Perfect Bite Sized Spinach Balls for a Delicious Hors d'oeuvre

Hors d'oeuvres for St. Patrick's Day

When thinking of serving perfect bite sized hors d'oeuvres in keeping with the color green for St. Patrick's Day parties, this old recipe from one of my mother-in-law's best friends who lived in San Antonio, Texas came to mind.

We had tasted these delicious spinach balls at my mother-in-law's home many years ago after her friend had given her the recipe. When I was looking through my mother-in-law's recipe box and saw it, I was delighted! I had forgotten all about them but instantly remembered how we all really liked these tasty creations.

These little morsels of delectable goodness are not just for St. Patrick's Day. Now that I have found the recipe they will be made year round for many different occasions.

Since we will be joining friends this Sunday I thought that these would be perfect accompaniments to the rest of the meal.

The really nice thing is that they can be made up ahead of time and even frozen. When wanting to serve them just defrost and bake. I love recipes where one is not busy fussing with food at the last minute but can enjoy the conversation with guests.

Don't you feel the same?

Why Spinach is great for heart, brain, bones and eyes

Spinach

Remember your mother telling you to eat more vegetables?

Spinach is one that you should consider if you are not already eating it. There are many health benefits attributed to eating this dark green leafy vegetable. It is low calorie and packed with nutritious nutrients.

Remember Popeye the Sailor Man? It did wonders for him!

Assembling some of the ingredients to make the spinach balls.

Source

Okay...let's get busy making these delicious spinach balls!

Ingredients:

2 packages frozen chopped spinach (I used the square cartons available in most grocery stores.)

4 eggs

1 1/2 sticks butter

1/2 cup Parmesan Reggiano Cheese

2 cups Pepperidge Farm Herb stuffing mix (See note about Pepperidge Farm below.)

1 large onion, finely minced

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Minced onion...toothpick shown for comparison purposes as to the size of the finely minced onion.

Directions

These directions are really easy to follow!

  • After cooking the spinach per package directions place into a colander and drain the cooked spinach well.
  • Let it cool.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs and add the rest of the ingredients. Make sure the butter is softened before you begin.

If the butter is cold from the refrigerator and you simply cannot wait to make this mouth watering recipe, you can soften the butter by putting it in a glass dish and microwaving it for 20 to 30 seconds. Just do not have it totally melted and hot or it might scramble the eggs.

  • Chill at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Suggestion: These spinach balls can be made up to this point and frozen in plastic bags for later use. Just bring out however many you wish to bake and you will have easy to complete Hors d'oeuvres for your dinner parties or a tasty treat for yourself. Just let them thaw a bit prior to baking.

  • Bake 20 minutes in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven.

Enjoy them hot out of the oven or at room temperature. They are good both ways! Makes about 60 delectable spinach balls.

I told you that this would be an easy recipe to make. Enjoy and be prepared for many compliments!

Baked spinach balls ready to be enjoyed.  Just pop them in your mouth.  Bet you will want to eat more than one!

Please PUT SOME STARS on this recipe. Thanks!

4.8 out of 5 stars from 28 ratings of Spinach balls

Pepperidge Farm

This has been a favorite stuffing mix used by my family for years and no turkey dinner would be complete without some doctored up Pepperidge Farm stuffing.

It has a nice blending of flavors with flours (to make the dried bread crumbs) which include unbromated unbleached enriched wheat flour, whole wheat flour and malted barley flour. It also has spices and onion powder.

They have recipes on the package but we always add additional ingredients to our liking which include chopped parsley, chopped celery, chopped green onions, chopped mushrooms and cooked wild rice in addition to chicken broth in place of water. We have always loved that combination!

Pepperidge Farm as a company started with the efforts of one woman, Margaret Rudkin, who turned her superior bread making efforts into a successful industry.

From her kitchen to the boardroom of the Campbell Soup Company which eventually acquired her company and to writing a cookbook that ended up on the New York Times bestseller list, hers is a story of American ingenuity that is worthy of note.

