Spinach cheese bites

I grew up with a version of this recipe. It works with kale & chard too. I just happened to have spinach

  • 1 bunch of fresh spinach
  • 1/2 bunch scallions
  • 1/2 yellow or sweet onion
  • bell pepper optional
  • 1 pita or 1 piece of bread of any kind
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t garlic paste
  • 1-2 oz pepper jack cheese shredded (you can use Parmesan or cheddar too. Pepper jack adds a little kick)
  • chilli pepper flakes
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Sautee onion and green onion until soft. Add spinach and pepper if using.
  3. Saute until spinach is wilted.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  5. Chop up bread into small pieces
  6. Mix up with spinach mixture.
  7. Add egg, cheese, chilli, salt & pepper.
  8. The mixture should form into balls. If it releases water, drain out the water.
  9. bake at 350 until balls hold together, are slightly golden, and the cheese is melted.
