This is a classic dip that everyone loves to eat. Make in advance and serve when ready. The addition of the almonds rounds out the flavors and adds a toastiness that is way better than breadcrumbs.
1 package (10 ounces) frozen spinach
1 can (14 ounces) artichokes, drained, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
3/4 cupFisher® Sliced Almonds, divided
Cook spinach in a medium saucepan according to package directions. Transfer to a strainer to drain off any liquid and set aside.
Combine the butter and garlic in the saucepan used to cook the spinach. Cook over medium-low heat until the garlic softens, 2-3 minutes. Stir in the cream cheese, sour cream and Parmesan cheese. Heat 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Stir in the spinach and artichokes, continue heating 3 to 4 minutes or until hot. Chop ½ cup of the almonds, stir into spinach mixture. Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate or a 10-inch tart pan. Top with the remaining ¼ cup sliced almonds. Serve warm.
To brown top, broil dip for 1 to 2 minutes, if desired.
