Different ways to change up this recipe: 

  • You can use any cheese that you like. Reduced-fat mozzarella will give you the classic spinach artichoke dip flavor, but other cheese – like an Italian blend – would work. 

Tips and Tricks for Making Spinach Artichoke Crescent Rolls: 

  • Fresh or frozen spinach will work. Just thaw the spinach first if you’re using frozen. That way you can press out any of the water content before adding it to the cheese mixture. 
  • This recipe makes 16 servings, so you can use a 24 cup tin or 2×12 tins.
  • You might have to play around a bit with some loose pieces of dough to form a small square. You should be able to get 16 small square shaped pieces in total, but if not, you can always press pieces together in the muffin tin so that there are no holes in the bottom. 
  • If you’re not serving these right away, keep them stored in the fridge. They do not freeze well – too much water content. To reheat, pop them in the oven or air fryer so they crisp back up.
