Spinach Dip with Dill Bread

April 3, 2013

I decided to turn my apartment warming into a pre-Saint Patrick’s shindig. This spinach-rich dip and dill biscuit bread were a great combination, plus it is easy to put together. If you wanted to vary the recipe a bit, consider trying Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. You could also add a little bit of hot sauce for some kick!

  • 10 oz (1 package) frozen chopped spinach, thawed with the excess water squeezed out
  • 3/4 c scallions, chopped
  • 8 oz (1 can) water chestnuts, drained and rinsed and chopped
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix

  • 1/4 c cheddar cheese, grated (scant)
  • 1/4 c butter, melted
  • 3/4 t dill weed

Then you will…
