Amazing Appetizer – Spinach Bites

This has been a busy month! We moved, it’s Christmas, and it’s my sister’s 30th birthday! This year we decided to throw her a party at our new house. I plan on doing a whole run down on all the menu items and decorations but for now here is another great appetizer recipe!

Since the party day will be super busy I made these ahead of time and froze them. I love things like this because I much rather make my own appies then use store bought stuff.

Don’t let the spinach fool you, these are not the healthy-est but they sure are delicious and very easy to make! Besides, it’s Christmas….the diet starts January 1st, right?! ;)

  • 1 package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 boxes of Stove Top stuffing (Chicken)
  • ¾ cup of melted butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • Ground Pepper to taste 

1. In a large bowl combine the spinach (make sure you squeeze every last of moisture out of it) stuffing, and cheese. Add in the melted butter, eggs and pepper. Mix well.

2. Chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes. This gives the stuffing a chance to soak up some of the butter and egg.

3. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with wax paper. Roll mixture into balls (approx. 1’’ in size) and place on baking sheet. Place tray into freezer until they firm up, then transfer to a large zip lock bag and store in the freezer. When ready to bake, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with tin foil and spraying it with pam (trust me, these things will bake right on otherwise) and bake at 375 degrees for about 16 minutes, tops should get golden brown.
