To make the spinach artichoke dip sold at TGI Friday's, you must mix 1/2 cup of sour cream, 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of cubed mozzarella cheese and 1 or 2 teaspoons of minced garlic in a large bowl. Next, add a full package of spinach and a chopped 14-ounce can of artichoke hearts and mix thoroughly. Bake in a shallow casserole dish for 15-20 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
If you are pressed for time, the dip can also be heated in a microwave for 3-5 minutes or until its constituent parts have melted into one another. The estimated serving size is six adults when using the measurements listed in the recipe. The recipe suggests using frozen spinach and artichoke hearts after properly thawing and squeezing the juice out of the vegetables before baking.
The TGI Friday's spinach and artichoke cheese dip is also served as a frozen product and is available in many grocery stores around the country. The dip comes fully mixed and assembled, so the only preparation necessary is oven heating or microwaving. The manufacturer suggests using a food thermometer to ensure that the dip is at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit before consumption.
