  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Bake bread as directed on can. Cool.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, increase oven temperature to 400°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
  • 3
    In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 9 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crispy. Drain on paper towels; set aside. Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet and 2 tablespoons drippings in small bowl.
  • 4
    Heat skillet with bacon drippings over medium heat. Cook garlic in skillet 30 to 60 seconds, stirring constantly, until fragrant. Gradually add spinach. Stir just until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat; cool. Squeeze spinach to remove any excess liquid; transfer to cutting board. Chop spinach finely.
  • 5
    In medium bowl, mix spinach, bacon, cream cheese, feta cheese, mayonnaise, black pepper and pepper flakes. Spread evenly in pie plate.
  • 6
    Add bread crumbs to reserved 2 tablespoons bacon drippings; stir to coat. Sprinkle over top of spinach mixture. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly around edges. Slice French bread; serve with hot dip.

  • Feta cheese is a salty, crumbly cheese, often sold in blocks submerged in a briny solution. You can also find it precrumbled.

Expert Tips

  • Cooked spinach can release a lot of liquid which, if combined with the dip, could make it too loose. Squeezing some of the liquid out of the spinach will ensure a nice, spreadable consistency.
