Panko-Crusted Spinach Dip

A few years back Cara Eisenpress and Phoebe Lapine, authors of In the Small Kitchen, decided to have a party to celebrate the success of their blog, Big Girls Small Kitchen. Instead of hosting a sit-down, multi-course affair, they threw a dip party with a spread of scoopables like chipotle hummus, sweet pea dip, caramelized onion dip all served up with plenty of chips.

Represented on the graze-worthy buffet was this Panko-Crusted Spinach Dip, a gooey, cheesy crowdpleaser that comes together in barely any time at all. It's a super simple blend of frozen spinach, mayo, sour cream, and cream cheese with a little bit of garlic and chili flakes to give it a kick. Topped with crunchy panko and Parmesan and baked until bubbling, it's the sort of dip that could easily spoil more than a few appetites.

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of In the Small Kitchen to give away this week.
