How To Make Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Amp up small gatherings with this rich spinach and artichoke dip. It combines frozen artichoke hearts and spinach, mixed with a thick cheese sauce.
Set an oven rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the flour and stir constantly for about 5 minutes or until the mixture is a golden sandy color.
Whisk in the milk and bring the liquid to a boil. Simmer, stirring constantly, for a few minutes, or until the liquid is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses, ½ teaspoon salt, and cayenne pepper. It will be quite thick. Set aside.
In a large sauté pan, heat the remaining butter over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for about 5 minutes until soft and translucent.
Add the spinach, garlic, chopped artichokes, thyme, and ½ teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes more. Transfer the vegetables to a large mixing bowl.
Add the cheese sauce to the vegetables and fold together until well combined. Transfer the mixture to an oven-safe serving dish and bake for 20 minutes, or until hot throughout and very lightly golden on top.
Serve with sliced baguette.
