|The mixture before running the food processor|
Sorry there is no finished picture (got distracted with party guests) but this little buggers are delish! I first had these tasty treats Christmas of 2013. I fell in love with them. I demanded the recipe from a friend and just finally got the recipe. THANK HEAVENS!
They look like a falafel. They kinda taste like one too! They are a great appetizer to have at a party when all you have is a crazy amount of dips and fatty items. They are the perfect finger food. I frankly will eat most appetizers that is shaped like a ball. There was actually a suggestion at my New Years Party that we have a party where people must bring food shaped into balls. I see no problem as long as you describe the party parameters clearly.
This will be a recipe that I will try to play with... ;) I think I can even improve on this recipe even more! I want to try it with Feta instead of the cheddar cheese. I love those flavors! I also want to make a garlic dip for these bad boys.
Go ahead and make them for Superbowl. Nobody will question that you are feeding them onions and spinach!
2 pkg frozen spinach, thawed
1 pkg frozen onion, thawed
2 c bread crumbs (could be gluten free if you wanted)
1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon pepper
8 crushed garlic cloves
Mix together in a food processor until combined. Create 1 inch balls of the mixture ( I used my cookie scoop) and place on a cookie sheet. At this point you are supposed to refridgerate over night. I didn't do this but if you skip this step you should put them in the freezer for a bit so they can harden up and keep their shape when you cook them.I used a silpat. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until browned. Serve warm.
