    I served this at my Christmas/housewarming party. It was a big hit, both hot and cold. I just replaced the mayo with plain, ff yogurt (which made mayo-haters, like me, happy). I served it with pita chips & baguette. Definitely keeping this one on hand.

    I wasn't as wowed by this recipe as others were. It was a good solid recipe. Easy to make. Easy to serve. My only real complaint was that the spinach was kind of tough and stringy. Maybe it was my spinach although I did use chopped frozen spinach. Were I to make it again I think I would probably whirl it in the food processor to make sure it was chopped very fine and there weren't long strings of spinach to get stuck in my teeth.

    Everyone flipped for this recipe. It went before all the guests arrived. I think I'll make again but inside little crispy wonton wrappers. That way everyone has a perfect bit.

    I thought this was a good flavored recipe but it was too dry - maybe add sour cream or more mayo. I made the recipe exactly as written.

    Delicious! Very creamy, and the cheese flavors were rich! We left out the bacon and put about 2/3 can of artichokes. My whole family loved it!

    This recipe was so easy and was a BIG HIT! The bacon was a nice surprise. My guests loved this dip and asked for the recipe. I used canola oil mayo and prepared it the night before, then baked it the next day. I served it with tortilla chips. This will become a signature dip. Add a little water when re-heating.

    This recipe is amazing. It is not only the yummiest spinach and artichoke dip I've ever eaten but it's so quick and easy. You can throw this together in a matter of minutes if you need a quick appetizer. I use light mayonnaise instead of fat free because I like the taste of real mayo in this dish. To make it quick and easy, I cook my bacon in the microwave, gets it nice and crispy in just a couple minutes without the greasy mess.

    Excellent spinach artichoke dip. I used reduced fat mayo instead of fat free but everything else was the same.

    i was disappointed in this recipe. while i love all of the ingredients individually, together they were underwhelming. the cream cheese texture was too prominent, giving the dip a paste-like texture. i would consider adding spinach and bacon to different artichoke dip recipes that i've liked in the past. i don't think i'll be making this recipe again.

    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.

    Party Hit!!! I've made this dip now for several gatherings and it's a crowd pleaser. The bacon really sets it over the top. I usually make it day before and bake it at the party it's so simple and full of flavor with no added spices.
