I mean what is better than a creamy cheesy spinach and artichoke dip in a bread bowl? It is literally all my favorite components in one delicious appetizer! It makes for a fabulous app for friends to gather around and enjoy. You can make it a pull-apart bread bowl or use some tortilla chips and veggies to dip. You cannot go wrong with either really!
What is awesome about this spinach artichoke bread bowl recipe is that is is so easy to put together but so so good. You just need a few ingredients like spinach, marinated artichoke hearts, cheeses, sour cream, some seasonings, and a round bread. Just a few steps later, you will successfully enjoy a hot creamy and tangy appetizer.
To keep with the idea of not wasting anything; I love to use the innards of the bread bowl to make croutons that can be used for dipping. To flavor the croutons and the inside of the bread bowl, I used Veggie Season’s Parmesan Herb, Roasted Garlic Butter, and Spicy Herb. These two all-natural seasonings are fantastic to amp up the flavor in this dish. It all goes together very well and offers the croutons great taste just on their own!
I really have been enjoying Veggie Season’s Blends because not only are they packed with flavor but they are also Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and vegetarian.

I promise you will enjoy it and it will take the flavor profile of your dishes to the next level just like this one!
