Creamy Swiss Spinach Dip

So afterschool today we had a party to reveal our "secret pals". All year we've had secret pals from the PTO and they deliver little presents to the teachers through out the year. It's a neat little program. Anyways, today was the day we found out who our pals were and we all enjoyed a little potluck. I made a Creamy Swiss Spinach Dip, which got rave reviews! This is the second time I've made it and everyone just loves it.

From my Reader's Digest Taste of Home 5 Ingredient Cookbook
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 package (9 ounces) frozen creamed spinach, thawed
  • 2 cups diced Swiss cheese
  • 2 unsliced round loaves (1 pound each) Italian or French bread
In a small microwave safe mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and garlic powder until smooth. Stir in spinach and swiss cheese. Cover and microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until cheese melted, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cut a 4-in. circle in the center of one loaf of bread. Remove bread, leaving 1 in. at the bottom of loaf. Cut removed bread and the second loaf into 1-1/2 in. cubes. Spoon hot spinach dip into bread shell. Serve with bread cubes.

Yield: 3 1/2 cups

Personally, I just put it in a bowl, I'm not talented enough to cut a bread bowl!
