Default Spinach Balls

My mother got this recipe from a lady that use to attend her church.

2 10oz pkgs chopped frozen spinach
4 eggs,beaten
1 stick melted butter
1 large minced onion
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp accent ( I personally use crazymixed up salt instead)

Cook and drain spinach. Mix together remaining ingredients and combine with spinach. Chill until butter is hard enough for mixture to be shaped into balls. Bake for 20 mins at 350 degrees.

Mom found a way to get me to eat my spinach

Hi Blitzang!

I just made these spinach balls tonight and they were wonderful! Very easy to make too, not something I would have to watch over!

We had them with a side of tomato sauce with meatballs. My husband liked them so much he is taking some of the leftovers to work tonight (works 3rd shift) to eat there!

we will definitely make these again!

Cool recipe! They would probably be delicious in chicken soup.

Does anyone have a ballpark guess on how long it takes them to firm up? I am making soup and waiting for them to firm up so I can float them in my soup. They are currently in the freezer cause the frig just isn't fast enough for me.

Thanks for sharing the recipe! I made them tonight and all my kids even the three year old loved them! We ate them in our soup and they were sooooo yummy!


Thanks again,
Jenn

Glad you liked them. It's the only way I can get my 4 children to eat spinach. And yes I make them and freeze some for later and it helped mine firm up nicely.

I really don't like cooked spinach unless it's drowning in some kind of dairy product, so I didn't think I'd like these... but they were fantastic! The only minor problem was that they stuck to the baking sheet like glue, so I think next time, I might make this into a spinach pie and just slice it... or maybe bake them in muffin cups.

Great recipe; that's a keeper.

Use parchment paper. It makes cleaning up a breeze!

I am like, so lazy that I cover baking trays with foil then line them with parchment. It's great for all baking jobs, from sweets to fish.

Heh heh. I thought foil plus the butter in the recipe would suffice. I'll try parchment next time.

I make these quite often ...my step dad calls them goat droppings..lol....I go by the original recipe only I add about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the mix. When you let them bake long enough to get a little brown, the cheese will actually add a little crunch to the outside . I like them so much I can eat them straight out of the fridge with no dip...oh and Reynolds no stick foil is the best thing out there to prevent sticking...
