This is the ultimate spinach dip! I’ve eaten spinach dip so very many times in my life but this one beats them all. It is cheesy, creamy, garlicky, and perfect with fresh veggies or crackers.
Since this spinach dip is low carb and uses a lot of Nature’s Promise organic products from Stop & Shop I have no guilt eating this deliciousness at parties and barbecues. Or just for lunch. I can’t say the same about my mom’s vegetable soup packet spinach dip in a pumpernickel bread bowl.
I really like shopping at Stop & Shop for organic products. Unlike some other grocery stores that bunch all the organic products in one small section Stop & Shop spreads out their Nature’s Promise products throughout the store. That makes it so much easier to compare ingredients to the conventional brands. It also makes it easier to compare prices. Nature’s Promise products are priced similarly to all the conventional brands even though they are organic or free from artificial colors, preservatives, and flavors.
I spent some extra time in the store the other day checking out all the Nature’s Promise products in greater detail. There are so many I had a hard time choosing for my recipe. I decided on spinach and mozzarella which are two of the key ingredients in my Bacon Caesar Spinach Dip.
In addition, I also bought Nature’s Promise Frozen Blackberries and Nature’s Promise Barbecue Sauce for my kids. I try to avoid certain processed ingredients like High Fructose Corn Syrup when I shop for them. Buying organic for my family helps me be a little more aware of what my children are eating. It helps me try to keep more whole foods in their diets.
It might sound crazy but they love snacking on frozen fruits and veggies still frozen. Organic corn is a popular snack in my house. Being a mom of four comes with enough stress that I don’t need to worry about the ingredients in my kids’ foods.
12 oz. bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
4 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
16 oz Nature’s Promise frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
6 oz Nature’s Promise shredded mozzarella
Preheat oven to 350.
Cook bacon until crisp, drain, and crumbled or chop it into small pieces.
In a large bowl mix the cream cheese, mayo, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. Mix in the spinach, half the bacon, and half the mozzarella.
Spread in a deep dish pie plate. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and bacon on top.
Bake at 350 until hot and bubbly. About 15 minutes.
Alternatively, you can microwave the dip for about 5 minutes. The only down side to microwaving is the cheese doesn’t get golden on top. But on a hot summer day that is a sacrifice I am willing to make.
Also, if you are an artichoke fan feel free to add some for a Bacon Caesar Spinach Artichoke Dip. Now that is a mouthful of goodness. I do like spinach artichoke dip sometimes but I wasn’t feeling the artichokes today. I may add some next time.
