  • Spread 1/5 of the spinach mixture along one short side of phyllo stack. Fold in long sides of phyllo; roll up from one short side to make log. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets and spinach mixture. Brush with remaining butter. Make small cuts in tops of logs at 1-inch intervals. Place in large freezer-weight resealable plastic bags or wrap tightly in plastic wrap.

  • Freeze up to 3 months. When ready to bake, remove desired number of logs from freezer. Refrigerate, tightly wrapped, several hours or overnight until thawed. Unwrap, then place on baking sheet. Bake in 375 degrees F oven for 25 min. or until golden brown. Cool 5 min. Transfer to cutting board. Use serrated knife to cut each log into 6 slices.

STORAGE KNOW-HOW

Leftover phyllo sheets can be wrapped tightly and refrozen.

HOW TO PREPARE WITH 18X14-INCH PHYLLO SHEETS

Use a total of 9 phyllo sheets, spreading 1/3 of the filling on each stack of 3 sheets and rolling up each stack to make a total of 3 logs. Freeze and bake as directed. Cut each log into 10 slices to serve.

VARIATION

Omit butter. Spray phyllo sheets with cooking spay instead of brushing with the melted butter.

This is excellent and a family favorite. I made just slight changes to make it a little lighter and less points. I add some fresh spinach I usually have around about 1 cup chopped and butter one layer light butter spray the next. And instead of spreading 1/5 of the spinach mixture along one short side of phyllo stack and fold in long sides of phyllo I do the opposite. I put the mixture on the long side fold in the short side less dough more spinach in each bite. You can't lose anyway you make this recipe. Read More

My aunt got this out of a Kraft cookbook magazine maybe 10 years ago. She made it and I ate probably an entire log! She let me tear out the page and I made it - simple seriously delicious - awesome! Also freezes nicely - thaw and swipe with butter then bake. Read More

Crowd pleaser. Simple and easy and handles substitutions well...I forgot to buy cream cheese! So used yogurt cottage cheese and some cream because thats what I had! I also added sautéed mushrooms and shallots instead of green onions. Looking forward to trying it with the veg cream cheese....but these were gobbled up. Read More

I had to make a couple small changes but otherwise made as written. The tub of feta I got was 5 oz so I used it all. I was unable to get the garden cream cheese so I used regular and I added a little salt. My husband said it was a keeper. Read More

I made these the last 2 years for holidays and gifts. You can actually get 5 or 6 logs depending on how much filling you use in each one. I found this recipe on Kraft's website. It also has a video and their cook suggests making 5 rolls per recipe. Everyone who has tried them absolutely love them. I will be making them this year too! Read More
