• Light Lunch Idea: Spinach Bread Bowls

    Looking for a light lunch or dinner idea? Fresh spinach lightly sauteed with garlic in a smooth creamy sauce with a hint of chili pepper, freshly ground black pepper and cheeses . . .
    These delicious morsels can be baked in ramekins, muffin tins or made into party appetizers by using Mini-muffin tins. They're absolutely delicious and you'll definitely want them again and again!

    You'll Need:

    • 13.3 oz roll of refrigerated french bread loaf
    • 2 T olive oil
    • 2 c. baby spinach, coarsely chopped
    • 1 clove fresh garlic, minced
    • 3 oz softened cream cheese
    • 1/2 c. sour cream
    • 2 T Parmesan cheese, shredded
    • 1/8 teaspoon Chipotle Chili Pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/3 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese or Italian Blend Shredded Cheese

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 4 small ramekins with non stick cooking spray, or lightly oil with olive oil.







    Slice french bread loaf into 4 equal size slices, (cut loaf in half, cut each piece in half again to get 4 even pieces)




    Flatten the dough until it about 3" across and place into each prepared ramekin.




    Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat, add coarsely chopped spinach for 2 minutes, add garlic and stir gently for another minute, remove from heat.



    In a medium bowl combine cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Add the seasonings, cooked spinach/garlic blend, Parmesan Cheese, Mixing until well combined. Carefully scoop dip into each of the centers of french bread bowls. A small ice cream scoop works wonderfully, but a tablespoon also works well.



    Sprinkle the top of each bread bowl with shredded cheese and bake for 15-17 minutes. The edges should just be turning brown. Remove from oven, let set for 3-5 minutes before removing from ramekin. Be careful, contents are very hot and may ooze out onto your hands!



    Serve as is, or for a light lunch, serve with a garden salad.
