Hello there! How has winter been treating you? Are you bombarded with snow? Or do you live somewhere warm and sunny? If so, can I come live with you 😉 ? Just kiddin’ (but kinda not kiddin’)….hehehe!
We have been having snow around here like crazy. Just last week we had about 2 feet of snow (in two days) with super high winds. So, suffice to say, I’ve been spending a little more time inside making all things comforting, like this fresh spinach artichoke dip.
When hubby tasted, his reaction was ‘Yeah, so, that’s going in rotation.’ Woo hoo!

Absolutely! Just thaw and drain of excess moisture before using.
More Tips and Variations
If you rather not use biscuits, simply place the dip in an oven safe dish and warm through. Serve with chips.
A little squeeze of lemon is nice with this dip drizzled over top.
If you don’t have artichokes packed in water and only those packed in oil, no worries! Just give ’em a little rinse/drain under water before using.
After the buns were baked and the dip heated through, I wanted to brown that cheddar cheese a bit. I got a little creative and folded over a piece of aluminum foil and cut a half moon so it would be roughly the same circumference as the dip. It’s not exactly Martha Stewart level quality here, but gets the job done. I wanted to brown the cheese a little, but not burn the buns. Like this…
