Last night one of my dear friends came over. Last week when we were hanging out we decided that we both needed to cook more, so now whenever we hang out, we are planning on cooking. Last night we decided to make Alton Brown’s Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip.
This dip was really easy to make and was also so delicious! I think it was a little too “artichoke-y” but John thought it was perfect. We bought some pita bread and baked in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes so it would be crunchy. Recipe to follow.
Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Show: Good Eats
Episode: Dip Madness
1 cup thawed, chopped frozen spinach
11/2 cups thawed, chopped frozen artichoke hearts (I used a 12 oz jar)
6 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup grated Parmesan (I used between 1/2-3/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I omitted)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Boil spinach and artichokes in 1 cup of water until tender and drain. Discard liquid. Heat cream cheese in microwave for 1 minute or until hot and soft. Stir in rest of ingredients and serve hot.
