How to Make Spinach Dip
This dip is easy to make and has so much great flavor! Here are a few tips to make sure you have spinach dip perfection!
- Use a hand mixer to combine the cream cheese, this makes it softer and easier to scoop.
- Squeeze all of the water you can out of the spinach.
- Change the cheeses to your favorites, a bit of gruyere or cheddar are great in this recipe.
- Low fat or light products can be used in this recipe.
- Make up to 48 hours in advance and refrigerate. May need a bit of extra cook time if it’s chilled.
Make Ahead Spinach Cheese Dip
Not only is it perfect for any gathering, this spinach dip recipe can actually be prepared a day in advance and put it in the oven just before serving!
Either take it out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking or add a few minutes extra bake time.
