This Spinach Artichoke Dip recipe is the one recipe everyone looks forward to. Whether it be for the holidays, game day, or a Saturday!
Skillet Spinach Artichoke Dip
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?
It is a carb-lovers dream. Warm buttery cheesy bread over a rich and decadent spinach dip?
Sign. Me. Up.
I was (am) so enamored with it that I took picture after picture after picture. That slightly browned parmesan cheese nestled in a hot skillet of ooey gooey deliciousness was enough to make my mouth water.
Most of us are pretty familiar with spinach & artichoke dips, but this one… this is the BEST.
What makes it the best?
Covered in warm fresh baked bread.
Covered in butter and cheese.
Not really, but I am in a little food coma.
I just can’t even. No words. Which is sucky since I am required by Food Blog Law to write all the words.
Please don’t turn me in.
I will feed you full of cheesy ooey gooey melty luxurious fabulousness.
Or just send you the recipe.
I can’t be trusted.
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.
