Total Time: 40 minutes
- 2 cups (360g) Spinach cooked weight
- 125 g Cream cheese
- 3/4 cup (75g) Parmesan grated
- 1 tablespoon Olive oil
- 4 Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Nutmeg ground
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons water
Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
Cook the spinach until tender (if using fresh). Mix with the cream cheese, half the Parmesan cheese and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
Whisk the eggs with the water and season with salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and pour in 1/4 cup of the egg mixture. This will make a small, thin omelette. Cook until firm and turn over to cook the over side. Remove and place to the side. Continue to do this until all of egg mixture is used.
Spoon some of the spinach mixture onto an edge of an omelette and roll up. Place in a shallow gratin dish and repeat using all the omelettes.
Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese and bake for 25 minutes.
Serves 2-4 (makes 4-6 spinach rolls)
