Spinach is a nutritional powerhouse...a "super food". So of course for me to like it I need to disguise it!! Think spinach dip or artichoke and spinach dip. I make my sauteed spinach with a ton of garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar...see what I mean...I need to hide the spinach taste! Anyway, a couple of years ago I was fooling around with ingredients to make spinach balls that I would eat...they were ok...then my friend Amanda made them but she added in Muenster cheese...and that made all the difference...I love these!! Yeah Amanda!! You can make a ton, transport them and cook on site wherever you are going. You can freeze them in batches and just pull out for a quick app for drop by company. They are so stinking easy...that when the mood strikes a few minutes in your kitchen yields a tasty treat and the perk...antioxidants and a ton of vitamins!! Kids like them too!
