Spinach Dip Bread Bowls

I actually really like spinach. It’s leafy and green and healthy-all the things I don’t generally like about food. But spinach tastes good, unlike so many other green veggies (Asparagus can you hear me? I’m talking to you!!). I like salads with fresh baby spinach and I like sauteed spinach with garlic and while I’ve never had creamed spinach, it sounds lovely. However, spinach dip is where it’s at.

I think spinach dip is one of the most addicting appetizers/dips. I love breaking off a piece of Hawaiian bread and dunking it in. Then I go for seconds and thirds and fourths. Then I lick my fingers clean. When I saw this recipe for spinach dip bread bowls I knew I had to try it because the only thing that can make spinach dip better is the addition of mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.

Kara and I made these bread bowls as part of the Mother’s Day meal we prepared. They were really simple; we cooked them that morning and rewarmed them in the oven right before dinner. They were great. My mom loved them!

Here's what you'll need. I did forget to picture the pepper.

Start by cutting your bread loaf into 1-inch thick slices. You should get 10 total

Now press them into 3-inch round circles

Push the rounds evenly into the bottom and sides of muffin pan


Now it's time to wilt your spinach. Heat oil in a skillet and toss in the spinach

Mince the garlic

And add that in.

Time to combine everything

This looks well mixed to me. Wow it look so good!

Scoop mixture into bread bowls

Sprinkle with the grated mozzarella

These are warm and bubbly and waiting for me to eat!

Love. These.
