What to serve  with this

A Good Loaf of Crusty Bread: You can never go wrong with slices of baguette or rustic country loaf, perfect for scooping up generous amounts of the dip. Check out this Crostinis Recipe – Your Favorite Crackers: From whole grain to simple saltines, the delightful crunch of a cracker pairs wonderfully with the creamy richness of this dip. – Classic Tortilla Chips: Tried and true, tortilla chips are a staple companion to any dip, and they are no exception for this one. Their slight saltiness and crunch are a match made in heaven with our dip. – Fresh Vegetable Sticks: If you’re looking for a lighter, healthier option, go for crisp, fresh veggies like carrot, celery, bell pepper, or cucumber sticks. They provide a refreshing contrast to the dip. – Pita Chips: A little thicker than tortilla chips, pita chips hold up well to the dip. Plus, their slight tanginess can complement the flavors in the dip beautifully.

– Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). – Rinse the spinach thoroughly and remove any tough stems. Roughly chop and set aside. – In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant. – Add the chopped artichoke hearts to the skillet and continue to sauté for 2-3 minutes. Then add the spinach in batches, allowing each batch to wilt before adding the next. – Once all the spinach is wilted, remove the skillet from the heat and set aside

*Pro Tip

Fresh vs. Frozen Spinach: This recipe calls for fresh spinach, but if you’re in a pinch, frozen spinach can work too. Just make sure to thoroughly thaw and drain it to avoid adding extra moisture to your dip.

– In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in the Parmesan and Gruyère cheeses. Add the crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper, and mix until well combined. – Add it to the cheese mixture to the spinach and stir until well combined. – Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and sprinkle the top with the mozzarella cheese. – Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden and bubbly.

Serving Style: This dip is fantastic served hot from the oven, but if you’re hosting a party, consider keeping it warm in a small slow cooker or fondue pot so it stays melty and delicious throughout the event.
