  • 8 oz. full fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 (15 oz.) can artichoke hearts, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

  3. Transfer to a 9×9 baking dish or medium sized cast iron skillet. Spread in an even layer and top with remaining mozzarella.

  5. Serve with sliced French baguette and chilled white wine. Enjoy!

Notes

Use fresh spinach. Fresh ingredients always taste better and this recipe is no exception! Fresh spinach has just the right amount of moisture and will wilt perfectly into the dip.

Use fresh garlic. Similar to the spinach, fresh garlic will be best in this recipe! Skip the minced, jarred garlic and mince your own cloves!

Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Room temp cream cheese and sour cream will make this dip much easier to mix up and will also help it bake more evenly.
