Also, I've been waiting for a good opportunity to use this cute photo of Lola, taken last year on the drive home from Christmas. She longs for the salt air too.
This is an easy and quick appetizer that is sure to please your guests. I keep a couple of cans of artichoke hearts in the pantry so I can whip this up on short notice.
Serve with toasted baguette slices or olive oil crackers.
Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip
2 cans (14 ounces each) of artichoke hearts packed in water, well drained, chopped
5+ handfuls of spinach, chopped
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tablespoons grated onion
3/4 cup white cheddar or romano cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Transfer to a baking dish and bake 20-25 minutes until bubbling. I like to finish it for a couple of minutes in the broiler to brown the top. Serve fresh out of the oven with toasted baguette slices or crackers.
