Cheese & Spinach Puffs

Taken from a Nov, 1987 SL magazine, this is a great appetizer to take to all those holiday parties. It is quick and easy. The flavor is really so good. Actually they are a great way to get little ones to eat “their spinach”. Popeye would love these.

1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup water

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup (2 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese

1/4 cup plus 2 tables commercial blue cheese dressing, or if you are like me and do not like blue cheese, use Ranch Dressing

1/4 teas garlic powder

1 (8 1/2 oz) package corn muffin mix (Jiffy is a good one)

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Drain very well, squeezing to remove excess liquid. Combine spinach mixture and remaining ingredients; stir well. Cover and chill 2 hours.

Shape mixture into 1″ balls and place 1 1/2″ apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Chill 30 minutes before baking.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes; serve warm.

Yields: 4 dozen
