Hot Cheesy Spinach Dip Recipe – Yummy!

January 7, 2009

I have this thing where during holidays I love picking out some “party” type foods and recipes, going shopping and making my own assortment of yummies for Ryan and I. I’m not into the bar scene and we don’t really know anyone since moving out to Rochester (especially since I work from home), so we throw our own little two-person foodie parties on all the special days. This New Years I made some really delicious Spinach dip for us both. It was really yummy..so I thought I’d share 😀

I found the recipe online, originally trying to find a copycat recipe for the Bugaboo Creek Canadian Cheese Spinach dip I am obsessed with when we eat out. I’m not a big fan of artichokes so I dropped them from the recipe and added additional cheese instead. It’s baked in the oven and comes out warm and creamy…oh so tasty!

Hot Cheese Spinach Dip

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened (16 oz total)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzerella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 lb. bag frozen spinach, thawed and chopped up (I used my food processor to get it nice and tiny!)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a small baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, Romano cheese, Mozzerella cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and basil. Gently stir in spinach. (I used my stand mixer, it made it smooth a lot quicker than mixing by hand!)
  3. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 25 minutes, until bubbly and lightly browned.

That’s it! We dipped tortilla chips in it and it was sooo yummy..and there was enough to save some for the next day. It was just as yummy reheated in the microwave! While it didn’t taste like the Bugaboo Creek recipe I was trying to create it was still really delicious. When I make it again I may tweak it some more and add half cup cheddar and maybe some more Monterey Jack. I’ve seen some recipes adding butter..so I may add that too! I’ll let you know how that goes and if it’s good I’ll share 🙂
