Ingredients

  • 13.3 ounces Can of refrigerated french bread loaf
  • 1-2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Spinach (chopped)
  • 1 clove Minced Garlic
  • 4 ounces Cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/3 cup Light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chile Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Shredded mozzarella cheese, reserve half for the topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Unroll the french bread loaf and slice into 10 equal size slices. Flatten each slice into about a 3 in round circle by pressing between your hands and/or carefully pulling. This is easier to do if it's closer to room temperature. 

  3. Spray 10 regular muffin cups with non stick cooking spray and press your bread slices into the bottom and up sides of the muffin cup. Set aside.
  4. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add spinach and cook until slightly wilted; this should only take a few minutes. Then, add garlic and stir for another minute.
  5. Place cream cheese, sour cream, cooked spinach, and the rest of the ingredients (minus part of the mozzarella you have saved for the topping) into a medium bowl. Mix until well combined.
  6. With a cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop dip into each of the centers of bread bowls.
  7. Top evenly with remaining mozzarella.
  8. Bake for 15-17 minutes until they begin to turn a nice golden brown on the edges. Remove and let cool for 3-5 minutes.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Depending on how full you like these muffins, you may have enough filling for another roll of french bread. Increasing sour cream to 1/2 cup and adding 1/2 cup more of spinach would help stretch the mixture well.
