Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Spinach dip seems to be a staple at parties – and everyone has their own spin. This is my favorite recipe for baked spinach dip. The cheese makes it extra creamy and gives it a nice flavor. And, there’s bacon.

We made this for Christmas Eve but I’m posting it now because it would be a great munchie for the football playoffs. It’s great served with crackers or bread chunks as dippers.

Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip
(from AllRecipes)

8 slices bacon
1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 (14 oz.) can quartered marinated artichoke hearts, drained
1 (5 oz.) container garlic-herb flavored cheese spread
1 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 (8 oz.) container sour cream
1/2 c. mayonnaise

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and crumble into a medium bowl.

Mix spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic-herb flavored cheese spread, Parmesan cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise into the bowl with bacon.

Scoop mixture into a 7×11 inch baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 20 minutes, or until bubbly and lightly browned.

  1. You always share the best recipes. I love spinach artichoke dip and need to try this one. Also the stuffed shells you shared sound devine and I haven’t made any in awhile. I admire you for planning to try a recipe from each of your cookbooks. I hope to do that someday. I have cooked from quiet a few of the ones I have but not all. Since I have close to 2500 it might take awhile.
