    Spinach and Artichoke Dip




    Happy Sunday! I have been meaning to post since Thursday, but somehow the time just slips by without me even noticing. I swear I blinked and 4 days came and went. And now, here it is, Sunday. My hubby woke up with the flu early this morning, so there will not be much cooking or baking here for a couple of days. Just lots of chicken noodle soup and saltine crackers. I did manage to make this delicious dip yesterday. This is my absolute favorite dip in the world. It is so addicting, I could eat the whole bowl. It's filled with artichoke hearts, spinach, onions and lots of yummy cheese. Seriously, what could be better? I here a bell ringing, so I better go take care of the poor little bunny. Watch that video that I linked, you will laugh off your chair! Have a great week!

    Spinach and Artichoke Dip


    1/4 cup chopped onions

    2 tablespoons butter
    1 10 ounce box of frozen chopped spinach
    1 8 ounce jar artichoke hearts, chopped
    4 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
    1/4 teaspoons salt
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


    1. In a small skillet, cook onions in butter until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Set aside.
    2. Cook spinach in the microwave, covered for about 5 minutes. Place in a cloth and squeeze out excess liquid. Place in a medium bowl. Add onions, artichoke hearts, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
    3. Place in a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Serve with crackers.

    This was a staple at a yearly party I used to go to. I'd ring the doorbell and the hostess would say, "It's over there, on the table" or "It's just coming out of the oven, relax".

    Addictive is what it is.

    I made this for cocktails at Thanksgiving. It was a big hit. I recommend making it for Christmas, takes 10 minutes to prep.

    My suggestion: When it's all mixed in the mixing bowl, add a few drops of water to the mixture until it's a really creamy and moist consistency. I could tell the mixture without water was a little too dry.

    Also, put the mixture in a deep baking dish, not a large shallow dish. Something that is about 3" high. The smaller the dish, the moister it will become.

    I also used fresh grated parmesan on top for the last 10 minutes. A buttery cracker is a must.

    I always use fresh Parmesan -- most of the canned stuff tastes soapy to me and not very fresh.

    I doubled up on the spinach in this recipe, and my kids still ate it up. It is so good!
