As you might have guessed, I'm sharing some of the recipes that were stashed on my kitchen counter over the holidays. I always wish I had more time to blog in December since there are so many great foods to write about - but this year I decided I'm sharing some of those favorite recipes in January.
A friend shared this spinach dip with us in the fall and it is my new favorite. I know, I know, it is green. And it has spinach boldly in the name. That is enough to scare most from even tasting it.
But I like this dip so much I can eat it straight out of the bowl with a spoon. Except that my children love it too so either I have to hide it or eat fast before it is licked clean. All that cheese masks any spinach flavor, but I can still pretend I'm eating my green vegetables.
And did I mention it is super simple? As long as I have the ingredients in my fridge I can mix it up in minutes.
8 oz spinach
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 T mayonnaise
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Steam spinach and drain. Place hot spinach with all other ingredients in food processor and mix well. Serve warm with crackers.
We accidentally ran out of crackers and found this makes a perfect sandwich spread too.
