The “Extra Special” Knorr Spinach Dip Recipe: A Party Favorite with a Secret Twist

Hey everyone, party season is upon us and I’m gearing up with all the delicious dips! As a huge fan of easy-to-make crowd-pleasers (like my beloved Million Dollar Dip!), I sometimes love revisiting classic recipes like this Knorr Spinach Dip.

We all know it: the cold, creamy spinach dip nestled in a fluffy bread bowl, surrounded by fresh veggies. It’s a party staple, and let’s be honest, when someone offers to bring a dip, this is what they’re usually bringing.

The Knorr Twist with a Secret Ingredient

Now, the original Knorr Spinach Dip, made with that handy packet of seasoning mix, has been a hit at gatherings for years. But over time, I’ve added some special touches to make it even better. And guess what? I’m finally sharing my secret ingredient!

Here’s the thing: a dash of nutmeg adds a certain “je ne sais quoi” to this spinach dip. Don’t skip it! Trust me, one bite and you’ll understand.

It’s All About the Tweaks

I’m not claiming this as my own creation – it’s definitely inspired by the original Knorr recipe. But with my tips and tweaks, I believe it’s the best spinach dip you’ll ever have.

Easy as Can Be: Ingredients and Tips

This recipe is incredibly simple, and the ingredients are readily available:

  • Sour Cream: Regular is great, but feel free to lighten things up with low-fat. It won’t affect the flavor much.
  • Mayonnaise: Regular mayo adds a wonderful creaminess, but you can use olive-oil based or low-fat versions for a lighter option.
  • Water Chestnuts: Don’t be intimidated by the texture! Finely chopped, they add a delightful crunch. Trust me, they’re worth including.
  • Scallions: These provide a fresh, oniony bite with a pop of green color. Chopped chives work too, if scallions aren’t available.
  • Frozen Chopped Spinach: Fresh spinach is an option, but frozen is so much easier. Just thaw, drain, and stir it right in!
  • Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix: The star of the show!
  • Nutmeg: My secret weapon for an extra flavor boost.
  • Worcestershire Sauce: A splash adds a touch of umami magic.
  • Salt and Pepper: To taste, of course. The Knorr mix is already flavorful, so go easy.

Pro-Tips for the Perfect Dip

  • Make it Ahead: The flavors meld beautifully when the dip chills in the fridge for a few hours.
  • Squeeze Out the Moisture: Use a clean kitchen towel to wring out any excess water from the spinach. A watery dip is no fun!
  • Fresh Spinach Option: If you must use fresh spinach, start with a pound of baby spinach. Steam it until wilted, then wring it out thoroughly.

Serving and Storage:

Super easy to make! Just combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and chill until serving. Bread bowl or not, it’s completely up to you.

This dip will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. However, freezing is not recommended.

So there you have it! My take on the classic Knorr Spinach Dip, with a secret ingredient that will take your party dip game to the next level. Enjoy!
