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.
These easy-to-make little appetizers are wonderful to have on hand for guests, and they can be made ahead and frozen!
Servings: 20 (2 spinach balls per serving)
- Two 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed & squeezed dry
- 1 cup dried boxed stuffing mix (crumbled)
- 4 large eggs
- ¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- ½ teaspoon thyme
- ¼ cup melted butter
- 1 medium garlic clove, crushed
- salt and pepper, to taste
- In a medium sized bowl, mix spinach with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
- Remove from refrigerator and roll into 1-inch balls (you should be able to create about 40).
- Place onto cookie sheets.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!

Love these for my toddler (14 months) son. Easy way to get spinach in and protein with the egg and cheese. He loves them.
I make a batch and freeze and pull out for an easy veg side for him.
Thanks for the recipe
