    Not healthy! I understand the cholestrol review comment. Not that easy to mix or shape into balls. Way, way too greasy/buttery.

    I pretty much follow the recipe as is. Its really very good, and a super way to get fussy eaters to eat spinach!

    Use the dry seasoning without the broth flavor packet. Most of those packets are the reason MSG is listed. I use Pepperidge Farm bags.
