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!

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.

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)
