JDs HOLIDAY SPINACH AND SAUSAGE BALLS

This is an old recipe from a Jimmy Dean Sausage Advertisement.

1/2 lb Jimmy Dean Sausage crumbled, cooked and drained
2 pkgs (10-oz each) frozen chopped spinach
1 bag (16-oz) herbed stuffing mix
1 1/2 sticks margarine, melted
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 T. thyme
4 eggs, beaten
1 large onion, chopped
1 T. garlic salt
1/4 T. black pepper
1 T. seasoning salt

Cook (without salt)and drain the spinach.

Melt the margarine and saute the onion.

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl until mixed well. Chill for 1 hour.

Roll the sausage mixture into 1-inch blls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until browned and sausage is cooked. Keep on a warming tray for serving.

Yield: Approximately 56 sausage balls.

Love this! Except I use Jones Farm sausage (GF) and homemade GF stuffing mix. Not sure if Jimmy Dean sausage is GF. This may be helpful for your cousin? Holidays are coming up fast! Thanks as always for these wonderful retro recipes! So comforting.
