Spinach Balls

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by MommyMakes

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, who says these were my veggie-hating husband's favorite childhood snack. They are a great way to get kids to eat spinach!! Prep time includes chill time. This can be a little salty depending on the butter, cheese and bread crumbs you use, if you are concerned about saltiness use unsalted butter and garlic powder in place of the garlic salt. I have also made these with only 1/2 cup of melted butter (1 stick) and they are just as good but you need to spray the cookie sheet because they will stick.

these were great! only change i made was to use stovetop stuffing instead of the seasoned breadcrumbs. they were a bit tedious to roll into balls, so i refrigerated the mixture until it firmed up a bit and then rolled up. i flash froze and threw into a large ziplock until i needed them, which was great because i was able to make them well in advance. thanks for posting, will make again!
