Yield: Around 20 Spinach Balls
-1, 10 oz package of frozen CHOPPED spinach
-3/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs (you can use gluten free breadcrumbs for this as well)
-1 large egg, whisked
-1 medium onion, minced
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1/2 stick + 1 tbsp butter
-1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
-1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
-1 tsp dried thyme
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the package of frozen spinach into a microwave safe bowl. Cook for about 6 minutes then side aside for now.
In a large pan, add 1 tablespoon butter, minced onion, and garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent (about 3 minutes). Add the pepper and thyme, stir well, then place the ingredients into a large mixing bowl with the chopped spinach. When the mixture has cooled, add the whisked egg, melted 1/2 stick of butter, breadcrumbs, and parmesan cheese. Stir well so that the mixture looks uniform.
Grease a large tray and form 1-inch diameter spinach balls. Place into the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the top gets golden brown. Enjoy!
