Spinach and Red Pepper Balls

IMG_20130107_172826

To all my veggie lovers I think you’re gonna love this one.  These little Spinach and Red pepper balls are great. Enjoy them as an appetizer or if you would like in sauce and have yourself some veggie meatless balls.  There’s so much flavor packed in a little roll.  I didn’t fry these little guys either.  I baked them which cuts back on the fat.  I hope you enjoy them.

 1 (10 ounce) boxes frozen spinach, drained well

3/4 cup melted unsalted butter (you can use salted if you would like)

3 green onion stalks, chopped

4 eggs

1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optional)

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

2 cups seasoned bread crumbs

1 Red bell pepper, diced

Preparation:

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients until mixed well.  Next roll them into any size you would like.  Bake on 325 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until they have a golden toasted color to them.

Tip: if you think the mix is too thick you can add a 1/4 cup of milk.

    Omg! I’m definitely trying this… don’t use frozen spinach – ever! They lose their freshness and don’t taste anything. Always use fresh spinach from the grocery.

    1. I actually use both depending on what I am cooking.

      Although you can use fresh spinach in almost any recipe that calls for frozen spinach, the reverse is not always true. Only fresh spinach will suffice for raw preparations such as salads and sandwich toppings. In recipes that require cooking, compact frozen spinach may be easier to handle than fresh spinach leaves that cook down significantly. If you cook regularly, having both types of spinach on hand allows you to choose which form you prefer for a given dish.
