Savory Spinach Bites

Category: Lunch/Snacks, Eggs, Savory Pies

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (about 1 clove)
  • 2 10-ounces packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 8-ounce bag of herbed seasoned stuffing mix***I use Pepperidge Farm because it”™s the only vegetarian stuffing around. Which is sad, because I used to love Stove Top brand but then discovered that their “Cornbread” stuffing actually contained chicken. :( ******DO NOT PRE-COOK THE STUFFING. USE IT RIGHT FROM THE PACKAGE, DRY.
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter.

3. Add onion and cook until the onions are translucent and soft, about 5 minutes or so.

4. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.

5. In the meantime, remove excess water from thawed spinach by pressing it between paper towels. **You do not need to cook the spinach.

6. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing mix, spinach, eggs, Parmesan, salt and pepper, and onion/garlic mixture. Combine well.

7. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

8. One at a time, using your hands, roll the mixture into individual 1-inch balls. Place each one on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

9. Bake the balls for about 15-20 minutes, or until very slightly browned. **Your kitchen will smell fantastic, I promise.

Dipping sauces: I used marinara, but you could use Ranch dressing, sour cream, horseradish, etc. Whatever you like!
