Toasty Spinach Dip
We had it first at one of the restaurant here, I don't remember the name of it. We instantly fell in love with this app. It was sinfully good! Affter having tried out a few recipes, this is the recipe we gave a two-thumbs up! So, today I am sharing with all my friends out there one of my family favorite appetizer recipe.
8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup (scant - not packed at all) freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon freshly grated romano cheese
1 tablespoon very finely chopped sweet red pepper
1 green onion, white and green finely chopped
1/2 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 cup grated medium cheddar
pinch of cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix first 4 ingredients with hand or stand mixer on medium until softened and well mixed.
Add next two ingredients and mix on med-low until just incorporated.
Add spinach and mix on low until just incorporated.
Transfer mixture to a small ovenproof dish and sprinkle cayenne on top to taste.
Top with cheddar.
Bake for 15 - 18 minutes or until bubbling around the edges.
Remove from oven and allow to set for 5 - 7 minutes before serving. Serve with fried or baked pita wedges.
