2 loaf Pillsbury French crusty bread
1 pound bacon
1 can diced chicken breast
9 oz green giant spinach (frozen chopped, thawed and drained)
8 ozs sour cream
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup Italian blend shredded cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
I had a recipe in mind but couldn’t narrow down which way would be best so I made a couple variations. They all turned out awesome but this one was the crowd favorite. I made one batch with chicken and one without to see which I liked best.
Cut bacon into pieces and fry or microwave until just crispy. Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
Microwave spinach for 4 minutes (according to the package) then drain. Mix in a bowl with sour cream, mayo, garlic powder and cheese. Add bacon and chicken. Stir together. Cut your French loaf in half. Then cut a slit lengthwise down each half and push the sides out a bit. Add your spinach dip filling on each of the four pieces. Sprinkle a little of the shredded cheese on top. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Slice and serve warm.
This turned out wonderful! And very filling. Rich flavors, easy to make and a fun variation to our traditional dinners. Even Michael liked it, although he claims to hate spinach.
