Elsie’s favorite, and maybe Wendy Sam’s as well. Served at the party in The Picker Who Perished, a Too Good to be Threw Consignment Shop Mystery. The original recipe came from Noel DeBrick, artist extraordinaire. These can, and should, be made ahead of time, then warmed/zapped as needed: (These are also known, more prosaically, as Spinach Balls, but only by the imagination-challenged)

2 pkgs (those frozen blocks) chopped spinach, cooked and drained
4 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup butter, melted
½ to 1 cup grated Parmesan (more is always better, says Wendy Sam)
a little garlic salt
½ t. thyme or poultry seasoning
2 cups packaged herb stuffing

Combine all, shape into small balls on a greased baking sheet, refrigerate at least one hour, then bake at 350º 20-25 minutes. Makes about 50 balls. Cook a little less if you plan to freeze then thaw and warm. These do well in the microwave as secret late-night nibbles.
