Retro Spinach Balls

This is a dish we first had when visiting friends. Suzie said she had received the recipe from her high school boyfriend's mom, so you know it goes back a bit. And I think what I liked about it was that retro cocktail party feel they have, the hot, one bite appetizer you can prep ahead, and pop into the oven right before party time. 

My husband absolutely adores these, because they have a little bit of a Thanksgiving stuffing vibe about them, so if that is a flavor you like, make a double batch ! 

Retro Spinach Balls 
2 packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and water squeezed out 
1 large onion, finely diced 
3/4 cup butter
1 cup Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix, crushed finely 
1 tablespoon dried thyme 
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon salt 
6 eggs, beaten 
Melt butter in a large skillet. Saute onions until soft, then add spinach and saute for an additional 5 minutes. Remove to a mixing bowl and let cool. Add remaining ingredients, mix together and let sit for 10 minutes. Roll into one inch balls, and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until golden on top.
