A messy adventure in learning to cook

Foolproof Spinach Dip

Editor’s note: This recipe is brought to you by Chef Aud, my sister and aspiring home cook. I love the addition of horseradish to this dish!

The final product. Bon app!

So, the AFC championship games are on tonight… or whatever they’re called. Not terribly invested in any of the teams, but tonight afforded me the opportunity to prepare game day nosh. I’ve made variations of spinach dip through the years. Rarely can you mess this one up. When enough cheese is added, it becomes foolproof. Here’s my take on the goods.

10 oz. frozen spinach, drained

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
I cup light sour cream
small onion, chopped
parmesan  cheese
1-2 tbs. horseradish (depends on how much kick you want)
1 can of artichokes, chopped
3 tbs. butter, softened
pinch of salt, pepper
1 tsp. minced garlic

Preheat oven to 350. Thaw the spinach. I microwaved it. Remove all of the excess water. There will be a lot of water. You’ll be surprised how much water escapes. Drain all of it.

Meanwhile, sauté  the onions until browned. Combine the onions with the drained, chopped artichokes. Add the mixture and garlic to the spinach. Slowly fold in the cream cheese and butter. Add the horseradish, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Spread the mixture in a pie dish and top with parmesan cheese. Bake for 10 minutes.

Serve with toasted whole wheat bread or chips. Enjoy the game!
