Tasted great- however, I needed to add alot more stuffing mix to make them dry enough to make into balls- and I drained the spinach very well. I almost doubled the amount of stuffing. I will make these again!

OMG!!! THESE ARE SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!! Made them today to freeze and take for appetizers on Thanksgiving. Had to try to see how they tasted and I have to quick get them in the freezer before I eat too many! I did make a few changes to original recipe. I only used 3 eggs, I only used 1/4 cup melted butter and sprayed the balls with a little cooking spray before putting them in the oven, I also added 5 grated cloves of garlic and only 1/2 tsp salt. I also used 2 16oz packages frozen spinach so I used 3 cups stuffing mix. SO DELICIOUS!!! LOVE EM!!! Can't wait to share!

Very good- will make again. I don't think it's the liquid in the spinach (squeezed well). I think it's the amount of eggs. Next time I'll use 3 eggs instead of 6. I had to double the amount of stuffing this first time. 1-1-10-- I made again last night and cut in 1/2-- started with 1 egg, but added another after everything was mixed together. Yummy, and there were none left to bring home when the party was over.

I am SOOO glad I didn't rate these when I first made them. I HATED them when they first came out of the oven, so much so that I almost threw them out! However, I decided to put them in the refrigerator and take them with me to visit my parents in a couple days so they could try them. I microwaved a couple, let them take a bite, and prepared for the "Ewww!"s I figured were coming. HOWEVER, they LOVED them! They raved and raved over them, as did my uncle. I tried one...Yep, MUCH better! Straight out of the oven, the texture was weird...crunchy on the outside. And they were SOOO salty-tasting. But, 2 days later, delish! My family has already requested these for Thanksgiving. Thank you! **Update** I forgot to add that I also had to add quite a bit more stuffing than called for, even though I decreased the number of eggs to 4. Next time, I'll be sure to drain the spinach a little better.

I love these! They are sort of strange looking, but not 1 person could eat just one. They went over well. I did however use only 2 eggs and substituted lots of chopped garlic for the salt. Will make again!

I made this for my Feed the Cooks dinner after a church event at which they worked very hard. The balls were gobbled up post haste. Having no herb stuffing mix (I don't use many prepackaged things), I used panko and seasoned it myself. At the end I added another 1/2 to 1 cup of panko and about 1/2 cup mozzerella. Both additions were a good choice. Could use a little kosher salt before they go in the oven.

These were SO SO SO good! I made a few changes based on previous reviews and they came out perfect. I could hardly stop eating them.

I only used 3 eggs, about 3 cups of herbed stuffing cubes from a bag, and accidentally used a whole stick of melted butter.

Really, really good.

Very good (I used my own breadcrumbs and spice mix). One guest suggested using feta cheese next time... since there WILL be a next time!

These are great and very easy to make. You can also use a stuffing mix and use the herb packet instead of the spices listed in the recipe and it works great. The other trick is to chill the mix and it will form into balls much easier.

HUGE hit! I made my own bread crumbs by using my favorite whole wheat bread (Complete Protein by Alvarado St. Bakery), baking it for about thirty minutes in a 350 oven, then adding it along with spices to the food processor. I only used 1/2 of a medium sized onion. Like others reduced the eggs to three and sub-ed fresh garlic (two cloves) for the garlic salt. I used shredded instead of grated parm and it seemed to work out well. I didn't add the thyme because of all the herbs that were in my bread crumbs. I added a few pinches of cayenne. They ended up needing about 35 minutes to get toasty and they were sizzling in all that butter! They filled the kitchen with a lovely rich smell and were gone faster than any other dish on the table. It is possible to make a vegetarian Southern side! Thanks!
