I love experimenting with different appetizer recipes and this Spinach Dip was one. I added the Pineapple and Cream Cheese called my "little-tummy-grumbling-guinea-pigs" and watched while they gobbled it up so fast it wasn't even funny!


I like making two Bread Bowls up for this Spinach Dip. I make one with the Pineapple and Cream Cheese and the other as the original favorite version. Very easy to make and one of the winners in Party Food. Either having a few friends over for Dinner, add this favorite as one fantastic starter to your Main Dish Choice and wow your guests!


I also like to make this favorite with a pick from the BBQ Recipes when we're having a barbeque party. I've even put out this tasty bread bowl with a favorite pick from the Main Dish Recipes. I know you won't be disappointed with this choice in Appetizer Recipes!


If you're the adventurous busy cook, try this tasty pick in Appetizer Recipes with pineapple, and be prepared for the Ah's, Don't worry if you don't want to add the fruit, this Spinach Dip is just as fantastic without. If you cant find Sourdough Bread, try this Dip with either a French Bread or a great Italian Bread, for a great change for this favorite in Appetizer Recipes.


2 packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1 package of Knorr vegetable soup mix

1 package of Knorr Leek soup mix

4 green onions, chopped

4 fresh garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper corns (or to taste)

11/2 cups sour cream

1 package of Philadelphia cream cheese, softened

Optional
1 can pineapple, crushed and drained or 1 can mandarin oranges, drained

Prepare Sourdough Bread:

About 1/4 - 1/2 inch down from top of bread, cut off top with serrated knife and set aside. Hollow out the inside of the loaf by pulling out inside, pull out in bite sized pieces until all of the soft fresh inside has been removed, place in medium sized bowl and set aside.

In another large mixing bowl, combine Philadelphia cream cheese, Hellmans Mayonnaise and sour cream mixing until well combined.

Add, both packages of soup mixes and stir to combine.

Add chopped water chestnuts if desired, green onions, fresh garlic cloves and fresh ground pepper corns mixing until well combined. Taste and add more fresh ground pepper if desired.

Stir in thawed, drained and squeezed dry spinach and mix well until combined.


Optional and not a must
If desired, for that "extra special" taste delight, add in either one of your choice of the drained crushed pineapple or mandarin oranges and stir until all ingredients are mixed together and well combined.


Pour your spinach dip into hollowed out sourdough bread bowl, cover with top for decoration, or cut up and add to your bowl of bread pieces that you have set aside.



Place bread bowl of spinach dip on decorate platter, place the bite sized pieces of soft inside bread around the outer edges of the plate. You may want to cut up extra bread, a baguette works great or add some crackers with this favorite as you will be surprised to see it literally disappear within minutes!
