Cheesy Baked Spinach Dip

  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 medium Yellow Onion; finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons Flour
  • 3 cups Milk
  • 1 packet Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dip mix
  • 6 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Swiss Cheese; shredded - preferably Gruyere – divided
  • 10 ounces Frozen Spinach; thawed and squeezed to remove excess liquid
  • Salt
  • 6 Pitas; cut into wedges
  • Crudité; to serve
step-by-step directions
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Over medium heat, melt Butter with Olive Oil in a sauce pot. Add Onions, season with Salt and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until soft and pale golden. Sprinkle in the Flour and stir until a dry paste forms.
  • Slowly whisk in Milk, trying to avoid lumps. Stir in the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dip mix and reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until thickened slightly.
  • Stir in the Cream Cheese and half of the Swiss Cheese until melted. Add the Spinach and remove from heat.
  • Divide mixture between two small oven safe baking dishes. (This can be prepared a few days in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer)
  • Place the baking dishes on a rimmed sheet pan and top with the remaining Swiss Cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly on top.
  • Meanwhile, bake the wedges of Pita for 10-15 minutes or until crispy.
  • Serve warm dip with Pita Chips and crudité.
