I was recently on a "booze cruise" with a bunch of moms (and excuse me while I cry for not being there this very second). We sailed along on a water ferry, drinking wine, eating appetizers and talking about how our kids and husbands drive us crazy! Juuuuuust kiddddddding. Anyways. Someone made these Spinach Balls and they were FANTASTIC. I asked her if I could share the recipe and she said yes, so here it is! Funny story though, I made them over the weekend and forgot one giant ingredient: the 3/4 cup of butter. I realized this after my first bite and wondered why they didn't taste as addictive as they had on the boat. Butter... butter makes everything better. However, they were still pretty good without the butter so if you're in the mood to make them SUPER healthy, you can go ahead and omit it. (But I wouldn't recommend it cause I don't recommend those kind of things.)
(Makes approx. 45)
2 packages 10oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 tsp pepper
Pinch of salt (I was generous here)
Combine all ingredients, roll into small bowls, place on a baking sheet (I greased mine) and bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees, until the edges are golden. Enjoy!
The next morning I sautéed the leftovers in BUTTER and added a fried egg. Yum.
