Mini Spinach Dip Bowls
Do you love spinach dip as much as I do? It's my go-to favorite bread dip and I love it cold, hot, store-bought or homemade. These easy little muffin cups are perfect for helping to portion control those of us with little restraint.
If I could, I'd eat an entire container of spinach dip and a loaf of bread in one go. Thankfully my husband usually helps to share the snack so it's not all going to my stomach, haha.
But these mini bread bowls are a favorite of mine to make around the holidays and have been for years. I first stumbled upon something similar when we were living in Tenessee and due to circumstances it was years before I could make them again. Thankfully they taste even better than I remembered!

Tips for making baked spinach artichoke dip
Making these spinach dip bowls is fairly easy and there's not much to worry about going wrong. Thankfully simple and straightforward.
I personally LOVE eating these muffins while they're still warm although I have been known to be impatient enough to burn my tongue by eating them too quickly. Note: Be more patient than I am.
These muffins also taste great cold or room temperature- yeah, they pretty much ALWAYS taste great. 😉
FAQ's about spinach dip
This homemade spinach dip is good for 3-5 days if stored properly in the fridge. That said, they're best enjoyed fresh!
Absolutely! After these have cooled completely store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months and then thaw before eating.
The proper moisture ratio is very important. Make sure that the spinach you add has been drained of any excess liquids as those could come back to haunt your tasty appetizers.
Yes! Simply take a little muffin cup and place it in the microwave on a safe plate for about 30 seconds to a minute (depending on your microwave) and then enjoy. You could also warm them in a 350 degree F oven for about 5minutes.
How to Make Mini Spinach Artichoke Dip Bread Bowls
Grease 2 muffin pans and then place a single Rhodes dinner roll into each cup. Let thaw and rise for 4 hours until doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
In a bowl, combine all of the filling ingredients, make sure to cook down the spinach if using fresh.
Press the centers of the risen bread dough and push it up along the sides to make little bowls.
Divide and spoon the filling into each muffin cup. You should be able to put between 1-2 tablespoons in each cup, but a little more or less won't hurt.
Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese over the top.
Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the edges are golden, the cheese has melted.
Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before eating warm, or let cool completely before chilling and serving later.
