Spinach Balls

Spinach Balls

(I talked about this recipe here)

2 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 cups herb stuffing mix, crushed
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 scallions, chopped
3 eggs
dash nutmeg

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Shape into 1-inch balls.
Cover and refrigerate or freeze if not baking right away (this works well if you're doing them for a party - you can make them ahead of time and bake right before the party).
Preheat oven to 350.
Arrange spinach balls on a cookie sheet (no need to thaw, if frozen) and bake 10-15 minutes at 350 until lightly browned.
Serve with mustard for dipping, if desired.

What a great idea to use these as a meatball substitute in spaghetti! I will have to try this. I missed these as an appetizer on Thanksgiving...

Anna, yeah I was bummed that you didn't get to try these on Thanksgiving, because I really thought you would like them...I'll have to make them again soon!
