Spinach Parmesan Balls

I have the "Clark girls" to thank for this recipe! The Clark family is one of my family's closest friends. We refer to them as Aunt Holly and Uncle Andy and I consider their girls my dearest friends. I'm also pretty sure everyone in our town agrees that they should open their own bakery since they are such fabulous bakers! At a party a few weekends ago they made these spinach balls and kindly shared the recipe with me.

  • 2 packages frozen spinach
  • 2 cups herb stuffing mix (Pepperidge Farm)
  • 4 eggs, beaten well
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
First, cook the spinach and drain well. Then, it doesn't get any easier: mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Form into balls and bake in the oven at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes. Note: My Aunt Holly also mentioned that this recipe works best when you refrigerate the dough for about an hour before forming the balls. I didn't do this, but can see how it could keep the balls together better.

These make a great appetizer for any party! I ate about five at the party a few weekends ago and have been snacking on them all day. This recipe makes a lot (and it can easily be doubled for a larger party).

Check back tomorrow to see another item checked off of our Bucket List. Trust me, you won't want to miss this video!
