Spinach balls are the ultimate easy appetizer! I absolutely love them because they are so quick to prepare, always taste great, and a crowd pleaser. How many boxes of spinach to use is the biggest dilemma when making this satisfying snack.
This recipe makes about 5 balls depending how how big you make the balls. I'd recommend making a triple or quadruple batch!
Spinach Balls 1 box frozen spinach - thaw 1/2 c. stuffing mix (I use Pepperidge Farms Herb Seasoned Stuffing.) 1/3 cup chopped red onions. 2 tbsp melted butter 1 egg 1 tsp salt freshly ground pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Thaw the spinach. Squeeze in your hands to extract the water. Fluff up the spinach one you've removed as much water as you can. Add the remaining ingredients. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and rub oil on the foil to avoid sticking. Make 1 1/2 to 2 inch balls. Cook for about 18-20 minutes turning half way through cooking process.
Food is so intriguing. I’ve always loved to cook whether it’s casual and simple or complicated and elegant. After living in the Midwestern United States all my life I find myself jumping between All-American foods and foods from other cultures. There is definitely a sense of comfort with cooking and enjoying food that I’ve grown up with.
I have a voracious curiosity to learn about all cultures, especially the Middle East/Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai foods. I’ve learned that a simple curry dish or an Asian dumpling can transform your mood and be just as much of a comfort food as the foods you’ve known you’re whole life.
It is fascinating to me how each culture has such a diversity of ingredients, and when used with different combinations and cooking techniques you can easily transform the same few ingredients into a multitude of dishes. The unfamiliar, the diverse ingredients and techniques, can be intimidating to many people. I’ve created this blog to chronicle and share my explorations in the kitchen so that hopefully you will want to start experimenting in your kitchen.
