Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Defrost the spinach according to package directions. Squeeze all of the water out of the spinach and place the spinach in a large bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix gently to combine. Form the mixture into 24 meatballs, about 1-½ inches in diameter.
  3. Grease a baking sheet with the olive oil. Place the meatballs on the baking sheet and bake in the oven, 15-18 minutes until lightly golden and cooked through. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

*To make fresh breadcrumbs, break the bread into pieces and pulse in a mini food processor until crumbs form. If using packaged dried breadcrumbs, decrease the amount to ½ cup. To make this recipe gluten free, substitute ½ ground oats (certified gluten free) for the breadcrumbs.
