Spinach and Artichoke dip to the next level?
 
Is there anything you do that makes you S & A dip even better than the standard recipes? If you have thoughts, I would love to hear them.... Don't know what I was thinking when I bought at an 80 ounce bag of frozen spinach! :hyst:

frozen spinach makes a terrific crustless quiche too. I use a pound of chopped spinach, really well squeezed dry, about 7-8 eggs mixed with something like some cream, and an embarrassing amount of grated sharp cheddar cheese. I microwave it--takes a long time, maybe even 14 minutes sometimes, to be set in the center.

this is a great go to meal for when you are hungry and not motivated to cook. it heats up in the microwave like a dream.

I love spinach and artichoke dip but even more, I love chunky spinach artichoke and jalapeno dip! The jalapeno adds a nice little zing. I usually buy a tub of it at Costco but you can certainly make your own.

Another great use of frozen spinach is LindaSue's spinach lasagna. :yummy:

Our new microwave won't be delivered for 10 more days, but I will try this!

No help with S & A dip, but a tip for frozen spinach:
Thaw first, then use a potato ricer to squeeze it dry.
(I use it for canned tuna, too)

I second LindaSue's lasagna recipe!
