Baby showers are a time for fun, laughter and celebration…and good food! The key for hostessing is finding the right recipes. Here is a great recipe you can make that not only tastes great, it’s extremely easy to make.
What you need:
- 2 packages of frozen chopped spinach thawed to room temperature
- 2 packages of cream cheese, thawed to room temperature
- 1 packet of powdered ranch mix (you’ll only use about 1/2 pack)
- 1 container of sour cream
- 2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 1 loaf shepherd’s bread
- 1 can of water chestnuts (optional)
Mix the spinach and cream cheese together in a large mixing bowl until you have a creamy mixture, and no lumps. (This is much easier to do if the cream cheese is soft.)
Add sour cream and mayonnaise to the mixture. Add ranch mix, but only start off adding about 1/4 of the packet. You can add more or less depending on your liking. Add water chestnuts if desired. Make sure all ingredients are mixed well and if you think you need to add more of anything, do so. (This is a continued tasting to get the desired taste.)
Cover the spinach mixture and put in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Cut the top of the shepherd’s bread into a circle and remove the inside of the bread. This will be the “bowl” for dip. Cut the bread you removed into pieces for the guests to use for dipping. Pour the spinach dip into the shepherd’s bread bowl, and voila! You’ve got a great baby shower recipe that tastes great and easy to make!
Some tips :
- You can make this easy recipe a day in advance so the day of the baby shower runs a little smoother.
- You may want to get some crackers also for dipping, because I’ve found that the inside of the bread is not enough for serving. Trisquit and Wheat Thins are great choices.
- Hawaiian King Rolls are also great for dipping into the spinach dip.
Your guests will love this easy baby shower recipe, and you’ll be thankful you didn’t spend all day making it!
