fancy spinach and artichoke dip: day nine

Riley is serious about this dip!

once upon a time i lived off of kraft food recipes. they were always easy and cheap. and i was single and poor. ha! those days are long gone but there is one recipe that has always stuck with me.. this awesome cheesy spinach and artichoke dip. til this day, i still make it, and often get requests to make it. its not the healthiest of dips, but it sure does beat the store bought stuff. i decided to venture out and revamp this recipe to a "healthier" version. i hope you enjoy it! happy baking! -Jess

Fancy Spinach Artichoke dip
1 (14oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
2 cups fresh spinach, finely chopped
3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded 
3 cloves garlic, minced 
1/2 tsp. salt 

heat oven to 350F. combine all ingredients and mix until combined. spoon into 9 inch pie plate or similar dish. bake for 20-25 minutes until very lightly brown. serve with tortilla chips, crackers, veggies...whatever you fancy! *note: you could also assemble this ahead of time, cover with foil and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. when ready, uncover and bake for an extra 5-10 minutes. enjoy!  

oh and this is my picture of the day... isn't he cute? :) 


  1. I actually didn't know artichoke dip was so easy to make. This looks SO YUM. I would probably eat this every day, given the chance.

    1. ha! i probably would eat it everyday too, i try to save it for special occasions though, and that seems to keep my cravings for it under control
