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


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Cook’s Note

Wearing latex gloves while mixing and forming the balls is suggested.
