Baked Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Baked Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls anyone?  These are cute aren’t they.  I thought it would be fun to share some fun Superbowl/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 🙂

Stay tuned for some great NYC pictures coming this week, I had so much fun in the big apple last week.  Looking forward to sharing the mouthwatering photos of our bakery hopping!

Here are your ingredients, nice and simple.

I LOVE that Pillsbury put out a “Simply” line of products.  No artificial flavors or preservatives.  Thank you!

Unroll your french bread loaf and cut into 10 equal slices, about 1 inch thick.

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

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

Time to cook the spinach, watch it wilt in seconds 🙂

Now add your garlic and stir it all up for a good minute or so.

Place your cream cheese, sour cream, spinach and parmesan cheese into a mixing bowl.  Mix mix mix.

Here’s the yummy part.  Add a pinch or two of McCormick Gourmet’s Ancho Chile Pepper.  Love this!

Don’t forget the garlic salt.

Give another good mix and….

Scoop dip into your bread bowls.

Sprinkle with cheese, bake for 15 minutes and….see photo below 🙂

Wait until you dig into these 🙂  Enjoy!


Baked Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls

13.3 oz roll of refrigerated french bread loaf, I used Simply 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 McCormick Gourmet Ancho Chile Pepper
1/8 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Garlic Salt
1/8 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Sicilian Sea 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, Parmesan Cheese, Ancho Chili Powder, 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.

    I made this recipe as an appetizer for thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it! The only suggestion I have is to cut the dough into smaller pieces. I would have preferred a larger dip to bread bowl ratio. All in all, this is quick, easy and delicious!

    I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hi! Looks delicious!

    Quick question: I’m thinking about making these for a lunch pot luck. Can they be served at room temp or would you recommend heating them up?

    I have been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this website. Studying this information So i am happy to show that I have a very excellent uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed.

    I’m making these tomorrow for NYE!

    Linda says:

    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!

    Susan says:

    Just made these for a party last night and they were a HUGE hit! Thanks for sharing. I couldn’t find the “Simply” kind of french bread, so had to settle for the regular. But still great! This will be a repeater for sure!

    Could I make these the night before and keep them in the fridge until I cook them as an appetizer the next day? Also, thoughts on using a mini muffin pan?

    Ellen says:

    Can these be baked, frozen, and then reheated in the oven at all?

    Jen says:

    Thinking of making these for an Easter appetizer for this weekend, but I have a question – would it be possible (or has anyone already done this?) to make them ahead of time & then warm them up?? And if so, should I just heat them in the microwave for a few seconds? Any thoughts/suggestions would be helpful!! Thanks 🙂
