Game day spinach dip

2013 January 22

In yesterday’s “Super Bowl party prep made easier” post I referred to two game day appetizers, a southwestern vegetable dip and the always popular spinach dip. I’m going to share both recipes this week and first up is my favorite: the classic Knorr spinach dip.

Yes, I said Knorr and yes, it’s off the back of the package.

I have loved this spinach dip recipe for years and not just because it’s one of the easiest dips to make. Every time I bring this spinach dip to a party, people absolutely love it.  When I tell them it’s from the back of the Knorr Vegetable recipe mix, they kind of can’t believe it.

I think the rave reviews of this recipe are the result of a few minor adjustments, all of which are optional of course.

Optional only if you want your spinach dip to taste like everyone else’s spinach dip.

I highly recommend serving it in a sourdough bread bowl. This time I used a square bowl and loved how it turned out!

Below is the printable recipe for my take on the classic Knorr spinach dip.

Game day spinach dip
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
A slightly tweaked version of the class Knorr spinach dip recipe. Still just as easy but even more delicious.
  • 1 (12-oz) package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted, rinsed and squeezed dry
  • 1 (16-oz.) container light sour cream
  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 package Knorr Vegetable recipe mix
  • 1 can sliced water chestnuts, chopped
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • 1 sourdough bread bowl
  1. Combine all ingredients and chill overnight.
  2. Cut out center of bread bowl and remove extra bread. Fill with spinach dip.
  3. Cut or tear extra bread into bite-size pieces for dipping. Serve dip with sliced baguettes (sourdough or multigrain), pita crackers, tortilla chips (white, yellow or blue corn), sliced vegetables (carrots, bell peppers) or butter crackers.
