Cheesy Greek Swirls - Life, Love, and Good Food

I don’t know if you’ve noticed it by now or not, but I really like Greek flavors and have posted several recipes with Kalamata olives and Feta cheese on my blog in the past few months. 

In fact, this past week while on vacation, I enjoyed a Greek salad by the pool at our resort on more than one occasion…so very good! 

So you see, when the recipe for Cheesy Greek Swirls came in the mail with my Kroger coupons, I knew I had to try them!

Just before our vacation, we had friends over for a Greek-inspired meal that included Cheesy Greek Swirls and Greek Chicken Kabobs — both were a big hit!

Tips: Although this is an easy recipe to assemble, it is a little messy —at least for me it was a messy process. Be sure to roll up the dough tightly and carefully slice with a perforated knife, holding the slice gently to help it keep its shape as you place it on the baking sheet. Enjoy!

hi, what measurements should I roll out the puff pastry dough? Thanks!

Ingrid, the puff pastry that I use comes folded (like a tri-fold) in a box. I simply unfold the pastry and leave it at its original size then proceed with layering the ingredients.

I'm not Greek but DO enjoy Greek food. As a Yugoslav born (Romanian descent) female who has been living in Ontario, Canada for the last 50 yrs, I'm often intrigued by what other people find most appealing about a country's cuisine. Chicken kebabs are not unexpected (you might find lamb or even beef kebabs just as tasty) but your puff pastry swirls WERE a surprise. I don't care for olives but the rest of the toppings sound delicious.

I like playing with phyllo based Greek dishes ... baklava, spanako(tiro)pita and galaktoboureko are among my favourites.

The middle-eastern tag on my LJ has some other goodies including lamb dishes.

A-Boleyn, the Cheesy Greek Swirls will still be delicious without the olives! Thank you for sharing your recipe links. Some day I will be brave enough to try my hand at baklava as well! :)
