Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls

Sharing my Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls today! The best Superbowl food for your family and friends! Bite size and delicious!Spinach Dip

Does it get any better than spinach dip? In little bread bowls? Nope. Superbowl food is some of my favorite foods to prepare. These are cute aren’t they. I thought it would be fun to share some fun party food this week to get ready for game day.

It’s no secret that I am only interested in the commercials and half time performances of Superbowl but I do LOVE to make party food, so let’s celebrate with fun food 🙂

How To Prepare Spinach Dip Bread Bowls

Spinach Dip

Here are your ingredients, nice and simple. Use any refrigerated French bread loaf you’d like.

Can I Use Other Bread Options?

You sure can! Pizza dough, biscuit dough and crescent dough will work for this recipe.

Spinach Dip

I used the Pillsbury French loaf for this recipe. Simple to use.

Spinach Dip

Unroll your french bread loaf and cut into 10 equal slices, about 1 inch thick. If you are using a different type of dough, divide it into 10 equal pieces similar in size that will fit in a muffin tin.

What Kind of Muffin Tin Should I Use?

Spinach Dip

I prefer my non-stick traditional size muffin tin for this recipe. The bread bowls come right out after slightly cooled. Check your local Target or Walmart in the baking pan section. Amazon also has a big selection. If you are not using a non-stick muffin tin, lightly spray with cooking spray.

Flatten each slice of bread dough with the palms of your hands about a 3 inch round.

Spinach Dip

Press in the bottom and up the sides of your muffin tin.

  • 13.3 oz roll of refrigerated french bread loaf I used Pillsbury
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Cups baby spinach coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove fresh garlic minced
  • 3 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 Cup light sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon Garlic Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray 10 regular muffin cups with non stick cooking spray.  Unroll package of french bread loaf and slice into 10 equal size slices, about 1 inch thick.  Press each slice into about a 3 inch round, I did this by pressing in between my hands.  Press into the bottom and up sides of the muffin cup.  Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat.  Cook and stir spinach until wilted, about 3 minutes then add garlic, cook and stir for another minute then turn heat off.
  3. Place cream cheese, sour cream, cooked spinach and garlic, smoked paprika, garlic salt, salt and pepper into a medium bowl.  Mix until well combined.  With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dip into each of the centers of bread bowls.  Top evenly with shredded cheese and bake for 15-17 minutes until just turning brown on edges.  Remove and let cool for 3-5 minutes before removing from oven.

    Love spinach!

    And I wish I could buy a big jar of shredded parmesan like that….

      Kirkland is Costco’s brand.

        Janice says:

        Good Morning, I shop at Costco all the time. Our Costco has Parmesan in plastic bags. Perhaps it is coming soon or possibly you live in the States and I need to take a drive across the border. I hacvce never seen Simply by Pilsbury either. Please tell me whether you live in the States? Thanks!

      likeit1 says:

      You should go to a good deli and buy a wedge of Parmesan reggiano and get them to shred it. Better and tastier than Jar Bought and cheaper.

      Store in the fridge or freezer

  2. 2

    The recipe looks lovely! And this “I LOVE that Pillsbury put out a “Simply” line of products. No artificial flavors or preservatives. “–I had no idea and thanks for sharing!

    Such a cute vehicle for spinach dip. Love it!

  4. 4

    These really are so cute!!! I feel like there are so many possibilities with the idea of the mini bread bowls.

    Kelley says:

    I want to try these for sure. These are not in an actual mini muffin tin are they, just regular? But I’m guessing you could adapt them easily enough, just might give it a shot. Thanks!!

    What a fantastic idea for a party! Totally cute and no risk of double dipping. Genius.

    Linda says:

    I recognize the shredded parmesan from Costco – love it! We also like to buy Romano at Costco, but here in Virginia they sell it by the wedge, so we shred it with our KitchenAid mixer attachment. I just LOVE Costco! These Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls look yummy – Costco sells a delicious spinach dip (I have never made my own spinach dip)… I have some in my fridge that I have to use up, so maybe I will cheat and use it in the biscuits!

  17. 17

    Jenny, these look wonderful. The step-by-step photos are beautiful & very helpful! xo

  18. 18

    yum and more yum. This is a perfect superbowl recipe. I’ll be sneaking veggies in so the boys don’t see them.

    These were great! I made them in mini-muffin tins, and just divided the dough into 24 sections. I found they took a little longer to cook at my house (like 18-20 min). Definately serve warm – they’re not as good when they cool (still good, but better warm). Also, I subbed lower fat cream cheese, sour cream and part skim mozzarella and they came out to be 1 “points plus” point each for Weight Watchers. YUM! Thank you!!

