Simple Cheesy Baked Spinach Dip

 

Do you have a favorite restaurant that has the best spinach dip? We do right in the town I live in. One day I asked the waiter what they put in the dip? He gave me the main ingredients without amounts and I took it from there. My husband and son said I nailed it. This is so simple to throw together and so creamy and cheesy. I used low fat cheeses and it came out great.  Try it anytime and especially for a big game or when company comes to visit. Is sure will be a big hit!

 

Simple Cheesy Baked Spinach Dip

Servings 8 – 1/4 cup per serving

Ingredients: 

  • 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach or 2 cups thawed spinach
  • 1/4 cup mayo, I used light, not fat free
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, I used light, not fat free
  • 1/3 cup grated or shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 heaping cup mozzarella cheese, I used half cup fat free and 1/2 cup part skim or use all part skim cheese
  • pinch salt, optional
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder1/4 – 1/3 finely chopped green onions/scallions or 1/4 cup chopped chives

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside
  2. Squeeze out as much water from spinach. Set aside while you mix up all other ingredients.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients until well combined. Add spinach. Make sure you break up the spinach to incorporate into mixture.
  4. Place mixture in prepared baking dish. Bake for about 25 minutes.  You may see some bubbling on the corners of the dish and a little browning on top. If needed, put back in oven for another 5 or 10 minutes until all cheese is melted.
  5.  Take out and serve with your favorite cracker and chips.   ENJOY!
