Spinach Feta Stuffing Balls [Holiday Recipe Exchange]

Typically I’m not much of an appetizer person.

I’d rather bring a dessert to a Holiday potluck because that’s just more my style.

I have a huge sweet tooth and I love to whip up desserts around the holidays.

From the moment I tried these Spinach Stuffing Balls when I was over at my friend Allison’s before Thanksgiving I was a fan.

What’s not to love?

Spinach, stuffing, herbs, butter and cheese all rolled up in a little ball?

I think I found an appetizer that not only do I like to eat – but is a cinch to make!

I did some searching online and found several versions of these fun Spinach Stuffing Balls.

I tweaked a few things until I felt that the recipe was perfect.

One of those tweaks was to include feta cheese in the mix.

I love feta.

I often have it in my fridge even if I don’t have plans to make anything in particular.

Feta is a great all purpose cheese and I love the flavor that it can add to the simplest of dishes.

Spinach Feta Stuffing Balls

Spinach Feta Stuffing Balls

Yield: 50 - 60 balls
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Stuffing makes a great appetizer when you are able to eat it with a toothpick! Give these amazing apps a try, you'll love the bite of the feta cheese.


  • 6 1/2 ounces dried stuffing cubes
  • 1 1/3 cups hot water
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 20 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme or oregano leaves
  • 1 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing cubes, water, and butter. Stir until well combined. After you have squeezed dry the spinach, chop it up even more than it was in the package so it isn't stringy. Add eggs and spinach. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. In a saute pan, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add the onion and saute until golden and tender, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic and saute for another 3 minutes. Turn heat off and transfer the onion mixture to the spinach mixture. Also add the thyme leaves and feta. Stir until evenly mixed.
  4. Shape into 50 - 60 one inch balls. Place on 2 parchment paper-lined cookie sheets. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 - 25 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Serve warm.

Regarding the Spinach Feta Stuffing Balls, the recipe calls for 6-1/2 ounces dried stuffing cubes. My question is, "Should the stuffing cubes be crushed? Thanks


Thursday 25th of April 2013

My stuffing cubes were pretty small in the bag. If they are large you can break them up but not completely crushed like breadcrumbs.

Feta and spinach in pastry shell were always one of the Rare ways I could get my kid to eat spinach when he was young. Yummy!

I created this recipe for a friends' dinner at my house and now it's often requested. Spring Salad with Feta Cheese Spring salad mix (fresh arugula & spinach leaves) Bosc pear Candied walnuts Feta cheese Dried cranberries or fresh raspberries Vinaigrette (my favorite is blush wine Brianna's brand) Rinse off lettuce and spin dry. Cut pear into slivvers. Lightly toss all ingredients together and serve with vinaigrette.
