Spinach Balls recipe

Spinach Balls (Great for Football & Entertaining!)

I pretty much love spinach everything. E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, yo! I love it in my smoothies, I love it as a dip, quiche, lasagna, and more! I blame my parents for this love of spinach, they’d always get me to eat it asking if I wanted to be “strong like Popeye” when I was a child (and it worked, haha)!

When a neighbor-friend of mine came over one day with spinach balls and a homemade dill dip, I nearly jumped out of my skin, squealing in excitement to sample her recipe (and then, afterwards, beg for it, lol). I loved every single morsel of what she created, and decided to take on a version of the recipe myself with potential alterations for those who choose to go gluten-free/no-carb, like I do.

Can I Make Spinach Balls in Bulk?

Absolutely! When you’ve got company coming over, or you’re bringing a dish to a friend’s party, you want something TASTY, right? With football season in full swing, I always like to change-up what I bring while keeping the dish simple and replicable. This recipe could easily be doubled or tripled for larger crowds (or for bulk cooking to snack on yourself, ahem), it is THAT GOOD! Let’s get to it!!

How to Make This Spinach Balls Appetizer Recipe

Preheat your oven to 350; whisk together your eggs in a large bowl, and season generously with fresh ground salt and pepper. Add your thawed and drained spinach to the whisked eggs, mix together thoroughly until spinach is well covered by the egg. Add in the remaining ingredients, stir well, until well-combined.

NOTE: To make it gluten-free, use almond flour instead of regular flour, and omit the bread crumbs, adding in the same amount of almond flour as you would have added in bread crumbs. The almond flour tastes just as delicious (just be sure to season more generously).

adding ingredients for spinach balls

I mashed the spinach multiple times while mixing, to ensure it’s all broken apart and mixed well. Get a little elbow grease into it, you want to be sure everything is well-mixed, so every bite is even and delectable as the next.

mixed together ingredients for spinach balls

Using a cookie scoop, a meatballer, or just a teaspoon and your hands, form a little scoop into the shape of a ball and place on a sprayed/lined cookie or baking sheet or baking stones. They don’t rise or spread, so you can put them pretty closely together on the sheet/stone.

Bake until golden brown on top. This will seemingly take FOREVER (it doesn’t). Try not to pace frantically in the kitchen while eagerly awaiting these to finish baking, the smells from your oven will beckon you – go clean something! LOL!

But, oh!! When they’re ready, remember to let them cool, or you’ll burn the roof of your mouth, and then we’ll all be sad, because you won’t be able to binge-eat, err, have a couple, responsibly (ahem). Let them cool at least 5-10 minutes, it will be agonizing to wait more (I KNOW IT, FRIEND), but you can do it!!  I have faith in you!
