Hot Spinach Dip

This is the hot, cheesy dip that I prepared for a couple of the lunches after the weeding, last summer. It is my version of a hot dip we enjoyed at Montana's restaurant. It is again an "out of my head" recipe and we like to serve it with Nan bread that has been covered with garlic butter and warmed in the oven.

2 tbsp. butter

1 med. onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic

2 -2 1/2 cups washed chopped spinach

1 cup (250 g.) cream cheese

1 1/2 cup Old Cheddar cheese

1/2 tsp. hot pepper flakes


In small skillet (I use a small cast iron frying pan), melt butter, add onion and garlic and cook till soft. Add spinach and cook till wilted. Add cream cheese, cheddar cheese and hot pepper flakes. Stir to mix thoroughly. Transfer mixture to small casserole pan or if using cast iron frying pan, leave it as is and place under broiler to heat till bubbly and .

Serve hot with crackers or hot Nan bread.
