Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 16 oz frozen spinach, defrosted and squeezed tightly to get rid of excess water
  • 1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz fresh Mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • minced fresh parsley, for garnish

Instructions

SPINACH DIP

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 2 quart baking dish or cast iron skillet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Add cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, minced garlic, garlic powder and paprika to a large mixing bowl and stir until combined well.
  • Add spinach (make sure you've really pressed it to get all the excess water out!), cooked bacon, Parmesan cheese and 1 cup of the shredded Mozzarella cheese.  Stir until mixed thoroughly.
  • Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish/skillet.  Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese, then place thinly sliced fresh Mozzarella cheese on top of the dip.  Drizzle lightly with olive oil.
  • Bake until cheese is golden and mixture is bubbly, about 30 minutes.  If your dip is very full in the baking dish, place dish on a baking sheet in case it bubbles over.
  • Sprinkle dip with minced fresh parsley.

DIPPERS

  • Line sliced baguette pieces on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil.  Broil on HIGH for several minutes per side, until golden brown and toasted.  Be careful, bread can burn VERY quickly this way.
  • Serve dip hot, with toasted baguette pieces alongside.
