Spinach and Ricotta Mini Jaffles

I saw the Kmart Mini Jaffle Maker and knew I had to make Spinach and Ricotta Mini Jaffles with it! They’re crispy, with creamy filling, and a great lunchbox snack.

The other day I was in Target, which now stocks Kmart products and I was so confused with what was happening. I ended up stumbling across their cute kitchen goodies, and as soon as I saw the Mini Jaffle Maker, I knew I had to make some puffs in them.

How to make Spinach and Ricotta Mini Jaffles

This Mini Jaffle Maker actually makes 4 mini toasted sandwiches with one piece of bread, so it actually works by cutting every puff pastry sheet into 4 even squares. It fits perfectly!

I mixed up the ricotta and spinach mixture, and then cut and thawed the puff pastry. I found it was better to assemble the ingredients into the Mini Jaffle Maker while it was turned off, and then switch it on when assembled.

I gave the machine a quick spray with Canola Oil Spray on the plates before starting, and then lay down the puff pastry square and then a spoonful of the filling into each hole (you can see the impression of where it dips through the pastry). I lay another puff pastry square on, and then closed the machine, and cooked until the light came on, or until golden.

I then trimmed the puffs and cut them into quarters. And then they’re ready to enjoy!

The ingredients to make Spinach and Ricotta Mini Jaffles

There’s so much room to experiment and create here, which I’m excited to do. Imagine little apple pie jaffles, or Nutella versions. There’s so many ways to mix it up and have fun with it. Stay tuned!
