Too Good To Only Be Toddler Food

I made these Spinach Nuggets last week. I got the recipe from a toddler food idea website. OMG, seriously, the hubby and I were praying the toddler would hate them so that we could eat all of them ourselves. No such luck, he fervently popped them in his mouth like he hadn't eaten in weeks. Anyhow, I had posted this recipe on one of my other blogs, but at that point, I had not made them. Here is the recipe again with pictures of the ones I actually made. These would make excellent appetizers. I have already added the recipe to my "party recipes" file.

Spinach Nuggets
1 16-oz package frozen chopped spinach, cooked, drained, and chopped further if needed
1 cup whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs
1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 eggs or 5 egg whites

Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
Combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.
*Add seasonings if you like - garlic powder, pepper, extra basil & oregano for example.
Add a fruit or veggie puree to substitute for the eggs if desired.
Shape mixture into nuggets or fun shapes such as squares or squigglies this point, you can cook as they are or lightly coat each nugget with some bread crumbs and place on baking tray.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turn nuggets over after 15 minutes.
Serve warm.

I love your site! All these great ideas.. and this one is going to be on my 1 1/2 yr old's lunch tray tomorrow.

She loves spinach and broccoli so this sounds ideal!

Thank you!

Can't wait to make these. My daughter loves the veggie patch spinach nuggets, but we really do not like to buy packaged foods so I figured I would make some for the freezer.

My son is particular about veggies but he loves these. My husband who doesn't like spinach, also loved them.
