How to make spinach dip

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. 

Adding crisply fried bacon bits, diced orange or yellow peppers and chopped green onions changes the flavor, oh, so nicely!

A great way to serve this in a hollowed out loaf of pumpernickel bread. 

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.

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 its origins in Germany! I've just never eaten it over there. 

Below is a variation on the Knorr spinach dip recipe that is so popular. 

It's fun served in a hollowed-out loaf of pumpernickel bread with the hollowed-out bread pieces cut into cubes to use for dipping. Or, use a french loaf.

Trying to make this a bit healthier? Use a good quality natural yogurt (Greek yogurt would 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 or crackers. Either way, a great take-along treat for a party as well
