Approx 300 g of thawed frozen spinach
1 tbs spoon butter
250 g grated cheddar cheese
200g cream cheese
150ml soured cream
Approx 150g mozzarella ball
Tin of artichokes
Drain artichokes and chop roughly
Squeeze water from spinach, then chop roughly. Put to one side with chopped artichokes
Dice onion and gently fry in butter on low-medium heat until tender
Add the cheddar, cream cheese and soured cream to the onions. Stir on low-medium heat until melted.
Add chopped mozzarella and melt, then add spinach and artichokes.
Add quite a bit of Tabasco – it can take a lot. Keep adding to taste and season if necessary
Transfer mixture to oven proof dish
Sprinkle more cheddar if you wish – you can never have too much – and top with bread crumbs
Cook in oven – approx. 170 degrees centigrade for 15-20 minutes or until golden and bubbling.
Serve with pitta – get cheesy and enjoy!
Always use frozen spinach. Fresh just isn’t as good.
You can make the mix in advance and store in an oven proof dish in the fridge until guests arrive. Then simply pop in the oven.
