Default recipe for RC spinach dip

I tried the spinach dip for the first time on our last cruise and surprised that I liked it, as I am a picky eater and would never eat spinach. I would like to make some and was wondering if someone out there has the recipe and would share it. Thanks.

We were on the Monarch and it was in the dinning room one evening. I have also seen it on other ships also.

Well, if you like it, you could probably do as my wife did for another dip--ask the staff. She got a printed list of ingredients. Quantities were missing, so there will probably have to be some experimentation. She was also informed that the smallest unit they use is a gallon!

Sort of like the recipe for moose and rabbit stew:

Dice one moose etc

I have a great recipe, but don't know exactly what I did with it.......however, here is a link to some recipes.
The first one is similar to mine, except I didn't use cream cheese or mayonnaise.
I know I used fresh spinach, artichoke hearts, cream, and jack cheese.
Pine nuts are an optional item, but good.
Maybe some of these will be what you are looking for. It is on Allrecipes com

Most, if not all spinach-and-artichoke dips are the same or similar. (You need the 'chokes.) I had this on the Majesty and it was fine, but no better than anywhere else, really.

My sister makes it with a box of thawed/drained chopped spinach, sour cream, cream cheese, parmesan cheese and canned artichokes. Mix it all up. Serve with chips. FABULOUS.

EDIT

Just skimmed through it, and no luck.

Default Love that dip

Hi Pat,

Diana and I were on the same B2B with you in Sept.

We enjoyed the dip (and the trip) so much that we booked a B2B2B for next Sept. 13th, 17th, and 20th.

Take care, and hope to see you guys on another cruise. Meanwhile I'll keeping looking back here to see if anyone comes up with the recipe.

Tom

Thanks everyone for the recipe tips. Guess I'll keep looking and hope to find a recipe to try.

Hi Tom, So you are doing a 3 B2B. enjoy it as I'm sure you will. My sister and I got on the Sovereign, before it left Fl. and was on it for 5 sailings straight. It was great but then we had to come back to reality.

The Spinach dip is certainly one of my favorite appetizers. Had my last fix on the Monarch too.

Thumbs up Hi,

The one I have on their ships is actually a warm Spinach/Sweet potato dip served with Tortilla chips.
My favorite appetizer.
I have two of the cookbooks and it is not in either of them.
EDIT: It was always called Spinach/Sweet potato dip before. Now I looked on a menu and it is just called Spinach Dip. ??

Default I found my recipe!

Here it is, and I think it is wonderful, better than any other. My opinion

Hot Spinach Cheese Dip

1 can 13.75 oz. quartered artichokes hearts, rinsed and drained
2 green onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 T. butter or vegetable oil
1 bunch fresh spinach, rinsed, trimmed, drained and chopped.
1 1/2 T. flour
3/4 C. whipping cream
1 1/2 C. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 C. grated Parmesan Cheese
1 T. pine nuts (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Tortilla chips

In a large skillet, saute artichoke hearts, green onions, and garlic in melted butter, stirring often, 2 to 3 minutes, until onions are limp.
Add spinach and continue cooking 1 minute, until cooked down.
Stir in flour and cook, stirring 1 to 2 minutes.
Gradually stir in cream and heat until mixture boils and is slightly thickened.
Stir in Jack cheese, Parmesan cheese and pine nuts.
Heat just until cheese is melted. Do not boil.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Spoon into a heat-proof serving dish and serve with tortilla chips.
Make 4 to 5 servings.

Hot Spinach Cheese Dip

1 can 13.75 oz. quartered artichokes hearts, rinsed and drained
2 green onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 T. butter or vegetable oil
1 bunch fresh spinach, rinsed, trimmed, drained and chopped.
1 1/2 T. flour
3/4 C. whipping cream
1 1/2 C. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 C. grated Parmesan Cheese
1 T. pine nuts (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Tortilla chips

In a large skillet, saute artichoke hearts, green onions, and garlic in melted butter, stirring often, 2 to 3 minutes, until onions are limp.
Add spinach and continue cooking 1 minute, until cooked down.
Stir in flour and cook, stirring 1 to 2 minutes.
Gradually stir in cream and heat until mixture boils and is slightly thickened.
Stir in Jack cheese, Parmesan cheese and pine nuts.
Heat just until cheese is melted. Do not boil.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Spoon into a heat-proof serving dish and serve with tortilla chips.
Make 4 to 5 servings.
Sounds yummy! I'll have to try it. Thanks for sharing.

It IS! And it's lo-cal, too, providing you eat it standing up, in the dark, with no one watching.
We all know that calories don't count that way...
