Hot Spinach Dip

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for baking dish
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pounds spinach, cleaned, trimmed, and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dashes hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • Baguette slices, breadsticks, or crackers, for serving

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a Dutch oven or large pot, heat oil over medium. Add onion and garlic; cook until lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes.

Add spinach in two additions, letting the first batch wilt before adding the next; cook until completely wilted, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a colander; drain, pressing to release all excess liquid.

In the same pot, warm milk over high heat. Whisk in cream cheese until melted, about 3 minutes. Add spinach, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and 1/4 cup mozzarella; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a lightly oiled 8 inchs shallow baking dish; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella.

Bake until bubbly and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve hot with accompaniments, as desired.
