I have tried Spinach Dip at just about every restaurant that I could find the past couple of months. I can't get enough of the stuff!! I decided to have a go at making my own. After much experimenting this is a dip that will make your tastebuds thank me.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take both boxes of frozen spinach and place in boiling water until cooked.
  2. When done strain and squeeze in a cheesecloth or dry with good old paper towels.
  3. It is important that the spinach be very dry.
  4. When you have finished drying chop the spinach into a very fine consistancy.
  5. When done place spinach into a large mixing bowl and put aside for later.
  6. In a heavy saucepan melt butter.
  7. Add the garlic and the onions and saute for 3 to 5 minutes.
  8. Add flour to make a roux.
  9. Stir and cook for about 30 seconds.
  10. Slowly add heavy cream and as you do this stir with a whisk to prevent any lumping.
  11. When you see and feel everthing getting all nice and thick and bubbly you will want to add lemon juice, pecorino romano cheese, and the mozzarella cheese.
  12. Stir until cheese is melted and the mixture looks smooth.
  13. Now when you get the smoothness add the sour cream and mix for an additional minute.
  14. Now that this is done combine the spinach that you dried out earlier and the the yummy cheese mix.
  15. Fold everything together in something big until you can't see the dark green color of the spinach, (should take a minute maybe two).
  16. Now place the dip into your serving bowls.
  17. Take the Vermont White Cheddar and sprinkle enough to cover the top of each bowl, or to your taste.
  18. More is better!
  19. After this all you have to do is put a bowl in the microwave and heat for about 1 minute or until cheese is melted all the way.
  20. When you remove it from the microwave just stir in the White Vermont Cheddar so it mixes evenly.
  21. Sit back, eat and enjoy.
  22. Exercise!
