  1. Cook the mushrooms to pack instructions; drain well. Microwave the spinach, covered, for 2 mins on high. Stir, then cook for a further 1½ mins. Put in a sieve and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Finely chop the spinach and mushrooms, then mix in a large bowl; season.
  2. Carefully unroll the pastry sheet. On a floured surface, roll out to about 40 x 30cm. Spread the mushroom and spinach mix over the pastry, leaving a 1cm border, then scatter with the cheese. Roll up as tightly as you can from a shorter end and chill for 10 mins (if you have the time). Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
  3. With a sharp knife, cut the chilled pastry roll into 24 slim discs. Place on a large baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper, brush with a little egg and cook for 20-25 mins or until golden and crisp. Serve with salsa or ketchup for dipping, if you like.

Tip: Once cooked, cool, then place in a freezerproof container. Cook from frozen in a hot oven for 5 mins until crisp.
