Garlic Spinach Balls

I found this recipe as a vegetable side dish, but we eat them as a vegetarian main dish. I have also seen them at The Motherload as appetizers! Very versatile!

Garlic Spinach Balls
Makes 4 servings

1 cup crushed seasoned stuffing mix
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
2 eggs lightly beaten
6 tablespoons butter melted
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic minced
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed dry

In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Stir in chopped spinach untl blended. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place in a greased 15 inch by 10 inch by 1 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Rita's notes: One 10 oz pakage of spinach makes about 9 ice cream scoop balls. I use the food processor to chop the stuffing mix, onions, garlic, then add the egg and pulse once or twice. Add spinach and pulse a little too - makes it easier to combine. Then put it in a bowl to scoop into balls.
