Spinach Balls are great hot and fresh out of the oven but are also great as they cool to room temperature, making them a perfect appetizer! These are always a huge hit!
Holy cow, you guys. I don’t remember summer being SO HARD in the past years. I mean, it’s SO HARD to get any work done. I don’t know if it’s the kids or just a general lack of motivation, but I’m struggling.
BUT I’m going to make the most it and do a ton of fun things with my kids this summer. I might even try to sleep for more than 5 hours a night, too.
I think I can, I think I can.
Right now I have two or three hours of kid free time for the first time this summer. I have a list approximately 2389124891428912489 items long and 3 hours to accomplish everything. There are baby ducks and baby swans (SWANS!) swimming in the river outside the window of the library where I’m working. And darling little kids feeding the ducks and swans. It’s not helping my productivity.
Also, I realize at first glance, this recipe for spinach balls may appear more suited for Christmas parties or New Years Eve parties (they would be perfect for NYE), but let me assure you, they’re perfect for summer parties too.
The first great thing about these spinach balls, especially in summer time, is that they are terrific fresh out of the oven, but also absolutely fantastic as they cool to room temperature. Meaning the last one is going to taste just as fabulous as the first one.
The next time that is great is that you can roll them a couple hours in advance and bake them right before your guests arrive.
Another absolutely fantastic thing is that these have some nutritional benefits, unlike some appetizers you might find at parties. I would eat these with a salad for lunch. They’re packed with spinach, whole wheat bread crumbs, and eggs. I brought them to a Memorial Day BBQ with my whipped feta dip and they were both a huge hit. My mother-in-law raaaaaaved about these (and kept the leftovers!).
