I was looking through my recipe file yesterday, searching for something good to share today. I came across this one - not only am I posting it, but I'm adding the ingredients to my grocery list so that I can make it ASAP. I think it's been three or four years since I made this, but just looking at the recipe was enough to make me crave it.
So here it is, in all its yummy, cholesterol-laden goodness! (Hey, there's spinach in it - can it count as a serving of vegetables?? I thought not.)
Spinach Artichoke Dip
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
1 14-ounce can of artichoke heart quarters, drained & chopped
1 small container of garlic & herb cream cheese
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
6 slices cooked bacon (I use the whole package - why skimp on bacon?)
Squeeze excess water out of spinach by mashing between paper towels. Stir together spinach, artichoke, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Spread in a lightly-greased 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until bubbly. Top with bacon, and bake an additional 5 minutes. Serve with crackers or thin slices of crusty bread.
