This is my mom’s famous Spinach Dip recipe and it does not disappoint. Warning: this stuff is addicting! Once you start, you just can’t stop. It’s always a big hit at all of our gatherings and we can almost guarantee the bowl will be empty by the end. It’s very easy to make and it’s a great appetizer to bring to your next gathering.
1 bag of frozen chopped spinach
16 oz sour cream
1 cup of mayonnaise
1 package Knorr Dry Leek Soup Mix
*Sometimes this can be difficult to find so I liked it here.
1 can (4oz) water chestnuts, drained and chopped
3 green onions chopped
1 loaf of sourdough bread
1 loaf of shepherds bread
*We usually double the recipe because this stuff goes fast!
Rinse thawed spinach in a colander. Drain excess water well.
In a bowl, mix together sour cream, mayonnaise, dry leek soup, onions and water chestnuts.
Add spinach to mixture.
Remove the top and insides of the sourdough bread to create a bowl. Serve dip inside the bread bowl.
Cut shepherds bread into 2 in squares and place around the bread bowl.
*Dip must be refrigerated until served.
