Growing up in Wisconsin, any good party always had table with a large array of savory dips. The king among dips all was the bread bowl dip which usually contained something hot and cheesy. One of my personal favorites is the kosher cheesy hot spinach artichoke bread bowl dip recipe. You just can't go wrong with a steamy savory dip that has a container you can eat when you are done.
Spinach Artichoke Dip Is Easy To Make
One of the advantages to the kosher spinach artichoke dip is that it has a complex look while being very easy to make. The hardest part of this dip is finding the ingredients. You may not have some of the ingredients laying around the house so you will need to head to the local market to pick them up. You do not need to use fresh ingredients for this dip, canned or frozen artichokes and spinach will work just fine.
How To Make A Bread Bowl
This is the part of the kosher spinach artichoke bread bowl dip recipe that scares most people away. I think this is because many have never tried to make a bread bowl and are afraid that they will not do it correctly. The bread bowl is very easy (and fun) to make.
- Slice the top off of a round loaf of bread. This is usually an artisan loaf that can be purchased from the bakery section of a grocery store.
- You will now have a flat surface and can start using your hands to take small scoops out the center of the loaf . Always start in the center and work your way out to the sides so that you do not tear the sides.
- Keep on taking small scoops out with your hand until your bread bowl measures approximately 1 inch of thickness on all sides. Do not make the bread bowl any thinner than this or you risk tearing the sides.
- I like to put thin coating of olive oil on the inside of the the finished bowl and then place it into the oven by itself at 350ºF for 5 minutes before adding the filling.
Serving Suggestions for Hot Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip
The great thing about this dip is that you can dip almost anything into it. We liked the corn chips because they provide a good base to for scooping a lot of dip. You can also use the scooped out inside of the bread bowl as a dipper. If you are going to do this I suggest cutting them into 1 inch cubes, coating with olive oil, and toasting them along with the bread bowl. Try also dipping:
- Red peppers
- Green peppers
- Bread sticks
- Potato chips
- French fries
- Onion rings
- Crispy potato latkes (heavy but unforgettable)
Bread Bowl Dips Are A Family Experience
This is a dish that is prepared with guests in mind. There is something about standing around a hot delicious kosher spinach artichoke bread bowl dip that just brings people together. While we are all keeping socially distant it is easy to forget about dishes like this that are usually served at gatherings with friends and extended family. Everything that is great about this dip also works in a smaller more intimate setting. Even if your crowd is limited to just your immediate family you can still get everyone involved in preparing the dip. When ours came out of the oven we could not stop the whole family from dipping at the same time. We had a blast just standing around the dip and eating it together as a family.
