Spinach Balls

Spinach Balls created by Izy Hossack

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.

    Instead of garlic powder and pepper, can I add Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix? Maybe a 3/4 to 1 teaspoon?

    Sauté onions in butter. Much better

    I started to ask about freezing them and see that's the first question. I will check out the answer, thanks.

    Hello! Can this be made days in advance and frozen? Then thaw before baking?

    We dont have boxes of frozen spinach at my shop but I have spinach in the garden. Is the boxed spinach cooked already?
