  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (*or to taste)
  • 3/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 8 oz. Package Cream Cheese
  • 1 10 oz. Package Frozen Chopped Spinach (1.5 cups squeezed) ((thawed))

  • Prepare your bread bowl if using. Cut off the top and scoop out the middle.
  • Add dip to desired serving bowl and serve cold with veggies, crackers, bread and/or pita!

Notes

Tip:
  • If cooled before serving, let it dip into room temperature before serving. (Cream cheese will be too stiff to be taken if immediately removed from the fridge.)
  • Bake your ribbons or bake your buns for crispy and warm elements!
  • Attach a small spoon of dish in the sauce so you don't have to worry about the double sauce out there!
  • Save the part in your bread bowl! Freeze and use as croutons or to make meatballs later!
