Does anyone else enjoy eating appetizers as meals? I could make a bunch of appetizers and make one big meal out of it. This Spinach Artichoke Pull-Apart Bread takes two of my favorite appetizers and makes them into one (Spinach Artichoke Dip and Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread)! It turns out mixing the two together makes the most perfect appetizer. You have your dip and bread in one! This really is a great appetizer for parties as it has always gone over well with our family and guests. So if you are looking for something fun and that is extra tasty, then this Spinach Artichoke Pull-Apart Bread is just what you need!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
This easy appetizer is made of spinach artichoke dip, a loaf of bread and lots of melty cheese. The bread is cut criss-cross so that you can pull out little squares covered in spinach artichoke dip and cheese.
You'll want a firmer, crustier bread for this. We use a sourdough loaf, but you can use any of your favorite round or oval shaped breads as long as they are crustier and sturdier to hold up to all the slicing and stuffing.
We have not used fresh in this recipe as we need it already cooked. You can use it if you like but you will want to cook it down first before adding it to the mixture.
If it's just my family, I will just let everyone pull off their pieces onto their own plates. However, when serving to guests, I will put some forks and plates out so they can use their forks to pull off their pieces onto their individual plates.
If you do not like artichokes it is perfectly fine if you leave them out.
If you happen to have any leftovers, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator where it should keep for 2-3 days. To reheat simply microwave for a minute or two and enjoy again. This can also be frozen, I would suggest freezing this spinach bread before you bake it. Follow the instructions through stuffing the bread and then wrap your bread in foil or parchment paper. Place in a large freezer and place in the freezer. It should keep for up to 3. To re-heat, remove the bread from the freezer and place in the refrigerator to thaw. Top with your cheese and bake according to directions.

HOW TO MAKE SPINACH ARTICHOKE PULL-APART BREAD:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using your bread knife, cut your loaf of bread into strips at a diagonal angle, making sure not to cut all the way through the bread. Take your bread knife and cut diagonal strips the opposite direction, making sure not to cut through the loaf again.
Mix together the remaining ingredients, reserving about ¼ of the cheeses to top the bread.
Stuff the spinach dip into the crevices, trying to add as much into the bread as possible. You may have leftover dip.
Top the bread with the remaining cheese, making sure to get some in the crevices as well.
Wrap the bread in foil and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before eating.
