Best Homemade Spinach Artichoke Dip!

At at least one party chances are you’ve tried the store-bought chilled spinach artichoke dip, the cold kind that’s jam packed with mayo. This version is served warm and melty and 100 times better!

Spinach artichoke dip is my favorite kind of savory dip. It has so much flavor, I love the flavor pairing of veggies, and who can resist all that cheese?

This is the ultimate party dip! I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t love it.

If you start eating this before dinner it may just quickly become my dinner because you can’t stop eating it!

I shared a stove-top version a few years ago but this baked version has become my go-to. You’ll love how there’s no tending to this method, just mix and bake.

To make the crostini – slice up baguette into 1/2-inch slices brush the rounds with olive oil, and bake in 400 degree oven on baking sheet just until the bread starts to get a nice golden brown.

Can I Use Fresh Spinach in This Recipe?

You can definitely use fresh spinach here in place of frozen. If doing so steam it and blanch in ice water, then squeeze excess liquid and chop.

    Almost didn’t bother after waiting 5 minutes for the page to load with so many ads and videos. At least add a link at the top of the page for the recipe if you intend on putting it so far down on the page.

    This recipe is delicious. We doubled the recipe since it doesn’t make to much. The only changes we did was use fresh spinach and only one 7oz jar of artichokes for the double batch along with Monterrey jack cheese instead of mozzarella. We also added a little salt. Would definitely make again.

    Thanks for this recipe. Something so simple, yet utterly scrumptious!
    Served last night for a party at home. It was a huge hit. This, as they say, is a keeper! 🙂

    I made the Artichoke and Spinach Dip. It is great the ravings from my guests was amazing. I had to chop my artichoke since I could not find the quarter ones. Just an extra 2 minutes of prep time.

      I am literally making this right now for a potluck tomorrow at my school (nursing college). Do you think I can put this in my slow cooker? Should I bake it first then put it in there to keep it warm?

      I got very little sleep thinking about this all night 😣

        You can just cook it on the low setting for a few hours in a small slow cooker or double or even triple with a standard slow cooker.

    Amazing! We have some milk sensitivity in our house, so we adjusted as follows: 1/2 cup of Vegenaise (vegan mayo) instead of mayo and sour cream, and we used vegan parmesan and vegan mozzarella cheese replacements. Still tasted better than anything we have ever had before!
