Spinach Artichoke Dip

I’ve told you before how I prefer salty and savory foods over sweet and this Spinach Artichoke Dip is a perfect example of one of my favorite things.  First, it has spinach and artichokes (yes, yes) and second it mixes those with mayonnaise, sour cream, dijon , onion and cheese,  heats it all up so it melts all together and then I’m supposed to dip fresh bread into it and eat it (yes, yes, yes, yes and yes).  I’m in.

Give this recipe a try and tell me what you think of my favorite dip and leave me a comment.  You know I like to hear what you think:-)

Ingredients:

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup sour cream

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped

12 oz mozzarella cheese, grated

6 oz Parmesan, freshly grated

1 can artichoke hearts, drained and diced

10 oz bag of fresh spinach, coarsely chopped

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard and onion.  Add the cheeses, reserving about 1/8 of the cheese to cover the top, and mix.  Stir in the diced artichoke hearts.  Mix in the fresh spinach and stir well until the mixture is well combined and everything is evenly coated.

Spray a large casserole dish with non stick cooking spray.  Transfer the spinach and artichoke mixture in to it and cover with remaining cheese.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, then if desired cook for an additional 1-3 minutes on broil to brown the top of the cheese further.

Let sit approx 15-20 minutes before serving to set.
