How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Spinach Cheese Swirls

This is an appetizer, party-going favorite for the ages:

* 1/2 of a packaged (17.3 oz) Puff Pastry Sheets (from the freezer section)
* 1 egg
* 1 tbsp of water
* 1/2 cup of shredded Muenster cheese (or Monterey Jack . . . something white)
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
* 1 green onion, chopped
* 1/8 tsp garlic powder
* 1 pkg frozen chopped 10 oz pkg spinach (thawed and well drained)

Thaw pastry sheet at room temp for at least 40 minutes or until easy to handle.  Heat oven to 400.  Lightly grease a sheet or line w/ parchment paper.  Stir egg and water in a small bowl.  Stir muenster cheese, parmesan cheese, onion, and garlic powder in a medium bowl.   Unfold the pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface.  brush with egg mixture.  Top with cheese mixture and spinach.   Starting at the short side,  closest to you, roll up like a jelly roll. Cut into to 1/2" slices.  Place the slices on the baking sheet and brush lightly with egg wash.   Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.
