  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 (10-ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 (8-ounce) container mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup mayo

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté 2 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 more minute.

  • Add onion/spinach mixture to bowl along with both cheeses, red pepper flakes, thyme, paprika, and dry mustard. Fold everything together.
  • Spoon into a 1-quart baking dish, sprinkle with Panko crumbs, and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Combine butter and olive oil in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until butter is melted.
  • Brush both sides of bread slices with butter mixture, place on a baking sheet, and bake 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly toasted.
  • Serve dip warm with bread slices.
