Author Notes: When I was catering, we kept these little beauties in the freezer ALL the time for "emergencies." I still try to never be without a bag or two of them around. They are a tasty addition to a cocktail party, and great to pull out for last-minute company. The Mustard Sauce is also very versatile. These are really good at room temperature, and make great "road food."ChefJune

Makes 70 pieces

Spinach Balls

  • 2 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed & squeezed dry

  1. Combine all ingredients except mustard sauce, and mix well.
  2. Shape into 1-inch balls.

  1. Combine mustard and vinegar. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 4 hours.
  2. Mix sugar and egg yolk in a small saucepan. Add mustard-vinegar mixture and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Cover and chill.

I don't mean to be a party-pooper, but you might want to reference where you got this recipe from in the notes. There are many almost identical recipes all over the internet on other cooking sites.

These are fantastic!! Thank you so much for sharing!

Question: I made 300 of them tonight (recipe x 4) for a fundraiser on Wednesday night. Should I refrigerate them or freeze them until then?

Wow! Thanks for refreshing my memory! My mother in law made these years ago (and often) with the mustard sauce. I had forgotten about them.

June is a trusted source on General Cooking.

Yes, I have always baked them before freezing.

Do you bake the spinach balls before you freeze them? I cook for a lot of big groups and this sounds like a keeper! thanks!
