Spinach Balls

My mother has made these little Spinach Balls as a holiday appetizer for her annual Christmas party for as many years back as I can remember. They’re an easy little bite to put together and they’re always a bit hit at her party.

Yield: About 40 appetizers

Prep Time: 20 minutes + refrigeration time

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Spinach Balls


  • 2 (10 ounce packages) frozen chopped spinach, thawed & squeezed dry
  • 1 cup dried boxed stuffing mix (crumbled)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix spinach with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Roll into 1-inch balls (you should be able to create about 40). Place onto cookie sheets.
  2. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees.  Serve warm.


*These freeze well. Just pop them into the oven while frozen and they should bake up just fine. *I can't help wondering what it would be like to add finely chopped sundried tomato to these spinach balls. Sounds like a good idea to me 🙂
