Creamy Cheesy Spinach Dip

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars
3

"This recipe doesn't contain mayo or sour cream like most, so it's very cheesy and very delicious. I'm asked for the recipe every time I make it. For those who don't want a strong cheese like Cheddar, you can replace it with anything you like or even leave it out altogether. I like adding the Cheddar because it adds color and a little more flavor."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 1 1/2-quart shallow baking dish with 1 teaspoon olive oil.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until lightly browned, 4 to 7 minutes. Add spinach and simmer until spinach is hot, about 5 minutes. Drain any liquid from the mixture and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Pour milk into pot and return pot to medium heat. Melt cream cheese into the milk; cook and stir together about 3 minutes. Return spinach mixture to pot with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and Cheddar cheese; stir to combine. Season the mixture with Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until bubbly and golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes.

I loved this. I rarely make spinach dip because it has so much mayo, but this is a better alternative, and very, very tasty. I halved it, used mozarella and another cheese I had in the fridge,...

This recipe was great!! I halved the ingredients and left out the onion due to personal preference. but it was quick and fantastic. I also used a bit of parm cheese as well.

Really, a very good dip. This is one of those recipes I would say you could mess with the proportions to your hearts content and it would still taste really good. And if you wanted to toss in a ...

It was good but the spinach flavor was a little strong. May try again but want some more cheese. It came together very quickly and I surprised my husband with the dip, tortilla chips and beer wh...

This was absolutely delicious. It was a huge hit over the 4th and was gone in record time! Definitely worth doing again. I used fresh Spinach instead of frozen. If you do this, add some wate...

I made this for a baby shower and everyone loved it! Using cream cheese instead of mayonnaise adds a richer and creamier flavor!

I just made the spinach cheese dip for the first time for our daughter to take to her office. I am going to put it in the refrigerator when it cools off. She is taking it to work tomorrow. Ho...

It needs a lot seasoning to help it along and it just wasn't super creamy inside. I would more than likely use this recipe to make spinach cakes or just as a straight up side dish over a dip. Al...
