Just mix and form patties from spinach, onion, and eggs and fry for a great and healthy treat.

  • Servings: 6

Ingredients:

2× 10 oz Chopped Frozen Spinach
1 Large Onion Chopped
¾ cup Bread Crumbs, unflavored
4 Large Eggs Beaten
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Cooking Spray
3 Tbsp or As Needed Vegetable Oil

Directions:

Thaw spinach and squeeze out water. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat a little oil in the skillet and saute onion until soft and translucent (5-10 minutes) Remove skillet from heat and add the spinach, bread crumbs, beaten eggs and salt and pepper to taste, Stir together, remove the mixture to a mixing bowl and mix well. Shape spinach mixture into patties. Spray a large stainless steel skillet with cooking spray. Heat about i/4 inch oil in the skillet. Fry spinach patties in batches until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels.

Helpful Tips:

This spinach absorbs a good deal of salt so you need to keep tasting it to see if there is enough salt. The size of the patties can vary, I like mine small. The amount of bread crumbs needed may vary so start with 1/2 cup at first and keep adding as needed.
