This was a great dip, I used pancetta instead of bacon because it's easier to find in Europe. The reheated dip did not stand up well even when reheated in the oven. Next time I will make it in smaller batches to avoid leftovers.
Spinach-Artichoke Dip with Bacon
This warm, creamy dip will keep guests happily occupied while you attend to the rest of the meal. It's also a good candidate for a potluck office party. Simply assemble the dip the night before, and refrigerate; bring to room temperature, and bake just before serving. Toast baguette slices, cool to room temperature, and store in a zip-top plastic bag.
