Lindrusso’s Spinach Balls

Serve these bite-sized spinach and parmesan morsels with your favorite mustard for a tangy appetizer offering!

These spinach balls are pretty famous with a group of my online cooking buddies, who have all been making them for yeeeeears.

I finally got on board and made these as an appetizer for my friend Jenn for one of our weekend slumber parties.

These were easy to make, and they make a LOT! I liked them even better leftover the next day. I think that the mustard for dipping is key, as the tanginess really brightens up each bite.

These would be great for a potluck or dinner party, and I’m told they freeze really well, too!
