My husband tried something similar at a holiday party, and ever since then I've been looking for a recipe for spinach artichoke dip. This is a great one.
2 tbsp butter
3 large cloves of garlic
10 oz frozen chopped spinach
14 oz can of artichoke hearts
8 oz cream cheese
0.5 tsp Sriracha spicy sauce
0.125 tsp nutmeg
4 oz grated cheddar
3 oz freshly grated Parmesan
4 oz mozzarella
black pepper and salt to taste
Clean the scallions and cut the white and light green parts into thin circles.
Thaw and squeeze out all the liquid from the spinach. Drain the artichokes and chop them coarsely.
Finely mince the garlic. Allow the cream cheese to equilibrate to room temperature.
In a skillet saute the scallions. Add the garlic and immediately turn off the heat when the scallions are softened.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients, except the mozzarella.
Distribute into two glass loaf pans, or for a thicker layer bake in one 9-by-5 inch loaf pan. Spread the mozzarella on top.
Bake in a 400F preheated oven for about 25 minutes, then broil the top if it's not yet brown enough. Serve with pita chips. Yumm!
