This yummy Houston’s Spinach-Artichoke Dip Copycat Recipe can be made ahead and served in individual ramekins (or one large dish) for a guaranteed party appetizer hit.
This Houston’s spinach-artichoke dip copycat recipe is one of my favorite appetizers. My friend Sally Reiser shared this recipe in a Briarwood Christian School cookbook years ago, and I’ve made it myriad times since. Houston’s has always .been a fave restaurant of Zane’s and mine. This dip….their Danish baby back ribs….yum!!!!
Make ahead: I like to make this Houston’s spinach-artichoke dip, place the mixture into an airtight canister, and refrigerate it (before cooking) a day or two ahead of time. Just before the party, I spoon the dip into one large serving dish or individual ramekins (photo above) to pop into the oven until bubbly
Microwave or bake: The dip can be microwaved or baked. I prefer baking, as the edges get golden and the cheese gets a slightly crisp edge. If you microwave, I suggest using a 80% level and cooking in 5 minute increments.
Serving options: This can be made in one large quiche or casserole dish or in small serving pieces. When doing individual ramekins, I place them all on one baking sheet for easy in and out of the oven. Folks love having their own portion of dip! I link to my white ramekins and some others below.
Because the holidays are upon us, this dip would be a lovely appetizer served in individual ramekins. Here are a few other ideas for holiday worthy appetizers you might enjoy.
- Marie’s Beautiful and Delicious Charcuterie Board
- French Onion Cheese Fondue
- 3-Ingredient Apricot Glazed Party Meatballs
- Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Crusted Little Sausages
All of the above are tested and approved by me and my family and make fabulous appetizers for the holidays or any time of year.
If you have an upcoming party or tailgate, give this dip a try. I’d love to hear how it turns out, so please leave comments below. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
