The mix of panko, spinach and artichokes make this one tasty recipe. And the addition of white beans is unusual – but tasty. This is great to serve for the big game, but I plan on making this one for every party!
I used 15 oz can of beans and a 14 oz can of artichokes, and made sure to drain both of them.
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
1 can(s) artichoke hearts, canned
1 can(s) white beans
2 clove garlic, minced
1 c cream cheese
2 c asiago cheese, grated
3/4 c sour cream
1/2 c mayonnaise (use the good stuff!)
1 tsp lemon rind, grated
1 pinch salt and pepper
3 Tbsp panko bread crumbs
1. Start by defrosting and straining the spinach by squeezing as much of the water out of the spinach. Combine the drained spinach with the grated cheese and chopped artichoke hearts.
2. Place the beans, drained spinach and artichoke hearts in a food processor and pulse together until well combined, don’t over mix! Then mix with the remaining ingredients except for the panko bread crumbs. Lightly grease or spray a 2 quart baking dish then fold in the mixture. Top with panko bread crumbs and bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven uncovered for 25 minutes.
3. Serve immediately with pita chips, crackers or crostini, enjoy!! 🙂
