Spinach Dip Bites - so delicious and perfect for any party or get together. { lilluna.com } Crescent dough squares filled with lots of cheeses, garlic, spinach, and artichoke hearts.

Yes, I know… another Appetizer recipe. Don’t worry, it’s one of the last ones. πŸ˜‰ This next recipe I’m sharing is for Spinach Dip Bites. I had seen this recipe on Chocolate, Chocolate and MoreΒ and knew we had to give it a try ourselves.Β You see, I’m obsessed with Spinach and Artichoke Dip. It is one of my most favorite items to order at a restaurant. Served with warm tortilla chips, I could probably eat the whole thing with all of its cheesy goodness. Growing up I wasn’t a huge fan of Spinach (or Artichokes for that matter), but that has changed being an adult. It’s such a great combination of taste to me, and you can find that great mix in these bite-size and crunchy Spinach Dip Bites.

These bites are so warm and cheesy and would be great for your next get together. The recipe is simple too, but I warn that you won’t be able to just eat one of these bad boys! We didn’t really change anything from the original recipe because it was already perfect. We just added a little extra cheese, since you can never go wrong with more cheesy!! πŸ˜‰

How to make Spinach Dip Bites:

4.6 from 9 reviews
Spinach Dip Bites
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen spinach, chopped and thawed
  • 1 6 ounce jar Artichoke Hearts, drained and chopped
  • ½ tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 TB grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • ½ tsp. garlic salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 can seamless Crescent Dough
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a bowl, combine spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Blend in cream cheese and half of your mozzarella cheese. Season with Salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Using a rolling pin, lay out dough on a cutting board and lightly stretch to a 8 x 12 rectangle. Cut dough into 2 inch squares, so you have 24 squared total.
  4. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin and place a square in each slot, gently pushing down to create an indent. (you don't need to mold to the cup.)
  5. Scoop one teaspoon of your spinach mixture on top of each crescent square and gently push in, (bites will mold to your tin while baking). Spread the remaining mozzarella cheese over the tops of each cup.
  6. Bake at 375 for 15 - 17 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before moving from tray. ENJOY!

      You’re welcome, Liz! Hope you have a great New Year too!! XO

    My mouth is sure salivating over these! What a perfect appetizer for the Super Bowl!

      Lil' Luna

      Definitely!! They’ll be gone in no time at a Super Bowl party.

    Gail smith

    Yummy .. but can I leave out the artichoke and put more spinach?

      Lil' Luna

      Of course!! πŸ˜€

      Cheryl

      I have made these, and I think it would be great with just spinach too. As my other comment said, adding a pinch of cayenne pepper would add a bit of a bite to them, as well.

    Jodi

    I made these, but had to use Pillsbury gluten free pie crust. They still turned out delicious – even for those who tried it and are not celiac (gluten free).

    Sharon Dehm

    I haven tried anything yet but I will short they look so easy to make all recipes I tu for sharing

    Yvonne Emery

    Can these be frozen?
    thanks
    Yvonne

    Jessica

    will these still be good if refrigerated over night?

    Cheryl

    Made these. Everybody loved them! Would add a pinch of cayenne pepper to add a bit of a bite to them. But even without it, delicious!!!!

      Lil' Luna

      I think cayenne pepper would be great addition. Will have to try that next time. πŸ˜‰

    Leezee

    Can you provide a tip on how to cut the dough in squares?

      Lil' Luna

      I would cut it while it’s still cold and with a plastic knife. πŸ˜‰

        Mary Graff

        Try cutting with a pizza wheel!

    Pam

    I’ve never purchased artichoke hearts before…is this one 6 oz jar or is at 16 oz jar? The way it’s printed I can’t tell. I want too make these for an 80th birthday party for my mom next weekend. Thanks so much!

    Hannah

    I’m going to make these for my sisters baby shower tomorrow! do you think it would work out if I made the spinach mixture today and let it sit over night?

    gail chant

    Can these be frozen?
    thanks

    Sheri Russell

    Can I make these ahead of time and heat when ready to serve

    Michelle

    These are so cute and delicious looking! A couple questions….:) Could I make these with fresh spinach and also could I use Pillsbury Flaky Rolls as the base as opposed to the Crescent Rolls? Just trying to use ingredients I have on hand πŸ™‚

    Thanks!!

    Jeanette

    Hi. Can the spinach dip bites be made ahead and frozen or refrigerated? If so, would you bake them and then freeze them? How would you warm them if this is possible?

    Thanks, much.

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried freezing them, so I’m not sure how they’d turn out. But, if you did, you’d probably have to make them first, since you don’t want to fill them with just the crescent dough. You would maybe stick them in a warm oven, since it would have already been baked and leave just until warm. If you try freezing them, let me know how they turn out:) I’d love to know and let others know!

    Kate

    Has anyone tried making ahead and freezing??
    Also, could I use fresh spinach leaves instead of frozen? Just trying to use what I have on hand.
    Thanks!

    Karen

    Going to make these but try using wonton wrappers. Sound so good!πŸ˜€

      Lil' Luna

      That would be yum!! Let me know what you think πŸ™‚ Thank you!!

    Angela Butson

    I cant wait to try for Easter Sunday!

    How many does it feed?

    Amira Raslan

    Can you use another type of dough? I don’t think we have that here

      Lil' Luna

      I am sure you can, though I haven’t tried. Maybe possibly a pizza dough or dough used for rolls? I hope you find something that works πŸ™‚

    Chelsea

    Can you make these a day ahead?

    Christine gregory

    I live in Australia and don’t know what crescent dough is? Is it like a pitza dough or a plain pastry? Thanks. Chris

    Dennis Womack

    I am enjoying looking at your recipes

    Aria

    Its nice article, Thanks for this post ,spinach dip bites looks quite healthy and tasty!!!! I’ll definitely try to make this, Thanks for sharing!!!

    Maria

    Would I have to bake dough first by itself and then again with the mixture??

    Susanna Cazar

    Love your recipes

    Jan

    For your spinach bites is one package of frozen spinach equal to 2 cups or do I need to purchase 2 packages? Thanks.

      Kristyn Merkley

      It just depends on the size of the bag. I think the bag I had did equal or was close to.

    Madison

    In the video, a 12 count muffin tin is used. However the recipe says to use a 24 count mini muffin tin.

      Kristyn Merkley

      If you want bigger ones, you could use the 12 count or 24 count, for mini. Hope that helps πŸ™‚

    Kathleen Pflugfelder

    Have tried in the past and really enjoyed them

    Geri

    Looking forward to new recipes.

    Maggie

    Made the Spinach Dip Bites today. Very good! but I have a question. Was there supposed to have minced garlic AND garlic salt? Thank you.

    Lacia

    Can you prep these the day before and stick them in the refrigerator?

      Kristyn Merkley

      They should be good! I personally haven’t done that, but I don’t see why not. Though, you will probably need to fix the dough, like pull it up on the sides. They start to sink down. Hope that helps!
