I LOVE hot, cheesy spinach dip.

I do not love swiss chard.

That said, we’re moving and trying to empty out our freezer and cabinets, and we’ve had a bag of frozen swiss chard sitting in the freezer for about a hundred years now.  I could have sautéed it or put it in a stir fry, but all I saw with that was a night of fighting my three year old to get him to eat it.

But then I saw the spinach and began to wonder… could I turn that sad, lonely bag of chard into something we’d all love?

Ummmmmmmm…. yes. Yes, I could.

And you can too.

Step by step method

  • 1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut a corner off each bag of frozen green. Squeeze each bag of greens so the liquid flows out, but not the greens. Keep squeezing until you can't get any more of the liquid to release. Place the green into an oven-safe baking dish (in my photos it's a 9" round by 3.5" deep stoneware casserole dish).

  • 2. Place the mayonnaise and sour cream into the greens and mix until combined. Add in the garlic powder, ground pepper, and parmesan cheese; mix until well combined. Stir in the cream cheese and 3 cups of the cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 10 minutes (to melt the cream cheese).

  • 3. Remove from oven and stir, making sure the cream cheese is fully melted and all ingredients are combined.

  • 4. Top with remaining cup of cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for another 15 minutes or until dip is bubbly and top is golden brown.

Tips & variations

  • Top with crisp pieces of bacon for a little extra yum!
