Spinach-Balls-1b

Ingredients

  • 2 10 oz packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed as dry as you can
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 tablespoons light butter, melted (I use Land O’Lakes light butter)
  • 6 oz seasoned stuffing mix, dry/unprepared (use your preferred flavor)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil lightly misted with cooking spray.
  • Break the eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Add the water, melted butter, stuffing mix, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and stir with a fork until well combined. Add the dry chopped spinach in and stir until thoroughly combined.
  • On a clean surface (I used a cutting mat), divide the mixture into 32 equal piles and roll/form into 32 balls (should be 1 – 1 ½ inch thick). Line the balls up on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes until heated through and lightly browned on the bottom.
