Spinach Balls

These are great for parties and family get-togethers. This recipe makes about 6 dozen. You can make them ahead of time and freeze. Just take them out and thaw them about an hour before baking.

2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
2 cups Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 onion, finely chopped
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t basil
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine ingredients. Mix well. Shape the mixture into 1 inch balls (If you make them with a cookie scoop, they will be the same size and cook at the same rate.).

** To make ahead... Freeze. Thaw 1 hour before baking.

Arrange the balls in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve on a hot plate or tray. Make approximately 70 balls.
