Cheesy Spinach Dip




Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons flour

1 1/2 cup milk

1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 pinch of nutmeg

2 cups frozen chopped spinach

1 Tablespoon Pro Seasoning

One loaf of rustic bread


Method of prep:


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat a 3 quart saucepan, over medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add garlic to the butter then sprinkle flour over the melted butter and cook to form a roux (paste). Add the milk and whisk over medium high heat. Bring milk to a boil while whisking, for 3 minutes. The sauce should thicken. Add the spinach and cheese and stir with a rubber spatula, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pan. Bring the mixture back up to a boil. Stir in the seasoning and nutmeg and remove from heat. Keep warm


Hollow out the center of a rustic loaf of bread (optional). Cube the bread that was removed. Toast the bread bowl and bread cubes at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. When the bread is toasted, carefully fill with the spinach dip. Top with more cheese and broil the top if desired.
