On the third day of Christmas…
Thinking up some appetizers for New Year’s Eve? Try our Spinach Balls. We served them on Christmas Eve, and switched them up for our gluten-free friends. The recipe is taken from “MaMa Mia Cucina”, substituting bread for gluten-free bread. A healthier fat may also be substituted, such as Earth Balance.
1 package chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup melted butter
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup day-old bread cubes, crumbled (or gluten-free bread cubes, crumbled)
Combine ingredients and chill for at least 1/2 hour. Form into balls and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Serve warm, or at room temperature
Great for parties, and can be prepared ahead of time.
