A wise Bitch (okay, it was our Mother) once told us to never arrive at a party empty handed. We think it’s valuable advice that applies to every holiday party, dinner party, overnight stay, or get together you might be attending- even if it’s a family gathering. While you could easily get away with bringing a bottle of wine or a loaf of bread, why take the easy way out? We have a recipe for spinach-artichoke dip that will score you major brownie points with whoever it is you’re trying to impress.
1 pint creamed spinach
1 12oz jar artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbs lemon juice
- Heat oven to 400 F.
- Combine spinach, artichokes, cheese and lemon juice in a medium sized bowl.
- Scrape the mixture into an oven-safe baking dish.
- Bake until lightly golden, approx 15 minutes.
- Serve dip with chips.
NOTE: If the dish has to travel, put it in Tupperware and heat it in the microwave for approx 2-3 minutes upon arrival. Serve immediately.
