We’re getting so close to Easter – which means the meatless meal series is close to wrapping up for the year! It always surprises me how fast it goes – Easter always seems so far away when I start planning these posts out!
Of all the meals I’m posting for this year’s series, this one is the guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
Spinach dip is often a fan favorite, but this baked version – with bacon! – takes it to a whole new level.
This hot dip has been a family go-to for years. The combo of warm cheese, bacon, spinach, and artichoke is hard to beat – and this couldn’t get easier. The dip can be mixed up a few days in advance and then just baked when you want it. It’s such a great go-to for entertaining.
Serve this with crackers or bread for dipping!
