Spinach Balls

Spinach Balls

Somewhere between an appetizer and a side dish, Spinach Balls are super easy to make and a great way to get some healthy greens into your meal.

The original recipe calls for baking these spinach balls in a Dutch oven. However, if you want them extra crisp, you can fry them in a skillet with a bit of butter, or even deep fry them.

These are great with a dipping sauce or served on their own as a side dish to your meal.
