This is my favorite baked Spinach Artichoke dip recipe!!

It’s easy to make and loaded with flavor!

Dips are always a crowd pleaser and a great choice to bring to any potluck or get together.

This spinach artichoke dip is creamy, cheesy, and super satisfying!

How do you make Spinach Artichoke Dip?

This dip starts with a delicious cream cheese base.

The first step to a perfectly scoopable spinach dip is to make the cream cheese nice and fluffy using either a hand mixer or a stand mixer.

You can certainly mix it by hand but an electric mixer will definitely make your dip softer so you don’t end up with a ‘chip-wreck’.

The addition of gruyere cheese really takes this to the next level.  If you don’t have gruyere you can substitute it with gouda or swiss.

Can you use fresh spinach for spinach dip?

Yes you can use fresh spinach in this recipe!

I use frozen chopped spinach to keep this spinach artichoke dip quick and easy. Frozen spinach tends to have a lot of liquid so once defrosted, you’ll want to squeeze our as much liquid as possible.  This will keep your dip from being runny.

If you’d prefer to make this spinach artichoke dip with fresh spinach, simply chop, cook and squeeze dry 1lb of fresh spinach.

Don’t forget to remove any tough stems before cooking.

What is good to eat with artichoke dip?

I like to serve this dip with toasted slices of baguette but it’s wonderful with crackers, chunks of sour dough bread or even tortilla chips! If you happen to have flour tortillas on hand, they make great dippers once baked in the oven!

Lightly brush them with olive oil (or melted butter) and season them with a pinch of salt and garlic powder.  Bake at 350°F 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp.

If you’re looking for a fresh crunch, carrots, celery, mini bell peppers or cucumbers are also great dippers!

Just know, if you take this dip with you, you’ll be left with nothing but an empty dish!

    I thought, “theres going to be alot of people, I’ll double it” . As I was mixing it together I realized, “Holy Crap” ..its making a ton, so I separated it for another party for the weekend.

    The Gruyere cheese was perfect. Thank you so much.

  11. How many does this serve…want to make for a large holiday gathering

  12. Sounds amazing!! Is the gruyere cheese shredded? I will be trying this for Thanksgiving :)

  13. I made this and my whole family devoured it. I was asked to bring it (a lot of it) this Sunday to my granddaughter’s baptism party. Question: Can I make it and keep it in a warming bag while in church and then they can reheat it?

  14. I love dips, especially for the coming alfresco dinners, so thanks for this new combo!

  22. I thawed out my spinach only to discover it was BROCCOLINI!!..So, I put it in the food processor and continued with the recipe. It turned out great!!… I did add some red pepper flakes, though.

  23. To squeeze spinach dry for recipes, I have found using my potato ricer squeezes it into a nice dry cake that pops right out. I also use this to squeeze the liquid out of cucumbers for my famous Tzatzki dip. CAn’t wait to try this recipe, so hungry for spinach!

  24. You have done it again!! This is so good. I added bacon and used sswiss cheese because I couldn’t find gruyere in my local supermarket. Thanks soo much for the recipe.
