This 4-ingredient French Onion Spinach Dip recipe comes together in about 5 minutes and is large enough to serve a crowd! An easy party dip recipe that is good cold or hot.
I’m pretty sure dips are my love language. I’ve yet to meet a dip I didn’t like and spinach dip is one of my favorites!
This dip is a little different from the standard spinach dip most people are used to. This one has a French Onion twist thanks for a dry soup packet.
Bonus points because this is a party appetizer that is good hot or cold!
How to Make French Onion Spinach Dip
When a recipe only has 4 ingredients, you know the directions are going to be just as short. This is an easy one, so I’ll get right to the point for you.
Cream Cheese: You’re going to need the full, 8 ounce block. Just make sure it’s softened before you go to mix the ingredients so it blends better. Especially if you’re going to serve it cold.
Spinach: I always use a box of frozen spinach. It comes in a 10 ounce block. About an hour or two before I make the recipe, I open the box of frozen spinach and place it in a colander in the sink to thaw. When it’s completely thawed, use your hands to squeeze out any extra water. Frozen spinach really holds a lot of extra water so make sure you squeeze it out so your dip isn’t watery.
Sour Cream: You can use full fat, reduced fat or fat free sour cream. Any of them will work for this recipe.
French Onion Soup Mix: I usually use the store brand French Onion Soup mix. Just one packet, dry for this recipe.
Directions to Make Spinach Dip:
It’s really as simple as mixing all your ingredients in a large bowl until they’re well combined.
You can either serve this dip cold or heat it up in a 350 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes until it’s hot the whole way through.
I like to take a round loaf of bread and hollow out the center, fill it with dip and serve it that way. If you remove the center of the bread carefully enough, you can cube up the bread as your dippers too!
If you do serve it this way and want to heat it through, just cover the outside of the bread loaf with foil so it doesn’t get hard and dried out.
