8ozHavarti cheesefreshly grated
1/4cupfreshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/8tspred pepper flakesoptional
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Thaw spinach as desired. I heated mine using the microwave but you can also leave in the fridge overnight to defrost. Easy peasy!
Squeeze frozen chopped spinach to remove excess moisture then combine with creamed spinach.
Bring an 8-12 inch cast iron skillet to medium-high heat, then sauté onion in 1 TBSP butter or oil, adding minced garlic towards the end to prevent burning.
Add the shrimp and sauté for a few additional minutes until the shrimp turn opaque.
Season with salt and reduce heat to lowest setting.
Add your spinach and cheeses (including cream cheese) and mix well.
Re-season to taste if desired.
Top with extra cheese if desired (a little extra cheese is always welcome around here!) then add a pinch of red pepper flakes.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until dip is hot and bubbly.
Serve with an assortment of veggies, tortilla chips, and/or pita wedges for dipping.
No cast iron skillet? No problem! This dip can be cooked in your favorite pot or pan then transferred to a baking dish to reach bubbly melty perfection. Enjoy!Take the cheese-factor to the next level by sprinkling some freshly grated cheese on top of the dip before baking. You can use extra Havarti, Mozzarella, Gouda, Gruyere, or pretty much any easy-melt cheese that floats your boat!Serve with sliced veggies, tortilla chips, and/or pita wedges for dipping!Nutrition Facts below are estimated using an online recipe nutrition calculator.
