When my husband and I first got married, we would have yearly New Year's Eve parties. They were a blast, and we had a great time making the menu and sharing our meals with others. This spinach balls recipe is one of our favorite appetizer recipes. It's easy to make ahead and delicious, too! Since then, I have made it every year for a great weeknight meal for my family. Try it out and see for yourself!
