Spinach Balls

Spinach Balls, originally uploaded by Kim De.

The famous spinach balls. Famous world wide. Well, famous on the CLBB (also know as the Cooking Light Bulletin Board). Named for the member who first shared them. For years this recipe has been passed around, questions asked, variations shared. I, in fact, have varied the original recipe a bit.

Anyway, this is the first in a long line of holiday yummies I will share with you. Great for a party. Freezes well. Serve hot or at room temp. Spicy mustard for dipping, a MUST!

Lindrusso's Spinach Balls

2 packages frozen chopped spinach -- (10-ounce),-- thawed and squeezed dry
1 cup firmly packed grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter -- melted
4 scallions -- chopped
3 beaten eggs
1 dash nutmeg

1-1 1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl - Add the bread crumbs last, starting with 1 cup and adding by 1/4 cup until moist. Shape into 1-inch balls. Cover and refrigerate or freeze until ready to bake.

Arrange spinach balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes at 350 or until browned. Serve with your favorite mustard for dipping.
