Spinach Dip

1  10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed

1 cup mayonnaise

1 3 ounce package cream cheese

1 small onion, peeled and minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon paprika

a Davis sized handful of 4-cheese Mexican cheese – his personal addition to the recipe

1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs

2 tablespoons melted butter

Cook spinach in a small amount of water.  Bring to a boil and cook to desired tenderness. Drain thoroughly and press out the remaining liquid. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  With a mixer, beat spinach, mayonnaise, cream cheese, onion, garlic cheeses, and seasonings.  Spread in a buttered pie pan.  Sprinkle top with Panko and drizzle on the melted butter.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes or until top is lightly browned and bubbly in the center.

We enjoyed the spinach dip at our Game Day Kickoff dinner.

I must admit I do enjoy watching college football.  I think it started with watching The Ohio State University Marching Band  and the baton twirlers when I was young.  Don’t forget the tuba dotting the I.

Of course now I’m a Georgia Bulldog fan.  My alma mater.

UGA (pronounced UGGA)  always brings me a smile.

BTW (pronounced… by the way) when I was counting my dishes, I forgot this set!  Can you believe it? I even have a football helmet chip and dip bowl.  Such a versatile piece (pronounced…NOT VERSATILE AT ALL.)

I’m also a Berry College football fan.  We are heading out to Maryville to see their opening game.  Olivia’s boyfriend is on the team.  Go Vikings!
