Ellen Rockne


2 (10-ounce) packages frozen spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
2 cups herbed stuffing mix
1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
8 tablespoons butter, melted
4 scallions, chopped, including some green
3 eggs, beaten
dash of nutmeg, preferably fresh grated

(Allow 4 hours for marinating--this sauce has a kick to it)
1/2 cup dry mustard
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup honey


Mix all of the ingredients for the spinach balls together, form into 1-inch balls,
refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. (They can also be frozen at this point).

Prepare sauce by mixing all ingredients. Let sit 4 hours.

If spinach balls have been frozen, bring them to room temperature. Preheat
oven to 350' F. Put the spinach balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake
10 minutes.

To serve, stick a toothpick into each one, for dipping into sauce. YUM.

Serves 20 as an appetizer.
