    These were very good. I havved the recipe and made regular sized burgers. Served with mashed potatoes and beef gravy. Very yummy and a good way to sneak the green stuff into DH although DD didn't fall for it....

    These meatballs were moist and wonderfully flavoursome. I moistened my bread with red wine instead of water, and I used baby spinach leaves, including the stalks which are always soft enough not to need removing. I halved the salt and doubled the garlic (personal taste preferences). Because I'm always trying to lower the fat content, I cooked my meatballs on a tray, covered loosely with foil, at a medium temperature in the oven for about 25 minutes. I also added 1/2 cup of fresh, chopped parsley in step 3. We ate these with pasta and MarraMamba's The Simplest Tomato Sauce Ever (Marcella Hazan) 273976. Loved these, mersaydees: thanks for sharing this great recipe which I know I'll make again. Made for NA*ME Tag.

    OOH!! Deep fried meatloaf meatballs with spinach to make them 'heathier'? Tough to beat that. Even THE PICKY ONE loved them! Fun to make, fun to eat & delicious. Made for NA*ME Tag. :)
