Spinach Balls

My Sister is a Vegetarian and always makes these

for holiday gatherings and parties

Serve Warm - Serves: 10 - Preparation Time: 30:00

2 Pkgs frozen chopped spinach, drained & pressed
1/2 Cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
2 Cups Pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing
¾ Cup Margarine or butter
½ Cup Romano or Parmesan - I prefer Romano
6 Eggs, beaten
5 Cloves Garlic, Roasted (can use chopped garlic if no time to roast)
1 Small Onion, chopped small

Microwave the spinach 7 minutes to fully defrost, drain in colander - pressing out additional water. Mix all ingredients. Spray cookie sheet with Pam, roll into balls the size of a small meatballs & place onto greased cookie sheet. Put in the freezer to flash freeze for 2 hours. Remove balls from cookie sheet. Store in ziplock bags freezer until you are ready to cook & serve. When you are ready to cook & serve, place frozen balls on cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.

The cooked spinach balls should be firm and crisp but not dry.

They will make you a spinach lover!!!!

chefa1a, my recipe is similar.
I delete cheddar, use 3 eggs, grate onion instead of chop, and grate fresh garlic instead of roast. But similar. Also, I ring the heck out of the spinach.

I serve mine with homemade blue cheese dressing.
