  Divide pastry in half, and roll each into a fairly thin rectangle.
spread each with half the spinach mixture to within 1 inch of the edges.  Roll
up along the longer side.  Seal edges. Put on a greased (or Pammed) baking
sheet.  Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Bake at 375
degrees till browned.  Cut into slices before serving.  Makes about 24 slices.

Even some spinach haters (namesly my son-in-law) like this.  Rolls can be
frozen.  They slice best when cold, so wou might want to make them ahead and
reheat.

NOTE:  Puff pastry dough can be filled with all sorts of yummy things
like sauteed mushrooms and onions, browned seasoned ground meat, etc.
