Spinach Bites

We have had a gentleman from Books and More that has brought books to our clinic for a number of years.  He always has a couple of recipe books in the tub full of books that he brings.  Over the past year or so, I have bought a 5 ingredient slow cooker cookbook, a Philadelphia Cream Cheese cookbook, and a Velveeta Cheese cookbook.  Spinach Bites is the recipe that caught my eye when I sat down and read the Velveeta cookbook.  I think it's an impressive little appetizer.  Let's see what ya'll think.

                                                              Spinach Bites

4 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
4 green onions, sliced
1 - 10 oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 Tbsp. flour
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 lb. (4 oz.) Velveeta Cheese Block, cut into 24 cubes

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix cream cheese and onions in medium bowl.  Add spinach, bacon, and flour; mix well.  Stir in eggs.

Spoon into 24 greased and floured miniature muffin pan cups.  Top each with 1 Velveeta cube; press gently into center of filling.

Bake 14 to 16 min. or until centers are set and tops are golden brown.  Makes 12 servings, 
2 appetizers each.
