One of my favourite appetizers when I eat out at a restaurant is spinach dip. There’s something so good about creamy melted cheese that melts my heart!!
I love it so much that I came up with this recipe at home that tastes just as good as the restaurants and the fam loved it! It’s great for game nights or a girls night in since it comes together fairly quickly. Serve it with some toasted naan bread and you’ll thank me later!
1 bunch spinach
2 chopped green onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup cream cheese (softened)
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 crushed garlic
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese for topping
Preheat oven to 375
Wash spinach and remove stems
In a skillet, heat olive oil and crushed garlic over medium high heat
Add spinach and cook for 4-5 minutes until wilted then move to a strainer.
Allow to cool slightly then squeeze to remove excess water, transfer to a bowl.
Add all the remaining ingredients to the bowl except for the cheddar (or mozzarella cheese).
Mix until combined then pour into a 6’ baking dish.
Top with shredded cheese
Bake for 10-12 minutes then switch the heat to broil and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Serve with toasted naan bread.
For the crispy naan bread, I brushed it with olive oil and baked for about 7-8 minutes until they were golden and crispy.
