20 - 24 oz. canned (NOT fresh or frozen)spinach, well drained(10.2)
3 eggs (3)
1/2 Cup LC bread crumbs(varies)
1/2 C. Parmesan cheese(1.5)
8 ounces ricotta cheese(7.5)
3 cloves finely chopped garlic(3)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients, except oil, well. Drop by the tablespoon into enough preheated olive oil to sauté/pan fry. Spinach "ball" is somewhat of a misnomer, as they need to be flattened somewhat with a fork into more of a patty shape to properly cook. Let cook over low to medium heat until brown and crisp on one side. Turn over and cook other side. Drain on paper towels. Makes about 2 dozen. Can be halved, using one extra large egg, or 2 medium ones.

About 1 carb per 'ball' depending on the 'breading' you use.

1/4 Cup fine LC breadcrumbs(varies)
1/4 C. Cheddar cheese, finely grated(0)

3/4 C. chopped scallions(2)
4 eggs(4)
3 T. jalapeño pepper, minced(2.5)
2 T. cream(1)
1 clove garlic, halves(1)
