It's official. I actually know how to cook. This point was confirmed for me last month when I started perfecting the art of going "off road" with my recipes. I used to be the type that stuck exactly to the recipe because I was scared of messing it up. Now I just throw in random ingredients that I think will work and I've been impressed with the results.
I made spinach dip for the super bowl party (to compliment the burrito bar) and I got a lot of compliments on it, so it must have been good. I started by finding hot spinach dip recipes online then I started throwing in things I had in my fridge that would go well with it.
10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and dried out
1/2 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup light mayo
1/3 cup pecorino romano
2 laughing cow swiss cheese wedges, chopped & melted
1 can of cream of broccoli condensed soup
8 green onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl.
Place in an oven safe dish and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Make sure cheese is melted and serve with pretzel things.
