Baked Mini Spinach and Artichoke Bites

Spinach and Artichoke Bites are a perfect easy appetizer that combines a favorite dip with crescent rolls for 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 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 a small handheld appetizer and stay good even as they start to cool just a bit.

When we made these, I did them with the crescent dough 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 it 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.

Spinach Artichoke Bites Ingredients

Spinach Leaves

Use fresh spinach leaves for this recipe. It works better than frozen spinach and has more flavor. I like to use baby spinach leaves because they are smaller and easier to work with. 

Artichoke Hearts

The artichoke hearts are the most important part of the hot spinach artichoke dip that goes in the middle of the bites. The marinated artichoke hearts add a bit of flavor, but you could use plain ones if necessary. I like the ones that are already quartered because they blend easier, but it isn’t necessary. 

Swiss Cheese

While I am not usually a fan of Swiss cheese, it works really well in this recipe. You could also replace it with shredded parmesan cheese or mozzarella cheese. 

Cream Cheese

It doesn’t seem like a lot of cream cheese, but this is what holds the dip together. If you can’t get cream cheese, you could replace it with an equal amount of sour cream. 

Crescent Rolls

The crescent rolls surround the spinach-artichoke dip to hold the bites all together. I like using these because the crescent roll dough is already cut into triangles and is perfect for rolling up. If you can’t get crescent rolls, you could also purchase premade pizza dough in a roll and cut it into triangles. Or use a phyllo shell or a puff pastry cup.

Spinach and Artichoke Bites Step by Step

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups spinach leaves
  • 1/4 jar marinated artichoke hearts (drained)
  • 1 oz Swiss cheese (shredded)
  • 1/2 oz cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
  • 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
Stainless steel bowls with shredded cheese, spinach leaves, artichoke hearts, and cream cheese all on a wooden surface

Preparation

Preheat 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. Transfer the spinach mixture to a large bowl.

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 cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray or baking stone about one inch apart.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until the crescent rolls are golden brown. Serve your spinach dip bites with more dip or marinara sauce.

Spinach and Artichoke Bites Leftovers

Storage: We put the leftover Spinach and Artichoke Bites in an airtight container and refrigerated them. I thought they were decent cold, but we both preferred them warmed up. 

Reheating: The best way to reheat is in the toaster oven on the warm setting to add a bit of heat back to the bites without toasting them further.

  1. 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!

  2. 5 stars
    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.

  3. 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.
