Somehow the name “spinach balls” just doesn’t sound very appetizing to me, but when I read the recipe I can tell right away that if I found these on an hors d’oeuvres tray passed by some snooty waiter, I’d take one or three. I’m now opening the floor to suggestions for a new name for the aforementioned balls of spinach. Perhaps boule d’épinards? Which of course is just the French translation of spinach balls, but it sounds so much more Continental, don’t you think?
2 boxes chopped spinach, cooked and drained squeeze
1 small chopped onion
4 beaten eggs
3/4 cups marg
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cups Herb Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix
Mix all together, put in refrigerator for about 1 hour, roll into balls & freeze. Bake 15 min 350
These really do sound delicious. I’m a big spinach nerd. But I didn’t realize they even had —
I think I have a recipe almost identical to this in my recipe box. I got it from the older sister of a girlfriend of mine… we went to SF for T-Day weekend and visited them on the way back. This is one of the items they served us. They were so good I begged for the recipe. I think they were the ones who gave me my rum balls recipe, too.
Wonderful recipe just like my moms,I could not locate it so a big thanks for sharing!
