Spinach cheese balls

Friday, January 30, 2009

These are delicious and a great way to get kids to eat their spinach!

What you’ll need:

2 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 c herb stuffing mix, crushed
1 c parmesan cheese
1 c (1 stick) butter, melted
4 scallions, finely chopped
3 eggs, lightly beaten
Dash of nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls. If it sticks to your hands, dampen then with water. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 20 - 30 minutes or until golden. Serves 10 - 12.

Note: You can freeze the balls after they are shaped and use them on a different day. Just be sure that they are covered in some way.

stuffing mix - $1.09
parmesan cheese - $1.99
butter - $1.75/pound
scallions - $2.50
eggs - $1.09/ dozen
