Measure Ingredient
1 pack (10 Oz) Spinach, frozen, chopped
¾ cup Swiss Cheese, shredded

¼ cup Dry Bread Crumbs
1 tablespoon Onion, grated
1 \N Egg, beaten

1. Place spinach pkg in microwave and cook on High 4 to 5 mins or until defrosted. (Adjust for your oven). Drain, pressing down hard to extract as much liquid as possible.

Place on wax paper-lined baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze overnight. (To keep longer, pack in dozen lots in suitable freezer containers and label. Keep no longer than 2 weeks.)

3. To serve, place balls on microwavable paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Microwave on High for 2 mins. (Adjust for your oven.) Reduce power to Medium or half power. Microwave 4 ½ to 6 mins, or until hot and just set, rearranging once or twice.
