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.

    Has anybody tried to make these in a mini muffin tin? If so, can you share any changes required for recipe, times etc. Thanks!

  2. Tricia

    These look great. Can you make any part of it up ahead of time then cook it before a party?

  3. Amanda

    Made these tonight for a going away wine party/picnic….YUM! The filling is delicious all on its own!

  4. Catherine

    I can’t eat gluten, but this mini bread bowl is great for so many fillers!!! I doing this for my brother and SIL baby shower!! Oh yes, I love it! Thank you.

  5. Eleyn

    These look so easy to make I might just have to run to the store to get the ingredients. Yum! 😀

  6. Amy

    I love your detailed pictures! It certainly helps those of us that are “challenged” in the kitchen. Thanks and I can’t wait to make these.

  7. Liz

    Making them tomorrow. They look awesome! I am a little confused by the end of the instructions where it says to let cool 3-5 minutes before removing them from oven?

  8. Jen

    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 🙂

  9. Cyndee

    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?

  10. Susan

    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!

  11. Rachel

    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!

  12. Peggy

    I made this yesterday for some friends of mine. It was so good! All my friends loved it and I shared the recipe with about 5 people. My daughter thinks this is the best thing she ever ate. Thanks so much for this recipe!

  13. Linda

    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….

  14. Marsha

    Hey there,

    These look great! One question, did you use mini muffin tins or the standard size.

    I’m making these tomorrow for NYE!

    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 most surely will make sure to do not overlook this site and provides it a look on a relentless basis.

  16. Lauren

    I made these tonight…they were SO good!! Mine weren’t quite as handsome but the bubbling over dip and cheese made it even more delicious! YUM!

  17. Karmen Sadler Diaz

    As always this recipe wasn’t only a winner but a keeper! I always know I can count on you for simple ingredients and blow your mind taste :)!

  18. Anita

    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?


  19. doudoune moncler,polo moncler,moncler femme

    I like the valuable info you supply to your articles. I will bookmark your weblog and test once more right here regularly. I’m fairly sure I will learn a lot of new stuff right right here! Good luck for the next!

  20. Debbie Moffat

    Loving this recipe for the spinach breadbowls..any chance they could be frozen before baking?
    Thanks for you response1

  21. Costco Coupons

    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.

  22. Cydney

    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!

  23. Tara

    These look amazing! Did you use a mini muffin tin( I am assuming you did) or a regular. It’s hard to tell. Thanks for sharing!

  24. Stephanie

    Do you serve these warm, or can they be served cold too? Thanks for sharing the recipe. You do a great job of explaining the steps.
