How to make Spinach Dip

Yum

Learn how to make Spinach Dip, aka Spinatcreme-Dip,  and create this favorite party treat for your next gathering. It's simple and delicious, a sure hit for your family movie night as well. It's one of those easy spinach recipes that will surprise you by how good it tastes. This is a variation on the Knorr spinach dip recipe that is so popular. Adding crisply fried bacon bits and chopped green onions changes the flavor, oh, so nicely!

Instead of the Knorr vegetable soup mix, you can use an envelope of your favorite salad dressing, such as ranch. Another option is to use a package of onion soup mix. Yummy.


How to make Spinach Dip

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 4 slices bacon, crisply fried and chopped
  • 1 package soup or salad mix (see above)
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen spinach, thawed, drained, and chopped
  • 1 pumpernickel bread. (see above)
Instructions:
  • Mix all ingredients (not the bread!) together and let stand in fridge for about 2 hours for flavor to develop.
  • Serve the dip in hollowed-out bread with bread cubes for dipping.
Hints:
  • You can also serve in bowl with bread cubes, vegetables, and crackers for dipping.

How German is this dip? I'm not really sure. I've only had it here in Canada. However, the original recipe is on the Knorr soup package. The original Knorr company is located in Heilbronn, Germany, and was founded in 1838 by Carl Heinrich Knorr. So, I could say, that this recipe has it's origins in Germany! I've just never eaten it over there.

Serve the dip in a hollowed-out loaf of pumpernickel bread with the hollowed-out bread pieces cut into cubes to use for dipping.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not in the traditional German pumpernickel bread! German pumpernickel is a very dense loaf that is purchased in a plastic-sealed square little package. The type of pumpernickel bread for this recipe is that type you buy as a large round "soft and fluffy" (the only way I can describe this) kind of loaf.

Trying to make this a bit healthier? Use a good quality natural yogurt (Greek yogurtwould be ideal). The lower the fat content, the better.

To make it easier to serve, just put it into a pretty bowl and serve it with cubes of pumpernickel bread. Either way, a great take-along treat for a party as well
