Tips & Tricks for Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip
Soften Cream Cheese
It might surprise you, but using room temperature cream cheese in this recipe is actually quite important. If cream cheese is beaten or mixed while cold, the batter will be lumpy. So it's important to use softened cream cheese for this dip recipe. The texture is everything!
How to soften cream cheese:
- Break the cream cheese into small pieces spread out on a plate. Leave on the counter for approximately thirty minutes to one hour.
- Remove the cream cheese from any packaging—except the foil—and put it in a large bowl. Cover with warm water and let it sit for approximately 10 minutes.
- Remove cream cheese from all packaging—including the foil—and microwave for 10 seconds at a time, flipping at each interval. (It should only take roughly 50–60 seconds total to bring the cream cheese to room temperature.)
Don't be afraid to try new dippables with our spinach artichoke dip. It tastes cheesy, rich, and delicious, and basically anything dipped into it will taste awesome! A few ideas for you to explore, though, are snap peas, sliced bell peppers, toasted baguette slices, tortilla chips, pita chips, carrot sticks, Triscuit crackers, and Ritz crackers.
Variations to Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip
Change the Cheese
I used mozzarella and parmesan in this dip, but if you have other cheeses on hand, try those! Or swap out the cheeses if you love this recipe and just want to try it another way. Customise your dip to suit you and your guests' taste!
Cheeses to try:
Add Some Dill
Sprinkle some dill weed over the dip before baking. Why? Well, first, your house is going to smell incredible, and second, dill is so tasty! It doesn't take much to add lots of flavor, so a light sprinkle over the prepared dish will be plenty. You could always add more dill at a later time if you want more!
