“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.”

  1. In a large bowl, mix together chopped spinach, dry bread stuffing mix, eggs, Parmesan cheese, onion, butter and Cheddar cheese. Cover and chill in the refrigerator approximately 30 minutes.

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!
