I seem to always be in charge of appetizers or snacks for family gatherings. I’m not ashamed to admit that main dishes are not my specialty. If you need appetizers, sides or desserts, I’m your girl! I went through my appetizers Pinterest board before deciding what to take to my mom’s for Easter and I found a recipe from Picky Palate for spinach cheese bread bowls. I modified them slightly to make these mini baked spinach dip cups.
These are pretty easy. You can see step-by-step photos on the Picky Palate site. I modified the recipe below and made them into mini cups in a mini muffin tin instead of regular sized cups. I also used frozen spinach.
Mini Baked Spinach Dip Cups
Take them out and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
These were SO good and adorable! I can’t wait to make these for our next get together. I didn’t end up making them for Easter dinner though since I wasn’t sure how they’d transport. I made a spicy Mexican dip with chips and fruit dip with fresh fruit.
On a side note, I had a little bit of the spinach mixture left, so we decided to just bake it at 350 degrees for about 7 minutes and used it as a dip. This may be my new go-to recipe for spinach cheese dip!
What do you normally take for family gatherings? Do you have a signature recipe or do you bring something new each time? I do a little of both.
