A creamy spinach and artichoke spread makes the perfect topping for a patty melt!
I spent way too much time pigging out on spinach and artichoke dip when I was younger. It’s all TGI Friday’s fault. As soon as they opened a location close to home it became a regular hang out for me and my friends. We couldn’t afford much beyond a drink and appetizers, namely their spinach and artichoke dip! Oh my gosh, was that good! It was the perfect blend of cheese and cream with chunks of artichokes waiting to be devoured. I think it got to the point where we stopped sharing appetizers and each ordered our own. We had it bad.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had that dip at the restaruant. I’ve purchased the frozen variety from my grocery story, but it’s just not the same. So sad. The only thing left for me to do is to make my own! Which is exactly what I do. This time however, I came up with the most ingenious way to actually have spinach and artichoke dip for dinner and not feel guilty about it! I used it as a topping for a patty melt! Haha. I feel like I’m cheating some sort of system with this sandwich! If you put a dip ON your food, then it doesn’t count as a dip anymore, it becomes a condiment!
The hot patty melts the spinach and artichoke dip perfectly. It almost becomes a creamy sauce. This is the first time I grilled my patty melt. I used a grill pan, but you could easily use an outdoor grill. Or stick to the traditional method use a skillet. This patty melt is super easy and delicious! If you love spinach and artichoke dip as much as I do, then this patty melt is for YOU! Please note, I cannot be blamed for the patty melt addiction that will ensue.
I’ll be sharing this recipe at Food Fanatic too!
