Our winters here are long and very cold, but we try to embrace the season by enjoying all it has to offer. This means that we brave sub zero temps and hit the ski hill, we strap on skates to go skating, put on our snowshoes and take long winter walks…so basically we aren’t afraid of the cold! A little known secret is that I do in fact adore our Canadian winters (as long as there is plenty of snow then I’m happy)!
One of the things I love most about our cold winter activities is that they bring people together. I mean what better fun than to spend the day tobogganing with family and friends, then all getting together at someones home for hot chocolate and warm winter eats? It’s the best. There is just nothing like filling your belly with warm winter drinks and home made, hearty food after a cold and wintery day.
For occasions like this, I like to have some easy and delicious recipes at my finger tips…ones that can be prepared either ahead of time, or in just a few minutes. And this Goat Cheese Spinach Dip is a perfect dip for such an occasion!
I like to prepare this dip ahead of time, and have it ready to go as soon as we come inside. Serve it bubbling hot with loads of crusty bread, and your favourite glass of red wine…or hot chocolate for the kids!
My favourite thing about this dip is that it can be baked and served right in a bread bowl. You can use it as a bowl for dipping, then eventually eat the bowl! Or you can cut it width-wise into strips and serve it that way.
It’s delicious no matter how it’s served…it’s creamy and tangy from the sour cream and goat cheese, and full of flavour from the spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic and crumbled bacon. Yes, did I forget to mention that this dip has bacon? Bacon makes everything delicious.
This Goat Cheese Spinach Dip is a perfect appetizer for any time of year…it’s great for winter gatherings with friends and it would be perfect for holiday entertaining! It’s very easy to make and only takes a few minutes to assemble. Your guests will love it.
