So first up, my Baked Goat Cheese & Bacon Spinach Dip.
Can we just talk a bit about this dip for a minute? About how tangy and creamy and bacon-y it is? How this hot spinach & artichoke dip just might be my most favourite dip of all time (next to pizza dip of course)! How you need to have it on your holiday appetizer list?
My mouth is watering at the very thought of it.
A simple, and delicious appetizer. With a little more pizzaz than a typical appetizer. This is a must have appie on your table this year!
Baked Goat Cheese & Bacon Spinach Dip
- 1 - 225 g package of fresh spinach
- 1 onion diced
- 1 - 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 - 140 g package of goat cheese
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
- 8 slices of cooked bacon crumbled
- salt & pepper to taste
- crackers for serving
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
First chop the fresh spinach, dice the onion, and mince the garlic.
Then in a skillet, saute the spinach, onion and garlic in a little bit of olive oil, or use about 2 tsp of the bacon grease from your cooked bacon. Salt & pepper to taste.
Remove from the heat.
Stir in the goat cheese, sour cream, chopped artichoke and bacon.
Add the mixture to an oven proof dish and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the mixture is bubbling.
Serve with baguette slices or crackers.