    […] Last weekend, Bob’s bosses and co-workers came over for dinner, and I had to get into top notch hostess mode. We served slow roasted pork belly, sous vide duck breast, grilled brussel sprouts, homemade cheesy tater tots, and my favorite frozen key lime pie. However, I was at a loss for finger foods. After a call out on Twitter, a ton of great suggestions came to my rescue, and I decided to make these Mini Spinach Dip Bread Bowls by Picky Palate. […]

        Cayenne worked fine, though I was a little heavy handed with it. We like things spicy, but my “little extra” was a little too much! They were delicious and gave me a slew of great ideas to use the french bread dough for though. I’m thinking mini pizzas and tuna melts. I’m not sure which to try first!

    Do you think these could be made a head of time and freezed — and then warmed up before serving? They look yummy! Also, since I live in Europe I can’t get this frozen bread dough — wondering if I could try with croissant dough (the kind that Pillsbury makes in a can from the fridge section). Hmmm….

    I made these today and they were amazing. A couple of notes: I am not sure if the two cups of spinach is before or after cooking (I assume before), but I used about four fresh cups. It was too creamy for my taste with only two cups. I also added a bit more Parmesan, omitted the salt and garlic salt (too much salt/sodium!) and subbed cayenne for ancho powder, as I couldn’t find it in the store. Yum! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

    2 question: 1) can I use the pillsbury biscuits in place of the French bread and 2) what are your thoughts about making them ahead and freezing them to bake later?

    Emily says:

    I made these tonight and they were absolutely delicious!! I used a different brand of bread, but they still came out great. The store I went to didn’t have any ancho chile powder so I substituted regular chili powder and it was fine, but I would like to try again sometime when I do have the ancho chile powder.

    I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone, as a plus it is super easy!

    Carrie says:

    I made the recipe exactly as directed. These were delightful. My sister, her boyfriend and I had the entire batch destroyed before they even cooled off. Their aroma had been taunting us from the oven for 15 minutes and we just couldn’t wait. Well worth the burned roof of my mouth.

    These are so delicious! I’ve made them several times for book clubs and potlucks. The last time I made them I put them in mini muffin tins instead of the regular sized ones. They seemed a little easier to eat but just as yummy.

    Sara says:

    These are so cute and delicious – I make them for every occasion I go to! The addition of the ancho chili powder is really the secret ingredient, in my opinion. Any idea how you would alter the amount of dough or amount that the recipe makes if you use a mini muffin tin instead of a regular one? Thanks, and thanks again for a terrific recipe!!

    I made these yesterday for my niece’s baby shower. They were the first things to go. So delicious. I did make a few changes. Couldn’t find the simply brand, so I used the regular roll of pillsbury french bread. I cut the roll in 12 pieces instead of 10. I used 1/2 of an 8 ounce block of cream cheese and added extra spinach thinking I’d need it due to the two extra “bread bowls”. They turned out fantastic. Thank you so much for such a creative recipes.

  249. 249
    Mara says:

    I made these for my last law school class meeting and 8 of us ate two batches! They were a hit.
    I made one batch with squares of Pillsbury croissant dough (the can that comes in one flat sheet for other uses, not cut into triangles for croissants). The bread bowls looked a little classier with the corners of the dough squares folded over the cheese, and the flat dough didn’t try to creep back down into the muffin tin like the elastic french bread dough, but taste-wise we all preferred the french bread dough.

    Jill Brown says:

    Ok, just got them out of the oven. A few comments about this recipe/process: First, I used mini muffin tins. All I did was cut the dough just like the directions, then cut them in half. I was not having great luck (my skills are low) pressing the dough into the tins. They kept shrinking back to a small lump. I had to smooth each one out right before I added the spinach dip. Also, I used a bit too much dip in each cup. The dough rises some, so it pushes the dough up and almost out. This is a little time consuming. I am trying out recipes for an upcoming Baby Shower, and the mommy had a “craving” for them, so I thought I would try them before. I am not sure. Wasn’t sure if the “2 Cups” spinach was pre-cooked. It didn’t yield much, but after cooked. I was also confused at the end of the directions when it says “Remove and let cool for 3-5 minutes before removing from oven.” how do you remove, cool, then remove from oven? Just tasted finished product. Kinda doughy but spinach was excellent!!! I tried rolling the dough in flour and then with a rolling pin with some of them. It resulted in same taste, but dip didn’t rise up which is good, I will probably do that next time to all of them. Thanks for recipe. All in all tasty but a bit laborious.

  253. 253
    Jeanne says:

    These look wonderful. I am going to make them for a party tomorrow. I know these are the regular muffin tins, but do you see any reason why I should not use the mini muffin tins?

  254. 254

    I ‘pinned’ this recipe a while ago. I’m going to make these today for a dinner party. I can’t wait to try these!! (I’m going to try using mini muffins pans as one person mentioned above.)
