Florentine Artichoke Dip

recipe
Spinach, artichoke hearts, and two cheeses blend beautifully in this hot appetizer. Roasted garlic bagel chips were our favorite dippers.

Yield:

4 cups

Recipe from

Oxmoor House

Ingredients

1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
2 (6 1/2-ounce) jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 1/2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 large garlic cloves, pressed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 cups French breadcrumbs (homemade) (see Note)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Preparation

Drain spinach; press between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.

Combine spinach, artichoke hearts, and next 5 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Spoon into a lightly greased 11" x 7" baking dish. Combine breadcrumbs and butter; sprinkle over spinach mixture.

Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25 minutes. Serve with assorted crackers, bagel chips, or breadsticks.

Note: To get 1 1/2 cups French breadcrumbs, tear off a piece of a baguette. Pulse in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. Measure crumbs, tear off another chunk, and repeat procedure until you get 1 1/2 cups.
