If you love artichoke and spinach dip, then you’ve got to try it transformed into a dinner-ready bake! The artichokes’ mildly nutty, vegetal flavor is gently enhanced with a few minutes on the grill; plenty of cheese and baby spinach round out the recipe, plus crushed crackers as a golden, crunchy topping.

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high and brush the grill grates with oil. Grill the artichoke hearts until char marks appear, about 1-2 minutes per side. Cut each artichoke heart in half.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Fold the grilled artichoke hearts, spinach, mozzarella, cream cheese, Parmesan, sour cream and garlic together in a large bowl until combined. Season with salt, to taste.
  3. Spread the spinach mixture in an even layer in the prepared baking dish. Top with the crushed crackers and bake until the cheese is melted and the top is lightly browned, about 20-30 minutes. Top with the parsley and serve.

Recipe Tip: Serve on its own, or as a dip with assorted fresh vegetables and the remaining golden crackers!

Recipe Tip: Feel free to substitute Monterey Jack, white cheddar or pepper jack cheese for the mozzarella cheese!
