Ingredients:

For the Spinach Dip:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup chopped fresh spinach, cooked and drained

For the Bread Bowls:

  • 6 small round bread loaves (such as dinner rolls)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Hollow Out Bread Bowls:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Cut a small circular opening on the top of each bread loaf and hollow them out, creating bowls. Reserve the bread removed for dipping.
  2. Prepare Spinach Dip Mixture:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix until smooth.
    • Gently fold in the cooked and drained chopped spinach.
  3. Fill Bread Bowls:
    • Spoon the spinach dip mixture into each hollowed-out bread bowl, ensuring an even distribution.
  4. Brush Bread Tops:
    • In a small bowl, mix melted butter and garlic powder. Brush the tops of the bread bowls with the butter mixture.
  5. Bake Until Golden:
    • Place the filled bread bowls on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and the dip is bubbly.
  6. Garnish and Serve:
    • If desired, sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the top for a burst of color.
    • Serve the Spinach Dip Bowls warm, accompanied by the reserved bread pieces for dipping.

Cook Notes:

  • Fresh vs. Frozen Spinach: While fresh spinach provides a vibrant flavor, frozen spinach works well too. Ensure it’s thoroughly thawed and drained before adding to the dip mixture.
  • Bread Selection: Opt for round bread loaves with a sturdy crust, as they hold the dip well without becoming too soft.
  • Creative Hollowing: Don’t discard the insides of the bread completely; you can tear them into bite-sized pieces for additional dipping.
  • Customizing Dip Consistency: Adjust the thickness of the dip by adding more or less sour cream according to your preference.

Variations:

Artichoke Marvel:

  • Add a can of drained and chopped artichoke hearts to the spinach dip mixture for a delightful Artichoke Spinach Dip.

Spicy Kick:

  • Incorporate a dash of hot sauce or a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes to the dip mixture for a spicy twist.

Bacon Bliss:

  • Enhance the flavor profile by mixing in crispy bacon bits or topping the dip with crumbled bacon.

Keto Version:

  • Replace the bread bowls with keto-friendly options such as almond flour crackers, cheese crisps, or vegetable sticks.
  • Use keto-approved mayonnaise and sour cream in the spinach dip.
  • Adjust the ratios of cream cheese and shredded cheese to meet keto requirements.
