Taryn's Spinach Dip

A few weeks ago, my girl Taryn, posted this awesome recipe for homemade spinach dip. On Christmas eve, my mom always prepares a lunch of snack-y type foods for their staff before closing for the holidays. This year, since we were all home by then, we joined in. I decided to make this dip as my contribution. It is so yummy. Thanks Taryn!

Creamy Spinach Dip - From Taryn

2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded, divided
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 (8-ounce) blocks cream cheese, softened
1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
1 loaf of pumpernickel bread
**Next time, I will also add in one jar of chopped artichoke hearts

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Combine 1 1/2 cups mozzarella, sour cream, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, and next 5 ingredients (through spinach) in a large bowl; stir until well blended.

3. Spoon mixture into a 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan.

4. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.

5. Serve in a pumpernickel bread bowl, with cubes of bread for dipping.
