Hey all, I was just trying to put together a couple easy/cheap recipes for a bbq/party I am having this Saturday. I think I am giong to make a spinach/artichoke dip but I was thinking I would like to make one more yummy side dish. Nothing too crazy since I am asking people to bring stuff as well. So who has some easy side dish BBQ goodies???
You probably already have a recipe picked out, but I have a pretty good recipe for spinach artichoke dip.
3 bricks of cream cheese
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp Mayonaise
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice (to taste)
Minced Garlic (to taste)
1 box frozen chopped spinach
1 jar marinated artichoke hearts
1 can shredded parmesan cheese (take out 2/3 cup)
Pre-heat oven to 350F
Allow cream cheese to warm at room temp and spinach to thaw
Chop articoke hearts
Mix cream cheese, mayo and lemon juice until well blended.
Mix in garlic, 2/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts
Spray 13"x9" baking dish with cooking spray pour mixture in. Cover with rest of parmesan cheese. Bake for ~20min or until cheese on top begins to brown. Serve warm with crackers. Rosemary and Olive Oil flavor Triscuits work well.
