Spinach Balls

We are about to wrap up day four of Mom’s visit, and we spent most of the day working on outdoor projects.  Mom weeded and planted flowers while I did a major curb appeal project that added some more pizzazz to our 1928 bungalow.  We’ll be showing you the final results Monday.  Meanwhile, I had some friends over for drinks and tapas last week, and I made these delicious spinach balls.  They were easy and a little bit nourishing.  We all decided they would probably make good patties for anyone who wants a burger sensation without the meat.

1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained (I used 16 ounces)

2 cups finely crushed herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 cup melted butter

3 eggs, beaten

 

 

 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 – In a large bowl, combine spinach, stuffing mix, Pamesan cheese, garlic powder, black pepper, Italian seasoning, melted butter and eggs.  Shape into walnut-sized balls and place on a baking sheet.

 – Bake in the preheated over for 20 minutes, or until heated through and browned.

 

We have a big week-end planned.  Tonight we are off to Shakespeare in the Park, and on Sunday we will be cheering on Mr. Spring in a half Ironman.  Somewhere in between we are going to squeeze in “Jersey Boys”.  Mom had every single one of the Four Seasons’ albums when she was a teen, and we have both seen the musical on Broadway.  It should be fun.  Have a good one!

 

Cheers!
