The only thing better than creamy, cheesy spinach dip is creamy, cheesy spinach dip served inside a warm loaf of French bread!

Ingredients

1
can Pillsbury™ refrigerated crusty French loaf
1
tablespoon butter, melted
1
box (9 oz) Green Giant™ frozen chopped spinach
1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2
cup plus 2 tablespoons shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4
cup mayonnaise
1/2
cup chopped red bell pepper
1
clove garlic, finely chopped

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Place French bread dough, seam side down, on cookie sheet. Brush dough with melted butter.
  • 2 Bake 17 to 19 minutes or until light golden brown. Carefully hollow out center of loaf by using bread knife to cut out V-shape lengthwise down center of loaf to within 1/2 inch of bottom. (Discard or bake* bread cutout scraps.)
  • 3 Meanwhile, cook spinach as directed on box. Drain well; squeeze with paper towel to get out as much liquid as possible. In medium bowl, stir together cooked and drained spinach, cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the mayonnaise, bell pepper and garlic until well blended. Spoon spinach mixture into hollowed-out French bread loaf.
  • 4 Bake 15 minutes; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese. Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until spinach filling is hot and bread is deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Cut into slices to serve.

Expert Tips

*If desired, bake bread cutout scraps. Place on same cookie sheet as stuffed loaf, and bake until bread scraps are deep golden brown.
