  • 1
    Soak both packages of frozen spinach in warm water to defrost.
  • 2
    Drain spinach well. Ring out spinach like a wet towel to squeeze out excess juice, with hands.
  • 3
    Place spinach in a large bowl and mix in sour cream, onion soup packet, mayo, green onion and water chestnuts. You may add as much mayo and/or sour cream to satisfy your taste. Mix well.
  • 4
    Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least 2-4 hrs)
  • 5
    Hollow out a large, round loaf of Hawaiian Bread (or Sourdough), leaving at least a 2 inch wall. Place bread bowl on tray and pour in the dip. (Place extra bread pieces around spinach bowl for easy to get, bite sized pieces to dip with.)
  • 6
    Use another loaf of bread to tear more pieces with and place around bowl. (Try out different kinds of breads. My favorites are the sweet Hawaiian rolls and sourdough.)
  • 7
    Serve & enjoy!

More About This Recipe

  • Because the only thing better than spinach dip is spinach dip in an edible bowl. We don’t know who first invented spinach dip, but man are we glad they did. Ditto with whoever invented the bread bowl. We love dip. We love bread. It’s a match made in appetizer heaven and it’s just that simple. Serve in a loaf of sourdough for a classic pairing, or go with a loaf of Hawaiian bread for a sweeter flavor. But no matter what bread you serve this in, you won’t have a crumb left over.
