Homemade Spinach and Artichoke Dip
This is one of those recipes where I fully feel that the pictures just do it no justice! They are a product of a dark, dreary day; however, this recipe and taste of this dip was just so good I had to share it!
My husband and I love Spinach and Artichoke dip, it’s one of our favorites at restaurants when we eat out; however, we rarely eat out! So, I just knew I had to make my own at home that we could enjoy, plus that gives me the luxury of knowing exactly what is in it.
Now, I’ve mentioned many times before that I can never get my son to eat veggies, this dip though? I could barely get him to stop eating it! I guess on the bright side at least he was getting a helping of spinach. He preferred it with chips, but my next attempt is to serve it with veggies only which is how I normally eat it. So, maybe that will get him to eat more veggies…I can only hope!
My husband was outside working when I made this and did not want to stop to come in and taste test it for me. Then, he finally gave in and came in, next thing I knew I was pushing him out the door because he was eating all my dip! He even said it tasted better than the restaurant dip, that’s a win in my book. So if he’s the only one that likes it I think I’ll be okay with that, but I know you will love it too!
For this recipe, I meshed together what would be a basic artichoke dip recipe and added my dill dip recipe to it! For those that have been around for a while, I’m sure you are thinking…”Surprise, Surprise.” I love that dill dip and if I can add it to any recipe, I will!
- 1 14oz Can of Artichokes, Drained
- 2 Cups of Frozen Whole Spinach (I freeze fresh spinach and use it. If you use chopped spinach you may only want to use 1 cup.)
- 3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
- 3/4 Cup Mayo (Note- Do not use Miracle Whip.)
- 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
- 6 oz Cream Cheese, Softened
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella
- 1 Clove Crushed Garlic
- 1 Tbsp Dill Weed
- 1 Tsp Dried Parsley
Preheat oven to 350*.
Combine the artichokes and spinach in a food processor and finely chop.
Pour the finely chopped artichokes and spinach into a large bowl and then mix in all the remaining ingredients. At this point, you can add more Mozzarella too if you want it extra cheesy.
Spray a 9 inch pie pan with non stick cooking spray, then evenly pour in the mixture.
Bake this for 20-30 minutes until it's browned on top and nice and bubbly.
Serve with veggies, chips, or bread.
Enjoy! This may be the perfect dip to bring to a holiday party!
