Instead of sausage balls, try these savory spinach treats -- they're great! The recipe was given to me while shopping by a lady at the grocery store. The formed balls may be stored frozen in airtight containers until ready for use.

Unbelievably good! They really do taste just like meatballs. Hints - * It is vital to use a stuffing mix with seasoning (I think some of the reviews that say it was bland may have used just bread crumbs). * I added about 1/8 - 1/4 tsp pepper, a couple of dashes of Cayanne, and 1-2 cloves garlic. * It seemed a bit dry when I was stirring it, so I added a few Tbsp cottage cheese. There are probably lots of things you could use. * definitely turn them a few times during cooking to get a more even brown.

These were FANTASTIC! My guests devoured a double recipe of them! Per reviews already posted, I added salt, pepper and a T of Worchestershire. I also baked them in mini muffin pans. They were superb!!

My family loves these at our holiday get-togethers. I stick to the recipe, and just add a bit of garlic powder. I make a dipping sauce from 1/2 cup light sour cream, 1 tsp mustard, dash of worcestershire, and 1 tbsp of soy sauce (adjust to taste). Healthy and good!
