Here is the basic recipe. It calls for 1 pkg of spinach but I use 2. 1 pkg
is not enough with all of the other ingredients. You don't have to use the
Italian bread crumbs but if you don't use them, additional seasoning will
be needed. These are also good with a good tomato style sauce and I always
garnish by sprinkling more parmesan on top. This recipe can be found on
FooTV but I can't remember which episode it was on.

1 pound package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
5 eggs
1 large onion, minced
10 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 cup shredded Parmesan
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 3/4 cups Italian-style bread crumbs



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Squeeze the excess water from the spinach and put it in a large mixing
bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well by hand.* Form the mixture
into 1-inch balls, either by hand or with a small ice cream scoop. Place
the balls closely together on a baking sheet.

Cook in the top half of the oven until firm to the touch, about 20 to 25
minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, and then transfer to a platter and serve
immediately.

Okay, they sound wonderful, Michael. I'm putting them on the menu for
Christmas! Thank you a whole bunch (of spinach - <grin>).

I saw the Hearty Boys make that this weekend, I remember how
they specified use margarine, not butter. Looked good to me,
but all their food looks good to me.

Use margarine, not butter? Huh? Margarine isn't invited into this
household. Now what do I do? <g>

I don't think that's where the recipe comes from, I might be wrong though.
There is another variation out there that uses ricotta cheese and parmesan.
Looks way too messy for me. I like this recipe except I do use 2 pkgs of
the spinach instead of 1.

Butter will make them a bit drier due to butter leakage. Margarine is the
best bet but if you use butter, ya' might want to consider the tomato sauce
option.

I agree, but they made a point of it, the butter leaks and make
them too greasy or something like that. I take their word for
it, it's not like they usually skimp on ingredients.

Looks good! If you don't coat them in tomato sauce, can they be
finger food?
