    Prep tips on Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Dip!

    I try to use everything FRESH, this is why I chose to use fresh spinach instead of frozen.  Plus, you can control how wilted the spinach is when you cook it down yourself.  Frozen spinach is okay, but is very watered down when thawed, and can be hard to get all the liquid out.

    To get the liquid out of thawed frozen spinach, just grab a handful and squeeze with both hands until you can’t squeeze out anymore of the water.  This way your dip won’t turn out runny.  But why go to all that trouble when you can just use fresh?

    The Artichokes

    This is where I compromise my “Fresh” rule.  To obtain artichoke hearts that are fresh, you’d have to cook and peel about ten artichokes to get the amount you need for this recipe.  No.  Buy canned artichoke hearts!  They are just as good.  Drain the liquid, and then chop the hearts into small pieces, easy peasy!

    Cream Cheese

    Cream cheese is a food made in heaven!  But it is VERY difficult to work with when it’s cold.  Especially if you need to blend it with other ingredients.  The solution is simple, take your cream cheese out of the fridge in the morning and lay it on the counter.  It will be room temperature in a few hours.  If you don’t have that kind of time, place your brick of cream cheese on the stove while you’re cooking either on the stove top or in the oven.  The warmth from the burner or oven heats up to the top of the range and will bring your cream cheese to an optimal temperature pretty quickly.  OR, unwrap it, stick it in a bowl, and microwave at 15 second intervals until it can be easily mixed.

    The other Cheeses

    I use Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Pepper Jack!  You can use a combination of anything you want.  I would suggest sticking to the “white” cheeses though, for appearance sake!  Swiss would make an interesting flavor!

    Alfredo

    My recipe calls for a 14.5 ounce jar of Alfredo sauce.  You can use any flavor Alfredo you want, Roasted Garlic, Four Cheese, etc.  I’ve also made this recipe using my own home made Alfredo sauce.  Home made versions are typically very rich in flavor if made right, and makes this dip even more flavorful!

    Bread, Chips, or Crackers!

    Now, what to dip into this awesome Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Dip you’ve just made!  Personally, I opt for bread, French Bread, like a Baguette.  You can even get a round bread and cut out the middle for a bread bowl, fill it in with your dip (after it’s cooked of course), and use the part you cut out as the dippers.  Crackers work well too, I use Triscuits because they’re not flimsy, you should try the Smoked Gouda one that just came out!!  To me, chips are a last resort!  If you can find one that doesn’t break in half when you try to scoop your dip, then Yay You!

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 1 1/2 casserole dish with cooking spray. Drain your artichoke hearts and chop them into small pieces. Cook down your spinach by putting into a skillet with a couple tablespoons of water over medium heat, stirring constantly until just wilted. TIP: You can use a bag of frozen spinach, just make sure it's thawed and drained completely.

    2
    Done

    Put all of your ingredients into a large bowl and mix until well combined. If your cream cheese is too hard to mix, toss it in a bowl and microwave in 15 second intervals for desired consistency.

    3
    Done

    Pour your mixture into your prepared casserole dish, and bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes, uncovered.

    4
    Done

    Remove from the oven and let cool a bit before serving, about 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with french bread, chips, crackers, or whatever your heart desires! This can also be scooped into a bread bowl! Enjoy!
