Spinach Dip

Feeds 9

8oz Cream Cheese

1 1/4 lb Sour Cream

1 cup Mayonnaise

3/4 lb Frozen Steamed Spinach, Thawed and Drained

1 Tbsp Minced Garlic

2oz or 1/4 cup Mozzarella Shredded

1 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt

1 1/2 tsp Ground White Pepper

1 tsp Black Ground Pepper

1 1/2 tsp Dry Basil

1 1/2 tsp Dry Oregano 

               Of all the staple recipes that everyone should have, an important one is a recipe for a good dip.  This is a necessity for entertaining, great for appetizers, and a perfect option for a snack.  It’s something you can enjoy at home on the couch watching a movie, or something that you can serve to guests at a dinner party.  The versatility of this recipe is what makes it such a valuable stable in any recipe collection. First soften the cream cheese with a mixer on the lowest speed for 5 minutes. If you don’t have a stand mixer then a hand mixer will work just as well on low speed.  If you don’t have either then you can use a whisk and a whole lot of elbow grease to soften the cream cheese (and you'll end up dreaming of a fancy mixer after this). In the middle of mixing scrape down the bowl, and then continue mixing.  Hopefully by the time the cream cheese is softened you are not thoroughly exhausted from mixing, and you have the energy to then add sour cream and mayo. Mix and scrape down the bowl and then continue to mix for 2-3 minutes. Then place thawed spinach into a strainer and squeeze out the excess moisture.  I always liked spinach dip because it tastes good and I can tell my mom I eat veggies.  Add the spinach, garlic, spices, and mozzarella to the bowl and mix for 2 minutes.  The dip really is worth all the mixing.  Scrape down the bowl and continue to mix until thoroughly creamy and consistent.

Scoop the mixture into whatever serving dish or bowl you plan on serving it in/eating it out of and then cover it with plastic wrap and throw it in the fridge.  Then it will be ready for whenever you plan to serve it/eat it.   This dip is perfect with pita chips, bread, regular chips, tortilla chips, honestly if you can think of a vehicle for dip then odds are this dip will be good with it.  Give guests a choice of chips, pita bread, or pretzels, or just eat it yourself with whatever is your favorite. You can serve it hot or cold. Whether you share or not is up to you.  Either way, it’ll be a hit.
