Artichoke and Spinach Dip

January 11, 2012

I do not make too many dips or spreads unless I am having guests as I generally do not eat them.  I love them but if I make them for myself I eat ALL of it.  For spinach or artichoke lovers this one is great for a special dinner for family and/or friends or just a casual get together in the garden.

Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. Fresh Spinach
  • 1 oz. Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Jars (7 oz.) Artichoke Hearts (drained)
  • 1/2 C. Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 C. Sour Cream
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Garlic Clove (crushed)
  • 1 1/4 C. Parmesan Cheese (grated) (divided)

Preparation

  1. Saute the spinach in the butter for 2-3 minutes
  2. Add all the ingredients to a blender (except for 1/4 C. Parmesan Cheese)
  3. Blend until all ingredients are chopped and thoroughly blended
  4. Pour into oven proof bowls and top with the remaining cheese
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 25-30 minutes (cheese will be bubbling)
  6. Place on serving plates with crackers

(Yield: Approx. 3 Cups)
