This was good but very finicky!! It took forever to stuff all those little balls. I don't recommend using garlic salt because it turned out VERY salty. I added fresh minced garlic to the spinach mixture because I could only find regular crescents. I had to bake it about 15 minutes longer than called for because it was doughy inside. I don't think the balls need to be dipped in butter. That just seems like an excessive, unnecessary step (not to mention the extra fat it adds). Maybe just brush the pan with butter or spray it.

A big hit at the Super Bowl party. I added 1 tsp minced garlic and 1 tst chopped water chestnuts to the ingredients instead of using the garlic crescents or garlic salt. I made the filling ahead and did the filling and the baking at the party so it was nice and hot.

Every one at my super bowl party thought this was really good, but there were a couple of comments that it was too salty. Also, I only cooked it for 35 minutes and I think it definitely could have used more baking time. Won't be using garlic salt next time, but will probably make it again.

I made it yesterday for Super Bowl Day. This was a fun recipe to make. It baked up just like the picture and everyone that tasted it, love it! I will be making it again. I did let it bake a little longer about 10 minutes more to make sure it was done inside. My sister-in-law who is a very GOOD cook loved it, so if she liked it, that is an A+ on my part!

LOVED it!!! I made this for a Superbowl party yesterday and it was loved by everyone! I forgot to get marinara sauce so I served it with no dip and we all thought it was good by itself.
Worth every minute of the prep time involved!

Served with warm marinara sauce - it tasted just like bite-sized spinach lasagna!! Love Love Love and can't wait to fix it again!

i think if i ever try this recipe again (because i do like the idea of it...and don't like to fail..heh-heh)...i will use the old "monkey bread" recipe.
that would be using Rhodes yeast rolls, where you make the night before (and i would just put the spinach/cheese filling between the frozen dough balls before the thaw/rise part....just like you would if making traditional sweet monkey bread).
I think it would have a more flakey result, as i made monkey bread for Christmas morning and it was Heavenly! <3 :)
This was for the Super Bowl and I was very disappointed :(

i'm sure it was something i did, but i'm a baker and usually don't have a problem. maybe i just didn't like the end result.
it was not flakey at all. it was very doughy in the middle, but the outside was nicely browned. after flipping, i even put it back in the oven on a foil-lined cookie sheet. finally, i pulled them all apart and put the doughy side up. it seriously took over an hour to bake. i just didn't not care for the end result....at all.
the spinach was thoroughly drained and i did not overfill my dough balls. :(
