Once it’s done baking, pair the dip with sliced French bread or your favourite crackers. It would also taste great with veggies but… Bread is so much tastier.

How to Make Hot Spinach Dip

I love this recipe because it’s really easy. All you have to do is throw everything together in a mixing bowl and then bake it in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Really, the only planning ahead required (besides making sure you have the ingredients on hand) is thawing the spinach and softening the cream cheese.

Can You Thaw Spinach in the Microwave?

Although I don’t officially recommend it, I do this myself all the time. Make sure you take it out of the packaging and place the spinach in a microwave safe container.

Then use your microwave’s defrost setting to slowly thaw out the spinach. Make sure to check it often because it does get hot spots!

How Can You Soften cream Cheese Faster?

This is another one that I will sometimes put in the microwave in a pinch. Again, be careful because the cream cheese can get hot spots and melt in certain places.

To soften, I put it in the microwave in 30 second increments just like when I melt butter.

Ingredients for This Baked Hot Spinach Dip Recipe

  • 10oz Frozen Spinach (Thawed)
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 8oz of Cream Cheese (Softened)
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper
  • 2 Cups Grated Cheese (Parmesan, Mozzarella, Cheddar, etc)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Parsley
  • 1 Clove of Garlic

You’ll also need some kind of baking dish for this recipe. I like to use a brie baker, but any similarly sized dish will work. A lid isn’t required.

Notes

I personally like the cheese mixed in so I didn't top my dip with cheese. Speaking of cheese, I like a combination of mozzarella and parmesan but you can really use anything that you like/have around the house.
