Delicious Spinach Balls


Not a fan of meatless meals ? I know, Spinach Ball does not sound appetizing at all. Give this small round tasty meatless balls a chance. They are really good and very easy to make.

 



Ingredients:

2 (10 oz) packages frozen spinach
5-6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup onions, finely chopped or 2 tbsp onion powder
2 1/4 cups chicken stuffing or stuffing with herbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp  seasoned salt
1/4 tsp salt ( optional)
1/2 tsp pepper

optional: ( to serve with the spinach balls)
package of orzo
Parmesan cheese
dried parsley or dried basil
olive oil ( but can use butter too!)


Directions:

  1. Thaw the spinach and make sure that it is well drained.
  2. Mix all the seasoning in small bowl. Beat all the eggs in a separate medium size bowl
  3. In a separate big bowl combine the  thawed and well drained spinach , mixed seasonings , eggs, Parmesan cheese and the stuffing. Mix until well combined.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Prepare your cookie sheet by spraying it with cooking spray.
  6. Form into 1 inch balls . Bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Serve with simple orzo pasta ( recipe below).



 If you prefer to bake and freeze for later , remove it from the freezer 30 minutes prior to reheating, reheat on preheated oven for 10 minutes.

If you prefer to just prepare it and bake it for later , remove it also 30 minutes prior to baking and bake as directed above.


Serve it on top of simple orzo pasta. Recipe below..



For the simple orzo pasta  recipe to serve with the spinach balls, prepare Orzo according to package instruction. Drizzle with olive oil , mix in about 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and top with a few sprinkles of dried basil.



or you can just actually serve it as an appetizer, it is really really good with ranch dip.
