Rated 5 out of 5 by from These spinach balls were so good. These spinach balls were so good. I was reheating them the day after I made them as I placed a call to a director at the hospital where I work. Her voicemail came on and I thought I had hung up but apparently I didn't, and I left her a long message where I proclaimed my love for these in song. They are good enough to suffer public humiliation for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm glad I didn't make these to bring to a potluck without trying them myself first. I'm glad I didn't make these to bring to a potluck without trying them myself first. I think they were a bit dry and were also overwhelmed a little by the spinach. I think I would use the chicken, turkey or pork stuffing mix if I make them again. Monterey did not have as much flavor. I might go with Mozerella cheese too which is not quite so dry. I noticed some could not find the Monterey Style and used the chicken. That is probably why they liked it better. I will try them again, with a little variation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coming up on Memorial Day Weekend. Coming up on Memorial Day Weekend. #1 request,these Spinach Balls. So I am starting this weekend and make triple batch, one low sodium chicken, one savory and going to try new whole wheat stuffing. I freeze these a dozen to a sandwich bag and then put in freezer bags. Easy to pull out at short notice. I have been making these so long, my recipe says Monterey Stuffing that isn't even made anymore. This recipe that doesn't need "doctored", just change the stuffing you change the flavor.

I discovered these spinach balls when my niece decided that she was tired on Thanksgiving Eve and asked if I would make these for her. I made them up and covered them well with Saran Wrap. The next day when we were ready, we just popped them in the over. Everyone talked about how great they were. I don't even eat spinach, but had to try them. Guess what, I made them again for the gang on Christmas Eve. Once again, success. Just remember to get that spinach out and get it thawed!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOve these but did add a few things to it. LOve these but did add a few things to it. Being from Cajun Country we did a little more spice. I added red pepper flakes, garlic powder, Creole Seasoning and a little black pepper. DELISH!! Made two batches and had NONE left. Everyone got a copy of the recipe and I know that 7 have already made their's because I got calls as to portions for seasoning. To each his own when it omes to seasoning. Thanks for a great starter recipe. We will be adding this to our party favorites!

I made these using only 1 bag of spinach and was going to just half the rest of the recipe, but as I was mixing it seemed like there wasn't enough wet ingredients. So I used all of the ingredients and just half the spinach and it still tasted great! Little difficult to form into balls though, and I couldn't find the montery stuffing mix either, but used sage also and it was very tasty! I would definetley make these again!

These went over great with everyone when I made them for a family gathering on New Year's Day. There were leftovers of everyting except these (glad I left some at home!) I even talked the non spinach eaters into tasting them and they then went back for more! I had no trouble with them holding their shape as some other reviewers had - I tried both the mini muffin tins and cookie sheet. Either way worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I make these every year for Halloween. I make these every year for Halloween. My kids love taking "witchy-warts" in as their party treat. If the teachers are okay with it, I sometimes send marinara in a mini crockpot so they can serve "blood brew" as a dip with them. On a day overflowing with sugar and junk, these are a nice way to sneak in some yummy nutrition. If you can find a better way to sneak spinach into a class party, let me know!!!
