Paired with soup or salad, these cheesy balls are a great dinner for the entire family. You can leave out the spinach for any picky eaters.

Yields 16 balls

Ingredients

Dough

  • 1 tablespoon Gefen Yeast

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 and 1/3 cups warm water

  • 2 tablespoons oil

Filling

  • 1 (packed) cup frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and drained

  • 2 cups shredded cheese

Butter Topping

  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon basil

Directions

1.

Prepare the dough: Place yeast, sugar, and water in a mixing bowl. Cover and proof 10 minutes.

2.

Add all remaining dough ingredients. Mix until a smooth dough forms; knead well.

3.

Let dough rise for 30 minutes.

4.

Prepare the filling: In a separate bowl, mix spinach and cheese together.

5.

Prepare the topping: Place butter, milk, and garlic in a small saucepan. Melt over low heat, stirring frequently. (You can also do this in a disposable pan in the oven heated to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.) Remove from heat; stir in seasonings.

6.

Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a circle. Place about 3 tablespoons filling in the center; pinch dough to enclose and form a ball.

7.

Dip each ball into the butter topping to coat. Arrange in a single layer in a 9×13-inch pan.

8.

Let rise for 30 minutes.

9.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

10.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until browned.

Tips:

You can use store-bought pizza dough instead of making your own — you’ll need two 20-ounce packages.
