Homemade Feta Cheese and Feta, Ricotta and Spinach Rolls

A few weeks ago, Mr B and I made our own feta cheese using our Mad Millie Cheese Kit. It never ceases to amaze me how simple cheese making is. Yes it is a little time consuming but absolutely worth it when you taste the finished product.

That there is 1kg of feta cheese.....

We cut most of it up into 200g slices and placed it in some brine in the fridge. But when we tried it a few hours later it was super salty so we soaked it in some milk for an hour and hey-presto it was perfect.

We cut the rest of it up into small cubes and placed it in a jar full of basil infused olive oil. I can't wait to try this one later on!

As you can imagine, this week we have been going feta crazy....feta stuffed omelettes, potted eggs topped with feta and last night's instalment, Feta, Ricotta and Spinach Rolls. I was a little worried these might lack flavour and desperately wanted to add some glad Mr B stopped me because they were amazing!

To make these Feta, Ricotta and Spinach Rolls you will need:

200g feta cheese
100g ricotta cheese
250g frozen spinach
2 sheets puff pastry
1 egg, beaten
2 tbspns milk

Grease a baking tray and pre-hat oven to 180C.

De-frost the spinach in the fridge overnight. Try and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

Combine the feta, ricotta and spinach in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Cut the puff pastry sheets into quarters.

Place tablespoons of the filling along one edge of each pastry square and roll up to enclose.

Combine the egg and milk and brush over the pastry.

Bake for 20-25 mins or until puffed and golden.

And look at these gorgeous pink carnations Mum and Dad brought me last night- three bunches of flowers in one week has to be a new record!
