Step by step recipe

Stage 1
1 hour 9 min.
Crispy spinach rolls : Photo of step #1 Prepare 250 g cooked spinach, then chop coarsly with a knife.
Stage 2
7 min.
Crispy spinach rolls : Photo of step #2 Lightly fry 125 g small pieces of bacon in a frying pan without adding any extra fat.

When cooked to your taste, tip the bacon into a bowl, leaving the cooking fat in the pan.

Stage 10
15 min.
Crispy spinach rolls : Photo of step #10 Pour 100 ml oil into a large frying pan on medium heat. There should be a shallow depth of oil all over the pan to cook the rolls properly.

When the oil is hot, cook the rolls evenly all over, turning them with tongs if possible (the easiest way).

Do be careful not to let them brown too much. This can happen quickly, so you must keep an eye on the rolls from the time they go into the pan.

Remarks

The proportions for the filling can be varied according to your taste, so don't hesitate to add a little more or a little less of something.
