Spinach, Goat Cheese, and Sun Dried Tomato Rolls

The other day Pinterest inspired me to create these Spinach, Goat Cheese, Sun Dried Tomato Rolls.  The idea came from some pizza rolls that had been made using pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and bread dough.

I made my bread dough and used about half of it for this recipe.

Bread dough (can make from scratch or use pre-made from the grocery store)
Thawed frozen chopped spinach (probably could use fresh baby spinach too)
Oil-packed Julienne cut Sun Dried Tomatoes (I keep a jar of these as well as a bag of sun dried tomatoes on hand.  As the jar gets used, I fill it up with tomatoes from the bag...economical!)
Goat Cheese (can sub mozzarella or use both kinds, some Parmesan would be great too!)
Garlic powder
Red Pepper Flakes
Salt and pepper (optional)
Olive Oil

How To
Use your fingers to roll out the dough to make a rectangle.  You can roll/stretch it out thinly, but get it so that it isn't thicker than 1/2-3/4 inch.  Squeeze all the water out of the thawed spinach and spread it over the top of the dough.

Crumble the goat cheese over the top.

Add the sun dried tomatoes.

Sprinkle on the garlic powder, some red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

Start at the widest side of the dough and carefully roll the dough up and pinch it closed.

Use a sharp serrated knife to slice about 1 to 1-1/2  inch slices.  Lay the slices flat on the cooking sheet.  I was able to get 9 rolls cut.

Spray or brush the rolls with some olive oil. 
Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes. 
Mine in the pictures should have cooked for another couple of minutes to help brown them up, but I was hungry!
