How to Make This Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe Heat oven to 350°F and set oven rack to middle position. Spray a 1-quart baking dish or soufflé dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. FOR THE BREADCRUMB TOPPING: Place bread, panko crumbs and Parmesan in a food processor fitted with the metal attachment. Pulse the bread 3-4 seconds. Drizzle in the oil and pulse 2-3 times. Set aside. FOR THE DIP: Heat large skillet over medium heat and add 1-tablespoon butter and 1-tablespoon oil. When the oil/butter are heated (before butter burns), add onions and cook, stirring often, until onions are softened, 4-5 minutes.

Sprinkle the flour over the vegetable mixture and cook 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Slowly stir in the half-and-half, Parmesan, lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire Sauce and salt.

Cheesy Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip 
Parmesan cheese is the only cheese used in this recipe, but that’s all you need! It’s strong flavor works so well with the artichoke and spinach and makes this appetizer oh so delicious! This dip will keep guests coming back for me – be sure to serve it with enough crackers!




Top Tips to Make This Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe Use panko breadcrumbs for the topping, they will be a lot crunchier than the normal ones. Bake the dip in a pre heated oven for the best results. Let the dip rest for 5 minutes before serving. Leftovers can be stored covered in the fridge and reheated.
