Spinach, Bacon, and Onion Dip

Source: Everyday Food, November 2010


  • 4 slices bacon, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced medium
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 bar (8 ounces) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • Crostini or pita chips, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, cook bacon over medium, stirring occasionally, until browned and crisp, 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels. Discard all but 1 tablespoon fat from pan. Add onion to pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8 minutes. Add flour and cook 30 seconds. Add spinach, milk, sour cream, and cream cheese. Cook, stirring, until cream cheese melts, 2 minutes. Stir in bacon and 1/4 cup Parmesan.

  2. Transfer mixture to a 1 1/2-quart baking dish and top with 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake until bubbling, 14 minutes. Heat broiler and broil until top browns, 3 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes. Serve dip warm with crostini or pita chips.

Cook's Note

For the crostini, cut a baguette into slices, brush with olive oil, and bake in a 350-degree oven until lightly toasted.

    This stuff is always a hit whenever I have company, I used to serve it as an appetizer but people ate so much of it they couldn't eat dinner, so now I just use it for when we have people over for games or whatnot as a snack!!
