I love the recipe for this spinach artichoke dip, it’s so easy to prepare and has so much flavor! If you like a bit of a kick to your dips, a dash of chili powder may be added or finely chopped jalapeno pepper to spice things up a notch.
Spinach and artichoke work so well together, it’s the ham that gives it the unexpected twist! So filling and delicious!
Can I substitute frozen spinach?
Yes, you sure can!
Frozen spinach tends to have more liquid than fresh spinach. Once the spinach is defrosted, be sure to squeeze out any excess liquid from the spinach. If you don’t, the dip will be runny.
The fact that this spinach artichoke dip is served with the cheese stuffed crescents makes this one-pan dip stand out in comparison to other dips.
Once baked, the crescents become flaky, the cheese melts inside the crescents and they are such a wonderful addition to the artichoke dip in a skillet.
Spinach Artichoke Dip in a skillet!
Be sure to tightly secure cheese in the crescent rolls so the cheese doesn’t ooze out.
Lightly covering the crescents with foil before baking will give the dip added time to cook. If you don’t cover the crescent balls, they will cook quickly and the spinach artichoke dip will not have time to heat and cook thoroughly.
Finely chop the fresh spinach and you don’t have to cook it beforehand. Yes!
What can I serve Spinach Artichoke Dip with?
Though the crescents are wonderful, you can add a few other sides to the dip.
- Veggies such as carrots, celery or cucumbers are a great addition to serve with the dip
- Crackers, bagel crisps, baguette pieces or tortillas may also be used.
