Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Dip, It’s what’s for dinner if you want to try something out before you bring it to a party. Me and my husband sat down with some of this for dinner Friday night. I had volunteered to bring something savory to a friends party and knew I wanted to try my hand at a spinach and artichoke dip. I doubled the recipe below and it easily fed 10 people…who came back several times to load their tortilla chips.
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat your oven to 350 and grease a small baking dish. Mix together is a large bowl your cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parm, Romano, garlic, basil, onion powder, salt & pepper. Once these are blended well, fold in your artichokes and spinach. Pour mixture into the baking dish then top with your mozzarella.
And it goes a little something like this. . . .
And a little cheese action. .. . ..
After baking for 25 minutes at 350…and about 3 minutes after removal from the oven….
It was great!
