I am a big foodie (of course, hence the blog) and Italian foods are probably my all-time favorite category. This cheese dip appetizer recipe is made of three cheeses and a great appetizer for any event or party.
This Tuscan Cheese Dip is ready in literally MINUTES and SO GOOD that you better make more than you think you need, because people just love it! To make the dip, just combine most of the ingredients into any oven safe baking dish. Cook until they are melted, and then add the extra mozzarella cheese on top. Finish it off in the oven and serve once the top layer of cheese is starting to brown.
This is my favorite brand of sun-dried tomatoes to use. They come packed in oil and in thin strips, so they just need a quick chop. Use as much or little of the sundried tomatoes and spinach as you prefer! The frozen spinach is deceiving when packed and frozen, so add gradually. No need to defrost and drain the spinach, the oven will do this for you rather quickly and save you time!
I make cheese dips a LOT for friends and family. They are SO good that if I don’t make one, there is a mutiny. People literally barter for me to make one. This dip is perfect for Italian dinners and game day. The flavors of this cheese treasure are based on the incredibly popular Olive Garden Copycat Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo dish on this site. It is consistently in the top few recipes every day and for good reason! These flavors go SO well together, so of course they needed to be a cheese dip.
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Combine all of the cheese dip ingredients in an oven safe dish for serving except for 1/2 cup of the mozzarella (you will use it to top the dip later). You do not need to mix them up yet nor thaw the spinach.
- Bake the cheese dip until the cheese is melted, stirring occassionally.
- Once melted, add the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese across the top. Continue baking until the top layer of cheese is melted and starting to brown. Want more browning? Pop it under a broiler instead of baking.
- Serve immediately with dunkers like chips or crostini.
