Spinach Cheese Puffies

READY IN: 1hr 29mins
Recipe by Lorac

A perfect appetizer for your next family gathering or party. A make ahead recipe that is quick, easy and delicious. I would suggest serving the puffies with Dorothy Parks' Horseradish Cream (Horseradish Cream). Prep time includes refrigeration.

I don't like spinach, but these are delicious. I love that they can be made ahead of time and frozen. I used them at a wedding reception, making them small enough to fit in mini silver baking cups, and the presentation was very appealing. I did have trouble with them setting up because the step for squeezing and draining the spinach was omitted from the recipe, but I was able to salvage them by adding corn meal and flour a little at a time until they thickened. The flavor was still delicious, even with these additions.
