Spinach Balls

Life has gotten in the way lately. 

I haven't had the time I'd like to spend in the kitchen or sit down with my laptop and share my adventures with all of you.

Between working with a catering company and being a wife and mother the hours in the day seem to escape me.

I haven't forgotten about you my friends.  My posts may be short and to point until after the holidays but, I promise to share something yummy with you when I can.

I made these spinach balls this weekend and they were a big hit!

They are so simple and tasty.

Spinach Balls

3 (6 ounce) boxes of stuffing mix--I used Stove Top Stuffing-your choice of flavor
2 (10 ounce) boxes frozen spinach--thawed and drained
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
4 tablespoons of margarine-melted
3/4-1 cup of water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Grease baking sheet-set aside

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined and stuffing mix is soft. Add more water if needed to make stuffing soft.

Scoop out 1-2 tablespoons of mixture and roll into a ball shape.

Place spinach balls on prepared baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart.

Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Should make 60-75 balls depending on size.


  1. You are a busy lady-glad you had time to squeeze in this post of a creative recipe. These balls sound delicious, great for dunking in soup or having with dip-yum!

  2. These sounds fantastic.... and I'm right there with you super busy. Such is life we just have to make it through the holidays then everything will slow down. :)

  3. Ah, allowing life to get in the way of the Internet? Shame on you! Congrats on living it as it should be....out there. :)

  10. I know what you mean about being busy! I can't seem to find much time lately myself. I really like these spinach balls. I think the kids would eat them ( i don't know what it is about kids and round foods, but it does help something go over better if it's round!) This would also be a great appetizer for a party!
