Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free: Kronk Inspired Spinach Puffs


September’s Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free challenge is “Disney Inspired Food” hosted by Gluten Free Gidget. Initially, I didn’t know what I should do, but when I started thinking about my favourite Disney Movie “The Emperor’s New Groove” immediately came to mind. And what does that mean? Spinach Puffs!

I thus then perused the interwebs for recipes, but didn’t quite find any to my liking, so I made my own based on a few of the of recipes I found.

Spinach Puffs ala Kronk from the Emperor’s Groove

GF Pastry Mix for one crust, rolled between two pieces of wax paper, 1/4″ thick in as rectangular as you can

1 pkg cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1/4 onion, chopped
2-3+ cups of fresh spinach, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 c. feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c. grated cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Beat cream cheese until fluffy in a mixer.
  2. Add eggs one at a time until beaten in.
  3. Add all cheeses, spinach and salt and pepper and mix on low speed until just barely incorporated.
  4. Spoon filling onto pastry on one side, then roll over and pinch ends together.
  5. Cut roll into ~1″ thick strips and carefully lift onto a greased cookie sheet. Note: I did end up having a lot of filling left over. It is quite tasty when spooned into muffin tins and baked until slightly browned.
  6. Cook at 350F for about 20 minutes or until edges are nicely golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!



They’re not quite as triangle-y as Kronk’s, but unlike Yzma I do like his spinach puffs.

What is your favourite Disney movie?

    That’s awesome! But how could you narrow it down to just one favourite Disney movie?! Actually, I think it would have to be Dead Man’s Chest…but New Groove is up there for Disney cartoon faves. 🙂

  3. I’m more of a classic kinda girl, my fave is Cinderella

  4. I am with Melissa – I love Cinderella and Beauty and The Beast is a close second.

  5. Yum! I love the sound of these spinach puffs! Love the idea of basing food off of Disney =D as well.

  6. Too many favorite Disney movies to name a favorite!
