Spinach and Artichoke Bites are a perfect easy appetizer that combines a favorite dip with crescent rolls for a delicious finger food.Jump to Recipe
I love the combination of spinach and artichoke together. I’ve made it as a regular dip, a baked dip, and in stuffed shells and in quesadillas. This time, I decided to make it slightly thicker than usual and try it with some crescent rolls.
Spinach and Artichoke Bites would be a perfect appetizer for a party. They are small finger-food sized bites and stay good even as they start to cool just a bit.
When we made these, I did them with the crescent rolls cut in half and at normal size. While they were delicious, the smaller ones were a bit better. They seemed to have a bit more stuffing compared to the amount of bread. And a large one gets closer to meal portions while the small ones are perfect as an appetizer.
I served mine with a bit more of the filling on the side, or you can dip in marinara sauce. Some may find marinara an odd choice, but it’s one of my favorites and I liked it with the Spinach and Artichoke Bites.
Step by Step
Preheat the oven to 375F. Prepare all of your ingredients.
Add the spinach, artichoke hearts, Swiss cheese, and cream cheese to a blender and pulse until the mixture is creamy and smooth. I prefer to transfer to a bowl, but you don’t have to.
Unroll the crescent rolls from one can and slice them in half to make each triangle into two triangles. Gently stretch the larger end of each triangle and make a small indention in the dough. It doesn’t have to be much, but enough to hold the dip.
Spoon about 1/4 tbsp of the spinach-artichoke mixture into the indentation on each triangle.
Roll from the widest part of the triangle to form the crescent roll around the filling, pinching the sides to seal any open edges. Continue with all of the triangles. Repeat with the other can of crescent rolls. Place on a baking sheet or stone about one inch apart.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until the crescent rolls are golden brown.
We put the leftover Spinach and Artichoke Bites in a container and refrigerated them. I thought they were decent cold, but we both preferred them warmed up. The toaster oven was perfect on the warm setting to add a bit of heat back to the bites without toasting them further.

Mmm, these sound delish. And I agree, half-sized crescent rolls (based on when the girls and I have experimented with stuffing things into them) would be better for this – I should think full-sized ones might be a bit heavy from all the dough…good call!
That was exactly the problem with the larger crescents, they were almost too doughy and I like a lot of dough!
Can you use store bought spinach and artichoke dip?
I haven’t actually tried with store-bought, but I think it would work very similarly.
These sound amazing! And super easy to make using the crescent dough! Thanks for the inspiration!
The crescent roll dough makes it so easy to put these together!
I love that the filling is blended all together. It works really well in the smaller crescent rolls.
Yes! Blending makes it so easy to stuff in the crescent rolls.
Seems I’ve been craving snacks like this a lot lately! They’re so easy to make and super-popable 🙂 Very good for my cravings! Yum!
I ate so many of these throughout the day! They are almost too easy 🙂

Yumm, those spinach & artichoke filled crescent rolls look so delicious and inviting. I think I have all the ingredients on hand – will have to try these out soon.
Don’t you love finding a new recipe AND already having all the ingredients?! I hope you like them as much as we do.
What a great flavor combination! Looks so easy, too!
They are so easy to put together. Especially when blending up all the filling instead of mixing by hand.
It sure makes for a pretty filling color. I like that it uses Swiss cheese. I wouldn’t mind whipping up a batch of these.
These look absolutely mouthwatering! I love spinach artichoke dip, so I know this sis going to be amazing.
looks soo good. we rarely eat spinach and artichoke so this’ll be a great first impression for the fam 🙂
Mmm, those look delectable! I would love to try one of them.
I think the smaller ones would be better too, flavor-wise. I’ve never thought to mix artichokes and spinach, but I like them both, so I wouldn’t mind trying these.
even though I hate spinach, I am willing to give this a try because its in a dough with cream chesse! it looks delicious.
Wow this looks yummy, way we can cook spinach. Thank you for sharing! I will try this soon.
Nnnniiiiccceeeeee….these look exactly like my good friends spring rolls! I wanna try them out. It’s been a long time without enjoying some spinach!
Now, this is a treat that I will enjoy for sure!! Can totally eat this with my favorite pasta and be solved!
I love the color of these. Plus, let’s face it everything’s better in a crescent roll.
