By far my favorite way to prepare this classic dip is in a cast-iron skillet. Not only does the cheese melt perfectly but it is the perfect way to add fresh bread. And who doesn’t love to dip freshly baked bread into the perfect Spinach Artichoke Dip?

I have made this recipe quite a few times.  I mean, #da. Once you introduce a cheesy gooey fabulous recipe like this into your life, how can you not indulge in it as often as possible?

Tips, Tricks, Variations:

Can this spinach and artichoke dip recipe be made in a crockpot? Yes! Simply combine all ingredients except the bread in a large bowl and then transfer to your crockpot. Heat for 2-3 hours on low, stirring occasionally. The bread will still need to be made in the oven, but you can thaw the bread and then simply bake for 15 minutes at 350°F before you serve. We love popping this spinach and artichoke dip in the slow cooker before church and coming home to a delicious snack!

Want to recreate Applebee’s Spinach and Artichoke Dip? Add 2 cups of mozzarella to the ingredients! Add in when you add the other cheeses.

Fun variations: Try adding 1/3 cup of finely chopped onion. For an extra special kick, prepare a package (usually about 1 pound) of bacon until very crispy and crumble into small pieces. Stir half into the mixture and sprinkle the rest on top after the spinach artichoke dip is done baking. If you love heat, finely dice jalapeno and add to the mixture before baking.

Can you reheat Spinach Artichoke Dip? To reheat the dip, I recommend adding leftovers to a skillet and heating for about 15 minutes in the oven at 350°F. Cooking time will depend on how much you have leftover, so just keep an eye on it.

Can you double this recipe? You bet! Just make sure you have a big enough skillet. When I double it I often do NOT double the number of artichokes, but that is just a personal preference.

I think you are going to LOVE this homemade spinach and artichoke dip recipe with cheesy bread rolls! I know we do. <3

  • Danita says:

    Hi, I’m making this for a party tomorrow. I made the dip ahead and plan to bake tomorrow. I’m confused about steps 11 and 12. After baking 15-20 mins, then bake another 10 mins? Then add parmesan cheese to rolls then bake 5 mins? Is this correct. Step 12 to bake another 10 mins vs adding that time to step 11’s baking time is what is confusing me. Thanks this looks very good.

  • Mindy says:

    Also what kind of frozen rolls??? There are a bunch

  • Talia says:

    This looks delicious! Can this be made in the oven?

  • Peg says:

    This is the second time I made this dip. So great. But not sure if the grocery store in this area carries Asiago.
    Does anyone know if you can substitute pepper jack cheese? What other cheese will do?
