Spinach & Artichoke Dip Cups

I’m not gonna lie – when I thought about what I was going to write about in this post last week I thought I was going to be talking about the 49ers winning and and that I would be bragging about how awesome SF is – I think I got a little too overzealous. Yesterday was hard for all of us and today was just rough. No one was smiling or laughing, no one was wearing red and gold, and even the skies were gloomy and overcast. I’m sure every losing team fan says this after the super bowl but we were cheated, flat out robbed! The refs made some ridiculous calls and the Ravens got away with a lot. But that’s all I’m going to say about the game – on to happier and tastier things.

Besides Superbowl Sunday being about the game (which we will not speak of again) it’s also about the FOOD. We went to our friends house and I made little spinach and artichoke dip cups.

Melt the butter in a pan and add the garlic. Cook for about a minute or until garlic becomes fragrant. Throw in the spinach and saute until wilted and dark green.

Add the spinach, garlic mixture and the cream cheese to the pre-made dip and stir in parmesan cheese. (I also used store bought biscuits but you can easily make your own) Cut each biscuit into quarters and press them into the buttered muffin tin.

Scoop the spinach mixture into each cup and top with another layer of parm cheese. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until the edges and bottoms of the cups are golden brown.

And VOILA spinach dip in mini cup form, good enough to make the saddest 49ers fan happy again!
