A Bite-Size Appetizer

We are 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.

If you love the dip too, you will love today’s recipe of spinach dip bites which are little, warm mouthfuls of the dip in a mini crescent cup.

Plus, they’re simple, so what’s NOT to love?!

How to make spinach ARTICHOKE bites

We love that these tiny spinach cups are simple and quick!!

MIX. Begin by mixing the dip ingredients.

CUT. Set the dip ingredients aside and cut crescent dough into 2 inch squares and place in a greased mini muffin tin.

FILL + BAKE. Fill each cup with a spoonful of the dip mixture and sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes and let cook for a few minutes before removing from muffin tin. Serve warm and try not to eat a dozen in one sitting. 😉

Tips, Variations + SToring INfo

This recipe calls for 2 cups or 16 oz. of frozen spinach, so you will need to purchase 2 of the 10oz. boxes or 2 of the 12 oz. bags of frozen spinach in order to have enough for the 2 cups.

A pizza slicer is a quick and efficient way to cut the dough in this recipe.

If you don’t have a mini muffin tin simply cut the dough into 4 inch squares instead and add a few extra minutes to the baking time. You will yield 12 larger servings instead of 24 of the mini bites.

When removing the water from the spinach either squeeze it out with your hands, wrap it in a few layers of paper towels and then wring it out, or if you own a potato ricer you could use that as well to press out the extra liquid.

Variations:

Make them your own! There are lots of ways to personalize these yummy appetizers.

  • Add crumbled bacon, cooked sausage, or finely chopped cooked ham.
  • Add cooked mushrooms, sautéed onions, or roasted peppers.
  • Add some fresh herbs such as dill or basil.

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • 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.
  • 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 squares total.
  • 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.)
  • 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.
  • Bake at 375 for 15 – 17 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before moving from tray. ENJOY!

    Can you make these a day ahead, and then just cook the following day?

    1. Kristyn Merkley says:

      You sure could. I personally haven’t, but don’t see why not. The only thing, is the dough might get hard.

    Hi Luna! I’ve made tHese several times and they are so delicious! Can they be reheated in tHe mIcrowaVe or Oven? I am attending a baby shower? Thanks and love your website!

    1. Kristyn Merkley says:

      I would reheat them in the microwave. They’ll be a hit! Thank you so much for saying that!

    Technically this is the best of the spinach .

    1. Kristyn Merkley says:

      Well, thank you so much!!

  8. Lacia says:

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

    1. Kristyn Merkley says:

      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!

  9. Maggie says:

    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.

    1. Kristyn Merkley says:

      Yes, but you definitely could leave one out if it is too much 🙂

  10. Geri says:

    Looking forward to new recipes.
