Sheila Allen’s Spinach Balls (Thanksgiving Recipe Series)

My daughters, who are now in their mid-twenties, began eating these spinach balls (nearly everyday!) as babies and still love them! A perfect recipe for kids to help make!


• 2 10-ounce packages frozen, chopped spinach
• 2 cups crushed Pepperidge Farm stuffing
• 1 medium onion , finely chopped
• 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or ½ cup grated Parmesan and ½ cup grated or finely shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese)
• 4 eggs, lightly beaten
• ½ cup butter, softened
• pinch garlic salt
• pinch ground thyme

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Defrost spinach and squeeze dry.
Mix all ingredients.
Form into balls 1½ inches in diameter.
