    Manami's Note:

    This recipe provided by Texas Beef Council. It is lean and packed with iron. Baked, not fried and can be frozen.Update: 03/13/2010 Elainemae, a reviewer suggested we use infant's rice cereal instead of breadcrumbs and it serves a dual purpose - increase the iron content. Great idea! :)

      I made these to have in sub rolls with provolone cheese on top and then baked in the oven till the roll was crunchy and the cheese was melted. We woofed them down and DH says they are a winner so I will certainly make them again!

      First of all I have to say I dislike spinach very much,but I was looking for a way to try to get it into my diet.I did a search and came across this recipe and decided to try it, and boy I'm glad I did. :) This recipe was made on 6/28/12. Except for using a 12 ounce package of spinach and a 20 ounce jar of sauce, the recipe was made exactly as it was written. The taste and texture was exactly what I expect in a meatball. Thank you for posting a recipe that has me enjoying spinach for the first time in my life. :) I " WILL " make this again. " Keep Smiling :) "

      This was a nice change! Very good too! :) I made minimal changes-I used gluten free bread crumbs and did not add the cheese (I should not have much dairy), did not see the seasonings and add between 1/2 and 3/4 cup of chopped onions. Thank you!
