Easy Game Day Spinach Artichoke Dip

In our house Patriots game day is a HUGE deal. Chris, the boys and myself all huddle up on the sofa to watch the game every single week. In fact, we have missed some really cool parties and events over the years because we were afraid we’d miss the game. Gasp!

If you know anything about professional football, you know that a 60 minute game usually takes about three hours to play. For our family, three hours on the sofa watching the game means one thing: snacks. Great snacks are a necessity! We usually put out a pretty decent spread for each game because often times, we have other people over to tailgate at home with us. This past Sunday, it was just the four of us and I made one of our favorites. My famous spinach artichoke dip. It’s super easy to make and it is always the first thing to go whenever I make it.

I ran over to Walmart to pick up everything I needed to make my dip, but while I was there I grabbed a package of Viva(R) Vantage(R) 6 Big Rolls to help with the clean up. I’ve been known to make some epic messes when I cook, so I wanted to make sure I was prepared accordingly when it came time to clean up my mess.

Once I was back home, I whipped up my dip in no time and we were ready for the game at 1. If you want to impress your guests the next time you tailgate at home, try it – it’s seriously easy.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups of parmesan cheese
  • 1 (10 ounce) box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 2/3 cup of sour cream
  • 1 cup of cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic (if you love garlic like me, feel free to use more)

Here’s what you do:

1. Start by preheating your oven to 375?F.
2. Mix together the Parmesan cheese, spinach, and artichoke hearts.

3. Combine remaining ingredients and mix with spinach mixture.

Because I mixed my ingredients in a regular mixing bowl, I had to transfer it to a baking dish before I popped it into the oven.

4. Bake for about 30 minutes and it will come out of the oven all ooey, gooey & yummy and should look something like this:

5. I normally serve my dip with pita chips, but you can serve yours with crackers or toasted bread – whatever you like to dip.

But remember how I mentioned that I usually make a mess when I cook? Sure enough, I made a big old mess, but thankfully I had my Viva(R) Vantage(R) 6 Big Rolls handy to help me with the clean up.

My counter was cleaned up in no time.

I love that they stay tough even when they’re wet so they resist ripping or tearing. They really made cleanup a snap.
