Ralph's Famous Spinach Balls

Dee Dee Pettersen


My husband, Ralph, makes these spinach balls and they are always a big hit. People always ask for the recipe. I modified the recipe a tiny bit - Why? Always up to something! Can't leave a good thing alone. I hate margarine - so I used butter. Also, I used real grated Parmesan cheese and 3/4 C of it, where he used 1/2 cup of the finely grated Parmesan cheese in the round containers. We'll see how it goes. I'll be serving my version on January 21, 2014 at the Curious Cuisiners luncheon,.