Do you think that you will be making these delicious spinach balls?

      Hello MarloByDesign,

      They can easily be frozen ahead of baking but I have never frozen them after being baked. There have never been any leftovers needed to be frozen. Test it out to see by doing a couple of them...then you will know. Good luck...and enjoy! :)

      Hi Rachel,

      For non spinach eaters, these spinach balls could quite possibly change their mind as the flavor of the tiny mouth sized morsel takes it in a different direction.

      Wishing you a Happy Easter also!

      I was never a spinach fan from when I was little. But now with all the things you can do with it, I can eat it in certain recipes. This is one that I can probably eat. Thanks for sharing.

      Have a Blessed Easter

      Hi Rochelle,

      Too bad your husband cannot eat spinach due to medications he must take. Unless he does not like spinach, it would probably be cruel to make these delicious spinach balls at home knowing that he could not partake of them. Would be too tempting! Appreciate the shares.

      Hi colorfulone,

      So glad your sister made them; brought them with her and that you got to enjoy eating them. They would be nice little substitutes for meatless meatballs in a pasta sauce. Thanks for your review of the spinach balls.

      Susie Lehto 2 years ago from Minnesota

      My sister brought some of these yummy hors d'oeuvres when she came to visit. Mom and I really enjoyed them, Peg. They are light. And, would be great for meatless spaghetti balls. Spinach and any kind of tomatoes sauce are so good together.

      Peggy, my sister made these yesterday, and she really like them and will make some again. She froze some of the balls to bring with her the next time she comes to visit Mon and I. So! I will be looking forward to trying some then. You recipe gets 5 Stars from my sister!

      Hi colorfulone,

      So glad that you and your sister both like the sound of this recipe. I thought that the toothpick would give people the idea of just how fine the onion should be chopped. Thanks for noticing and mentioning it. Also appreciate the shares. Bon appetit! :)

    • colorfulone profile image

      Susie Lehto 2 years ago from Minnesota

      And, here is what me sister said, Peg. "I love the toothpick as comparison picture to make sure everyone chop the onion fine enough. I would love these and it would be easy to 1/2 the recipe. One way to use up fresh spinach getting a little long in the tooth, just cook it up. Its a delicious sounding recipe that just might get folks eating more power packed spinach. Will certainly give it a try, have been meaning to pick up some Parmesan."

    • colorfulone profile image

      Susie Lehto 2 years ago from Minnesota

      Oh my, those have to be delicious. I love all the ingredients, and especially that much butter used. I just might have to try this recipe. For share I will email this to my sister, because I know she will make it. Voted up!

      Hi aesta1,

      They are perfect for snacking without any kind of sauce, but if one is desired a good tomato based sauce would probably be a winner.

      My lovely wife introduced me to the joys of spinach nearly 13 years ago and I am grateful to her everyday for it. This recipe will be the first thing I make her when I see her next month. 5 Stars, voted up and useful. Can't wait to try these!

      Hi Marcy,

      The best part of all is that you can make these spinach balls when you have extra time...freeze them...and then they will be handy to use when you have company. Enjoy! Thanks for your comment.

      This sounds like it would be as yummy as those baby quiches we see in the store, without the extra calories of the crust. I love spinach, and also anything with cheese, so I need to refer back to this one the next time I am making a tray of appetizers!

      Hi Martie,

      I am growing Swiss chard and lots of it in our garden this year. May have to switch it for the spinach in this recipe. Am sure that it would also be good. Enjoy this spinach ball recipe. It is a winner in our book! Thanks for your comment.

      I love spinach. These little spinach balls look like my kind of food. I love the pictures of the Shih Tzu's. How does anyone get them to sit there like that? Up, useful, awesome, and interesting. Too bad they don't have a delicious.

      Hi dwachira,

      Yes, obviously these spinach balls can be enjoyed on a year round basis. Since I published this spinach ball recipe around St. Patrick's Day, I thought it would be cute to show my cousin's Shih Tzu dogs all dressed up for that occasion. :)) Appreciate your comment and the rest.
