"A spinach dip that can be warmed or used chilled. Either way it always vanishes at our place and the rave reviews just keep coming! After dip is finished, break off pieces of the bread bowl and enjoy the best part of all."

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If your bread loaf is large, you may need to double the dip recipe.
  • To heat the dip: wrap the dip-filled loaf in aluminum foil. Place in a 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) oven for 1 to 2 hours. Remove from oven and turn foil back. Use reserved bread, cut into pieces, for dipping.

Dip was OK, but similar dip on back of Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix is far superior. Proportion of sour cream to mayo in that recipe is 2 to 1, so it does not have an overwhelming mayo taste. The secret to keeping dip from being runny is to squeeze as much water out of the spinach as possible. I use paper towels for this.


I made this for a baby shower and it was awesome!! I just served it with vegetable crackers and ritz crackers. Everyone was lingering around the table munching and raving about this dip! I did change quite a few things, however, sortof "made it my own". I added half a can of very finely chopped water chestnuts, only 1/2 cup each of sour cream and mayo, sprinkled in some parmesan cheese and added an 8 oz. container of cream cheese and an extra couple of drops of lemon juice. In addition to the seasoned salt, I sprinkled in some McCormick's vegetable seasoning, since I couldn't find any Knorr's. Oh, and I only added 1/4 cup of green onions. Yummy! :-)

I'm nuts too...

WOW! I served this last night to my guests and it was gone way before the end of the night! Everyone commented on how good it was, I used MaMa D's Italian bread recipe (on this site) for the bowl because the crust is so hard, and used the French Bread recipe (also on this site)for dipping. It's a great recipe Tracy, THANK YOU!!
