They really do tick all the boxes being quick, easy and healthy. They are a great recipe to have on standby and did we mention delicious! They are the perfect savoury treat and they really do fly off the plate! You can prepare ahead and freeze them uncooked or cooked. So, what do you need to make your own Spinach Balls? Let’s look at the Shopping list.
You are going to need some seasoned stuffing crumbs and the good news is that frozen spinach is perfectly acceptable for this recipe. In truth according to many, you will not taste the difference! Of course, you can use fresh, it all comes down to personal taste. Be sure though that it is well-drained. A piece of self absorbent paper is good to have on hand. Apart from that, grab an onion, eggs, some melted butter and Parmesan. Easy peasy ..
You simply combine your ingredients and then roll them into little balls and pop them on your baking tray! They take less than 10 minutes to make, 20 minutes to bake and they are ready to eat in half an hour.
You can even make them in your Air Fryer too.
We have included a short video from the fabulous Sarah of ‘Average Betty’ – she has her own Youtube Channel and she got the recipe from her Aunt Kathy who got it from her Aunt Lil .. That’s why she calls her Spinach Balls ‘Lil Balls’ – to view the video click Play above ^^^ and continue scrolling for more delicious Spinach inspired recipes.
