This recipe is Yum-Yum! I don't like spinach, but love this recipe. I found it in our local paper. I made it for New Year's Eve and it was ate before anything else! I used Green Giant creamed spinach, as I couldn't find the Stouffer's and I left out the green onions just as a personal preference. You can use any type of round bread. I used Hawaiian bread, again just a personal selection. You can use round rye or sourdough, etc. Try it and you will see just how delicious this is! (Recipe by Nestle USA.)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Combine spinach souffle, cream cheese, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, and green onions in a large bowl.
- Slice top off of bread loaf; carefully remove soft bread from inside, leaving 1/2 inch thick shell.
- Cut top piece and soft bread into bitesize pieces.
- Spoon spinach mixture into shell; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
- Wrap loaf in foil, leaving filling exposed.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until heated through.
- Serve warm with bread pieces for dipping.
I made this for my son's birthday party the night before. Once I finished mixing the ingredients, I could not stop dipping into it myself! The Stouffer frozen spinach souffle did not seem to exist in our grocery store so I used Bird's Eye Creamed Spinach instead; worked out great. Other people asked what was added because it tasted a bit different than other bread bowl dips. The creamed spinach and the green onions/scallions did just that. We will continue to use this recipe for years to come. Thanks!
Very good dip. My daughter who is VERY picky loved it. I too left out the green onions and used creamed spinach (10 oz instead of 9 oz). The next time I make it I will probably increase the parmesan to 1 cup and maybe add a tiny bit of garlic powder.
This is without a doubt the BEST spinach dip ever! Every time I make this it I get rave reviews. Every one wants the recipe. I made this for a Christmas eve dinner party and it was gone before all of the guests arrived, those that came early ate it all up!
