This is my own variation on the classic spinach artichoke dip. I could eat this stuff with a spoon! Hubby hates spinach, but he gives it a thumbs up! Perfect for St. Patty's day.

How to Make T'S HOT SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP

Step-by-Step

  1. *NOTE: To roast garlic cut the top off of 1 bulb, place on a square of aluminum foil, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Tightly wrap garlic bulb in the foil; bake at 425 degrees F for 45 minutes or until garlic is very soft.
  2. Gather and prep all ingredients. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Use butter, or butter flavored cooking oil spray, to grease an 8"x8" baking dish.
  4. By hand or with hand mixer, in an average size mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and garlic until smooth and well blended; beat in mayonnaise, then beat in sour cream, salt and pepper until fairly smooth.
  5. (If using mixer, now is the time to clean off beaters and switch to a sturdy spoon.)
  6. Mixing well after each addition, add parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, spinach and artichokes.
  7. Spoon mixture into prepared dish and smooth it out. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella evenly over top.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1/2 hour, until cheese is melted and is brown and bubbly around the edges.
  9. Serve hot with assorted sturdy chips, crackers, veggies etc...
    Cover and refrigerate leftovers. May reheat.
