Spinach Balls

I was leery at first since I am not a big fan of cooked spinach, but these were really yummy!  A great way to get your kids to eat some spinach :)  I got this recipe from my friend, Amanda.

Spinach Balls: 
2 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix (or panko bread crumbs with some Italian seasoning mixed in)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4-1/2 cup minced onion
2 eggs
2 - 10oz packages frozen spinach - thawed and drained
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp salt (you can leave this out if you use the stuffing mix)
1/2 tsp garlic powder (or some fresh, minced garlic)
1/4 butter, melted

Combine stuffing, onion, cheese and seasonings.  Beat eggs well.  Mix together eggs, spinach and stuffing mixture.  Pour the melted butter over it; mix well.  Chill thoroughly.  Roll into 1 inch balls (or use a small ice cream scooper).

Bake at 350* for 15 minutes on parchment lined baking sheet. Super yummy!

Yay! I am so glad you liked! Another friend of mine made these and she sauteed her onions first before combining everything and she said that was a good change. :)
