I’m not the hugest fan of spinach unless it’s cooked up in a concoction like this. Yum. Need I say more? Spinach artichoke dip is simply delicious.
I recommend fresh spinach, even though it takes a little bit of cooking. Frozen spinach tends to be chopped up into inconsistent pieces, and that bugs me. If you get fresh, baby spinach, you won’t even have to chop it up at all. It’s already the perfect consistent size and doesn’t have big, yucky stems to get stuck in your teeth later.
Preheat the oven to 350 and grab an 8 X 8 pan.
In a saucepan, melt and then saute:
4 T. butter
1/2 onion, chopped
Add to the pan and saute until wilted:
8 oz. fresh spinach
Mix all together in the 8 X 8 casserole dish:
the cooked onion and spinach mix
4 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. sour cream
3/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 can artichoke hearts, chopped and drained
8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Bake the spinach artichoke dip at 350 for 30 minutes and stir it very well before serving. It is excellent with crackers, chips, or bread. I have even used it for the sauce on a pizza!
