How to make creamy spinach dip

Step 1: Add the minced garlic, frozen spinach, cream cheese, sour cream, grated parmesan cheese, and minced onion to a sauce pan.

Stir the ingredients together and cook the dip over medium heat for around 5-7 minutes, stirring often, until the spinach thaws and the cheese is melted and creamy.

Step 2: Grease a small baking dish with olive oil cooking spray. Spread the spinach dip evenly into the baking dish and top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.

Step 3: Bake the creamy spinach dip at 425 degrees for around 10 minutes, until melted and bubbly. Broil 1-2 minutes at the end to get the cheese browned on top.

This step is optional, but I really love those delicious browned yummy bits of cheese, they are my favorite!

It also makes for a more visually appealing appetizer in my opinion. Just watch it closely while broiling to make sure that it doesn’t burn. It will brown quickly!

What do you eat with creamy spinach dip?

This dip is great for just about anything!

Our favorite dippers are crunchy tortilla chips or toasted baguette slices, but you could also serve it with pretzels, any kind of crackers, cut up veggie sticks, pita chips, or any kind of toasted bread.

A sliced french bread loaf would be a great size to crisp up and serve as dippers!
