Spinach-Cheese Balls

Tonight we had a crowd for dinner. Our Pseudo daughter Doris was back for a visit with her boyfriend. My daughter and her band mate were here for a night session of music practice. My son and his girlfriend were here. Also my husband and I were here. So that is 8 for dinner. No problem.
As I was busy slaving away in the kitchen, I could tell everyone was hungry. How to feed a crowd quickly? Spinach-Cheese Balls. Everyone enjoyed them and I was lucky to end up with one. This recipe is fast and easy. I hope you enjoy it!
