Prep: 25 Minutes Grill: 10 minutes Makes 15 servings
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Hellmann's® Real Mayonnaise
2 tubes (one 6 ounces, one 12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
**Marinara sauce, warmed, optional**
1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, garlic and pepper until blended. Stir in spinach, cheeses and mayonnaise.
2 . Separate biscuit dough. Using a serrated knife, cut each biscuit horizontally in half. Wrap each half around 1 tablespoon spinach mixture, pinching to seal and forming a ball.
3 . Layer in a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm with marinara sauce if desired.
Enjoy this recipe with a light-bodied white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
