Spinach Balls

2 pkg (10 oz. each) frozen chopped spinach, cooked according to directions
3 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix
1 small onion, finely chopped
6 well beaten eggs
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) melted
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Drain spinach well and squeeze to remove excess moisture. Combine spinach with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate 10-15 minutes. After refrigeration, shape into 3/4" - 1" balls. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake 15-20 minutes or until they start browning slightly. Makes about 50.

The green color of the spinach makes these very attractive. The stuffing mix makes them taste like sausage balls. They are perfect for those who don't eat meat but will still eat cheese and butter. Changes to these could be with a different cheese such as Parmesan. You might add some finely chopped celery or green peppers. Try them and see what you might want to add. "Think with your taste."
