Spinach Artichoke Dip


I love spinach artichoke dip, if I go to a restaurant and they have, I have to order it. It calls to me. I have it eaten as a meal. I almost always burn my tongue because I have no patience. As I mentioned before my mom has no interest in cooking, and cant understand for the life of her why I love it so much. She laughed when I told her my aspirations were to be a housewife. She never learned to cook, and I guess the whole process just seems like so much work. As she was tasting this tonight she said, "This is so good, now tell me, what exactly is an artichoke." All she received from me was a blank stare, and I continued cooking our dinner. So I guess she will keep pondering what this mysterious artichoke is. On with the recipe! I searched for a long time for a good spinach and artichoke dip I could make myself, when I tasted my boyfriend's Aunt Patsy's dip I couldn't stop eating, I definitely ate more dip than turkey that Christmas.


Melt butter and saute garlic and onion




add the spinach and cook for 3 minutes




Grate your Parmesan--please ignore juice box
and cell phone clearly ruining my picture



Now usually I add the small artichokes and there are 8 - 10.
I bought that can and all i see are 6 and they are huge?!
You can chop them before adding to the pot,
but I just break them up with my spoon and incorporate into the mixture

 

Add cream cheese, mayo, parm, and 4 cheese blend




pour into greased casserole dish or hollowed out bread bowl,
I would've done the latter, but I was very pressed for time.

Then bake for 20 minutes, after that sometimes I serve it
and sometimes I top it with mozzarella and stick it back in the over for 10 minutes.
I serve it with New York Style Brand Garlic panini toast,
I also saw bruschetto toast around the deli section,
I'm sure it would be good with tortilla chips as well.

Tip: You can make this a day ahead unbaked.


Make this asap. It's fabulous.
