Baked Creamy Spinach Dip
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min.
Makes14 servings (1/4 cup each)
I followed the recipe as is and there seems to be too much liquid for the amount of flour to thicken the sauce. Mine never thickened. I had to add a little slury of cornstarch and water to get it to thicken. I also wound up adding some garlic salt as my sister and I thought it needed a little more flavor.
This is a delicious and different take on the usual spinach dip. Made it as written and served it with toasted pita and pumpernickel bread cut into 4 squares-good with both! ***delowenstein: I don't understand how you give a recipe 5 stars when you have basically changed the flavor by changing so many ingredients! Please make the recipe as written and then advise what you would like to change to create a new flavor. Otherwise it can be confusing to new cooks as what ingredients to use.
I'd used 4 cups cooked chopped spinach and also in addition to the 1 Tbsp. butter and 2 minced garlic cloves, I added 1 small onion, finely chopped. I'd used just 1/2 cup 2% milk, rather than 12-oz. evaporated milk. I'd used 1/2 cup each grated Parmesan cheese, DIVIDED and 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese. I'd omitted the cream cheese and ricotta cheese. I'd baked 25 to 30 minutes at 350o F., then baked 10 to 15 minutes longer, watching carefully and rotating the baking dish to melt the Parmesan cheese. I'd kept the nutmeg, salt, pepper the same amount. I'd greased my baking dish for easier serving of this dip! This is a delicious dip recipe!

I don't see why it couldn't be made in the microwave...never know until you try! Let me know how it turns out if you do so :DYou just want to be sure that the flour gets cooks and will thicken. Also the cheese may not brown on top in the microwave.
Can this be made in the microwave?
was a hit at the football party!
