The idea for this recipe is from my healthified version of spinach artichoke dip. But no artichokes. And only Swiss cheese. And some onions for flavor. All in all pretty decent for ya (especially if you decide to use veggies to dip.)
And everrrr so YUMMY! Michael and I both attacked this baby. I mean, really, just look at that top layer of cheesy goodness. And it's chock full of spinach and just the right amount of flavor via the onions (which count as vegetables, right?). If you make a big batch of this and serve it, not one person will believe it's anything less than deliciously bad for them. And if you don't wanna tell 'em, that's fine with me. Our little secret ;).
Spinach, Onion, and Swiss Dip
Author: Kayle, "The Cooking Actress"
Serves 3-4 (recipe can be easily doubled)
- 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise (feel free to use whatever healthy/light variety you prefer)
- 3 oz. Swiss cheese + 1 oz. to top
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray (I used a 500 mL dish).
- Lightly coat a small cast iron (or whatever kind you like) skillet with olive oil. Heat over medium heat and add onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned (for a couple minutes). Transfer to a heatproof bowl.
- Add drained spinach to the onion and stir in mayonnaise.
- Crumble in 3 oz. Swiss cheese and mix with the other ingredients.
- Spoon into prepared dish and top with remaining 1 oz. Swiss.
- Bake 15 minutes, until heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Serve! Use chips, veggies, bread, etc. for dipping.
