Do you ever find yourself at an Italian restaurant looking at the appetizers and deciding between the garlic bread or the Spinach & Artichoke dip? I don’t anymore. You know why? Because after one fateful dinner years ago at Maggiano’s when we ran out of bread for our dip and I used our garlic bread instead.

We LOVE this Spinach Artichoke Dip Cheesy Bread

Plus I mean, if you are headed out to an Italian restaurant you aren’t normally thinking about your waistline, so why not dip garlic bread in spinach and artichoke dip right? RIGHT! It took just one bite before we were all converts!

The recipe itself is pretty easy to make and gets it’s base ingredients from my spinach and artichoke dip recipe. The main differences are that there isn’t more liquids in it to keep it in dip form. I took out the wine and the sour cream and pumped up the butter because it is garlic bread after all. Spinach & Artichoke Dip Garlic Bread is two of your favorite appetizers in one. Cheesy garlic bread meets spinach and artichoke dip and it only takes 30 minutes until you're enjoying it!For my tastes I would double the crushed red pepper because I like a hint of it in the background. With the kids and all, leaving it at the current amount is better.

Tools Used in the Making of this Spinach Artichoke Dip Cheesy Bread:
Sheet Pan: I love this sheet pan because even at the highest temperatures it won’t warp at all. Plus the price is amazing for it. I have 4 in my kitchen (I cook in large volumes for clients).
Artichoke Hearts: There are a lot of varieties of Artichoke hearts, I love these. Any will work just don’t use this kind. They’re delicious but the brine will add flavors we don’t want in this dish.
Food Processor: This is the newer version of the one I have used and loved for ten years. It is a workhorse and the new model has similarly awesome reviews…and it is so affordable!

  1. This is the first time I’ve been to your blog and I love you already!!! My grocery list was a sad 5-item list until I chanced upon your blog. Now, at past midnight, I am salivating and currently updating my grocery list with a week’s worth of lunch and dinner options. This spimach artichoke cheesy garlic bread sealed the deal for me. Can’t wait to make them.

    1. Yay!! So glad you found me too!! Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out on any of the new recipes coming out as well.

  2. I landed on your recipe twice while searching, must be fate. 🙂 Unfortunately I don’t have artichokes on hand but I hope it will still be tasty.

    My only question is how this travels. I’d like to bring it to a potluck but there’s no kitchen there. Hoping the cheese won’t congeal too much or anything en route.

    1. It won’t congeal but its best hot, so if it were me, I would wrap in foil, then in a dish towel to keep warm before putting it out for the pot luck. Hope you love it!

  3. Sabrina, you always come up with genius stuff! Such a smart cookie:) And on that note, your cookies always look delish too. Thanks for this recipe!

    1. Ditto! I love following you and your gorgeous recipes and photos. I may slightly have an addiction to your Instagram 🙂

  4. Here is the funny thing I was on your site looking for something else and I saw this and got totally distracted. I love Spinach and Artichoke dip. The combination on the garlic bread is a wonderful idea and I am going to use it.

  5. i would double the red pepper too. 🙂 I like a little kick! This is a fantastic alternative to dip.

    1. Thanks! I always use a lot of red pepper, but that’s kind of “going nuclear” because then none of the rest of my family can eat that portion!

  6. This recipe calls for two of my very favorite things. I love this new take on the traditional garlic bread. Yum!

  7. Your recipe looks beyond delicious and it’s a real plus that it’s so easy to make too. My whole family loves spinach, artichoke and cheese so I can’t wait to try this out on them.

  8. This Spinach dip looks so delicious. I am excited to try it on the weekend. I am sure it will be a big hit.

  9. What a fun recipe! And what a perfectly yummy appetizer – I love it and could likely eat the whole loaf 😉

  10. Yum. Spinach dip is the only appetizer I order. i’ve never made it at home because it never quite turns out the same as the restaurant but I love the idea of making it on top of bread! Will definitely test our your recipe.

  11. This is the best idea! It would definitely be good with some spicy marinara sauce. Gosh my bf would love this!

  12. Wow this looks mighty tasty! I would love to have something like this right now I’m starving and this would hit the spot! Yum

  13. I have always liked spinach and artichoke dip. I never thought of doing it like this, but I am now! this looks great!

  14. That is one of my most favorite things in the world to eat. I can’t wait to give this recipe a try. THANK YOU!
