Spinach Cheese Balls

We had a fun at our house this week with appetizer night for dinner. The kids thought it was cool and there was something for everybody.

One of the appetizer I prepared was Spinach Cheese Balls. This is a take on the traditional Sausage Cheese Balls, without the meat.

Recipe was slightly adapted from the original Betty Crocker recipe.

Spinach Cheese Balls


2 Cups fresh spinach, chopped (cooked until wilted) - it looks like a lot, but once it cooks down it really is not that much
1 Cup Heart Smart Bisquick

1 Cup mozzarella cheese

1 Cup cheddar cheese

1 Egg

1 Tsp Italian seasoning

1/2 Tsp garlic salt

1 Tsp fresh parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 400° and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Shape into 1-2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet.

Cook for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. May be served with pasta sauce or pizza sauce.
