    MommyMakes's Note:

    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!

      These are great! I even had several teenagers liking them. I made ahead of time, froze, thawed that day, and baked a few minutes before serving. Great recipe. Thanks.

      Oh, these are SO good and SO easy! I only had a 16-oz bag of spinach so I adjusted the measurements (and, since I eat low-carb, I used ground pork rinds in place of the bread crumbs). Well, I wish I'd gone to the store for more spinach. Much, much more. These are yummy, and even though my kids will probably adore them, they aren't going to get a chance tonight. This batch is mine, mine, MINE!
