A Crowd Favorite: Cheesy Spinach Balls

A spinach recipe with cheese is a popular combination in a number of dishes, and these cheesy spinach balls are no exception. Bound to be a family favorite from here on out, this party appetizer is easy and super tasty. It's also a great appetizer to make for the Super Bowl, Stanley Cup finals, baseball season, and any other sports event.

Here's what you'll need for this fantastic spinach ball recipe:

  • 1 package of frozen, chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup stuffing mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine

First, cook the spinach. Make sure to drain the spinach well to get all of the excess water out and if necessary, use a strainer. While the spinach is cooking, put the stuffing in a plastic sandwich bag and go over it with a rolling pin. The goal of this is to remove the lumps from the stuffing. 

Once you have the cooked spinach and crushed the stuffing, mix them together in a bowl. Stir in the cheese, butter, and eggs. Once everything is mixed, roll the mix into small balls (the size of a large gumball). This recipe makes between 25-30 cheesy spinach balls. Place the rolled up balls onto a paper plate and freeze. Please note, you MUST freeze them before cooking. 

Once the spinach balls are frozen solid, you can put them in a plastic bag for easier storage. When you're ready to serve them, heat on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Check on them periodically as all ovens are different. 

 

This party recipe is sure to be a fan favorite at your next sports event, dinner party or neighborhood get together!
