Spinach Balls are not only easy and fun to make but they also taste delicious! Chopped spinach is mixed with your favorite savory ingredients and rolled into cute bite sized balls that are perfect for lunch, dinner or any holiday occasion!
So you probably won't believe it but I’ve been making this yummy recipe since college...yes a long time! And it’s always been a favorite of mine. There are only 8 ingredients and it's super simple to make. So I am beyond excited to finally share this recipe with you today!
INGREDIENTS YOU'LL NEED
Chopped Spinach: Two small 9-10 oz frozen boxes of chopped spinach. Any brand will do, but it makes it easier if you can find a steamable microwave version.
Stuffing mix: There are a few different brands of stuffing mix out there. I use the stove top brand that is flavored with a cornbread seasoning. *(side note: I only use store bought stuffings for recipes like this, I make my own cornbread dressing lol.)
Seasoning: Italian seasoning and garlic powder is all the seasoning used for this recipe.
Onion: One small finely diced onion will give these spinach balls a ton of flavor!
Parmesan cheese: Just a little shredded parmesan cheese also adds great flavor to this recipe. Feel free to use fresh or prepackaged cheese.
Butter and Eggs: Both will help bind all the ingredients together. *I only have 3 eggs pictured below, but the recipe does need 4 eggs.
HOW TO MAKE SPINACH BALLS
Full instructions are included in the recipe card below, but here’s a quick overview:
Step One: Melt your butter in a small saucepan or in the microwave and set it aside to cool. Thaw and warm up your spinach in the microwave according to package instructions. Once completely thawed, allow spinach to cool slightly, then drain liquid in a colander or mesh bag.
Step Two: In a large bowl, combine stuffing mix, chopped onion, spices, melted butter, cheese, eggs and spinach. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Step Three: Using a spoon or medium cookie scoop, scoop small portions of mixture and roll using your hands into small balls. Place spinach balls on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet.
Step Four: Bake in the oven until done. I like to flip mine halfway through so both sides can get a little brown.
