Entertaining for family and friends is one of my favorite things to do. I love planning what I am going to make, and the food prep involved, and the organization of the event then watch it all come together. When I plan a gathering at my house, I take it very serious because I want my guess to enjoy themselves and indulge in the good eats that I had prepared for them, in other words, I love to see them eat.
This Spinach Parmesan Dip is a copycat recipe from Knorr’s, but I put my own twist to it by adding Ground Red Pepper and Parmesan Cheese to the recipe. Doing this allowed the original Spinach Dip that Knorr’s created to be served as a cold dip, it can now be served as a hot dip also. Adding the Parmesan Cheese is a great addition to this recipe, by doing this you can now serve the dip hot. When you heat it, the parmesan Cheese melts and makes the dip creamy and it just melts in your mouth.
I love this recipe hot or cold, it all depends on what I have a taste for, but if your serving a crowd, then I recommend serving it cold, that way you can enjoy your guest without having to keep reheating it. So, for your next gathering give this recipe a try, you’ll be glad you did it is a crowd pleaser. See the illustrations and recipe below.
