Spinach and Feta Crescent Rolls

It’s usually when I find the most random ingredients in my fridge that I need to use up that I come up with a recipe that I can get even the pickiest of tiny humans to eat.  OK, so maybe I cheated a little bit with this one by wrapping it in a crescent roll, but it still worked and I did get TAB to eat spinach…which she normally wouldn’t do willingly and without a bunch of cheese.

Anyways, the other day I had a bag of baby spinach to use up and some feta cheese.  And since I know those are the primary ingredients in spanakopita, I decided to whip up some spinach and feta crescent rolls.  Super quick, super easy and a good side dish for any meal.

Start by sauteing an onion in some olive oil.
