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.
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 etc..at 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.
