Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Spinach Dip Bites. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
Frozen chopped spinach is going to work the best. Fresh spinach can also be used, but it will alter the end texture and flavor slightly.
Used canned artichoke hearts for efficiency, they can be found at most grocery stores. I got mine from Trader Joe’s.
Freshly minced garlic is going to add a ton of flavor. You can also use pre-minced garlic from a jar.
I personally love using freshly grated parmesan cheese instead of pre-grated as I believe it adds a ton of more flavor, but it’s totally up to preference. Both will work just fine.
Cream cheese is going to add a creamy and tangy flavor to these spinach and cheese dip cups.
I use freshly grated mozzarella cheese which creates that really yummy cheesy texture. Pre-grated mozzarella will work too!
For the seasonings I did garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
Use a pre-made seamless crescent dough roll that you can pick up at most grocery stores!
How To Make
ONE: In a large bowl, combine frozen spinach, chopped artichoke hearts, minced garlic, parmesan cheese, softened cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
TWO: Roll out the seamless crescent dough and use a pizza cutter to make 12 equal squares. Place these squares in a greased muffin tin. Then, add 1-2 tablespoons of the spinach cheese dip mixture in the center.
THREE: Bake for 15-17 minutes, let cool for 5 minutes before removing from tins and enjoy warm!
Tips And Tricks
Use an electric mixer to combine ingredients quickly and efficiently. If you don’t have an electric mixer, use two forks or a potato masher!
Make sure to grab the seamless crescent dough and not the ones with seams in them.
Don’t skimp on the cheese! Add more on top if preferred.
No need to mold the dough to the muffin tins, once you place the spinach dip in the center, the dough will bake around the mixture creating the perfect cup.
How To Serve And Store
Serve these spinach and cheese dip bites warm as an appetizer or snack.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 2 days. Best reheated in the air fryer or microwave.
Taste And Texture
