Quick and Easy Spinach Dip Recipe

Creamed Spinach DipCreamed Spinach Dip

This spinach dip recipe is so easy that my son could prepare this in no time. I came up with the idea to prepare this dip recipe at home after my son repeatedly ordered it at restaurants. He liked it so much I thought why not make the dip at home.

I looked around and was able to scrounge up the recipe below which the family loves. The recipe calls for frozen chopped spinach, but you can chop up fresh spinach if you have it on hand.

I must point out you will have to make some slight adjustments yourself to the cooking instructions If you do decide to use fresh spinach. But don’t let this little fact discourage you, the adjustments would be simple enough to make on your own.

Are you wondering why I call this a party dip?  One night we had some guest over and we ran out of appetizers.  My son mentioned I should fix his favorite spinach recipe.  I did and the rest is history. The dip is now a party favorite that I fix all the time when the opportunity presents itself.

To serve you can spoon of dip out the spinach dip with tortilla chips or crackers which always seem to work best. An even better suggest would be to to serve the dish in a bread bowl like you see people doing so many times on TV or in the restaurants. I must admit, that the bread bowl option is always a great hit with friends and family.

Enough about the recipe, all that's left is for you to give the recipe a try out.
