Aunt Meanie's Spinach Balls

My dad's sister, Harmena--or "Aunt Meanie" to me and my brothers--often made these spinach balls for us when we were kids.  She shared the recipe with mom, and so each time we enjoy them now, they remind me of being a kid, when Aunt Meanie would make them.  Simple to make and very handy to have in the freezer!  They can be used as appetizers or a main dish.

20 oz. spinach, chopped, frozen
2 small onions, finely diced
2 cups seasoned stuffing crumbs
1 teaspoon thyme
1 pound bulk sausage
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Thaw & drain spinach.  Mix all ingredients together and chill for a couple of hours.  Shape into walnut-sized balls.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
