Confession time guys: I am decidedly addicted to the Spinach Feta Wrap from Starbucks.
I never thought I’d hear myself saying that. In fact after working at Starbucks from 2 years I scoffed at the thought of them carrying breakfast items. I scoffed the scoffers. There was NO WAY that they would be able to get those sandwiches out on time and have a warm, toasty, delicious breakfast in my hand in less than 5 minutes. NO. WAY.
I tried the gouda and turkey bacon one. MEH. I could use more cheese (although when it comes to good cheese who wouldn’t want more?).
Then one fateful day I tried the spinach feta wrap. Oh goodness. Oh me oh my. My mouth was awakened with the flavors, the salty feta and the earthy spinach. The egg was just a sideshow to the other two. And ever since I’ve never ordered any other kind of breakfast thing at Starbucks.
That’s right, we’re 2 years and going strong.
Now that we’ve had story time though I have to say that the expense is definitely not something that we want to fork out. Hence the spinach feta biscuit was born and I will forever lay blame, albeit the good kind, on Starbucks and their ridiculous wrap. These biscuits are delicious, full of flavor, and chock-full of spinach. It seems weird. It is weird. But just like the Starbucks breakfast sandwich plan, it works.
- 2 cups flour, plus 1/2 cup for kneading
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 clove garlic, minced finely
- 1 packed cup fresh chopped spinach
- 1/3 cup crumbled feta
Preheat oven to 400. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a spoon stir in the garlic, spinach, and feta. Fold in the milk and the butter; dough will be sticky. Mix until all of the dry ingredients are incorporated and the spinach and feta are mixed in. Sprinkle the counter with flour, dump the dough into the middle, and sprinkle the top with flour. Knead for about 30 seconds or about 10-15 times. Using your hands pat the dough into 1/2 inch circle and using a biscuit cutter cut the biscuits from the circle. Place the biscuits on a lined (with parchment) baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and done. Serve warm with butter.
