I wanted to have something to bring to parties that was delicious, easy to prepare, and could be made ahead of time and frozen. This recipe is wonderful, and can be used for both casual events and more formal gatherings. Offering a variety of dipping sauces can make these tidbits a special treat, or just serving them warm on their own with a hearty chili and crusty bread will please any guests you are entertaining.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb frozen spinach thawed (do not drain)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese freshly shaved
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 3/4 cup bread crumbs plain

Method

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place thawed spinach, onion, and butter in food processor and blend together. Add eggs and mustard and process thoroughly. In a separate bowl mix Parmesan, garlic, cayenne pepper, thyme and bread crumbs together. Add the food processor mixture to the bowl. Use your hands to combine everything completely, then form into small balls and place closely together on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven until firm when touched (about 20 minutes). Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a platter and serve, or let cool completely and freeze for up to 1 month. Makes approximately 48 golf ball sized tidbits, delicious when served warm with sour cream for dipping.
