Spinach Balls

"Awesome Spinach Balls"

This has been a busy week for me not to mention that we had scorching hot and humid weather with extreme weather alerts throughout the city. I tried not to use my oven due to the humidity and heat but i had this recipe laying aroud which I've been meaning to try so I cranked up the A/C and started to bake these. Hey..........it was only about 1/2 hour so it wasn't too bad with the oven turned on.
I got this recipe off a fellow Blogger that goes by the name of ChefBeck that I'm on this foodie board...........

Awesome Spinach Balls
Adapted from a Susan Branch Cookbook

2 [10 oz.] pkgs. frozen chopped spinach
4 eggs beaten
2 cups herb stuffing mix
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1 garlic clove, minced
1 small onion, minced
1 tsp. dry thyme, crushed
3/4 cup butter, melted
salt and pepper to taste

Ready to be baked.........

Cook spinach according to package, drain and squeeze very dry.

Mix all the ingredients well and chill for 2 hours.

Roll into 1" balls.

Put on cookie sheet and bake at preheated oven 325 deg F. for 25-30 min. till browing edges.

They are great warm and room temperature.

Before baking you can freeze on cookie sheet, then store in plastic bags. Thaw before baking.

These are great as appetizers.........which maybe served with a dip. As you can see I just made them for my Family, and my husband was dipping his into Tzatziki, he said it kind of reminded him of Spanakopita.
But on a nice decorative platter with maybe some cherry tomtoes stuffed inter/mixed just to add colour would be nice............. or even I read someone mentioned they were using a Marinara sauce for dipping. the choice is yours but they are addicting.
Be sure and visit other Foodies and see what everyone has on their plates for today.




Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend with some great food!!!!!!


  1. I love spinach balls and they are so easy and everyone likes them too (almost as much as deviled eggs!)

  2. I need to host a party just to have a good excuse to make these in mass quantities! They look great--thanks for the recipe!

    By the way, the link in Mr. Linky over at Food on Fridays took me to Marigolds, so I updated the link for you on my page (but not in the pop up Mr. Linky system).

  3. Yum! I am always looking for healthy recipes to try out. I think that your husband might be on to something because the combo does sound good. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  4. Oh yum! Do you happen to have an extra plate?

    I hope you'll stop by and see my video for a French Macaroon video. There are bloopers. :)

    I am also hosting a giveaway for a French Basketeer tote.

  5. I want one, Erica!!! They look delicious.

  6. These look really good. Thanks for the great idea!

  7. These are a must for me. I love to take a vegetable and build on it. Would you like to link it to My Meatless Mondays.
    It would be a fabulous addition.

  8. Hi Erica, these spinach balls look scrumptious! I'll have to try this recipe soon! Thanks so much for stopping by : ) my Franklin pond is indeed in Cambridge. I'll be back soon to check out more of your recipes.
