Spinach Artichoke Potatoes

Spinach artichoke potatoes are a delicious and comforting dish that combines the flavors of creamy spinach and artichoke dip with tender baked potatoes. Here’s a recipe to make this savory side dish:

Ingredients:

  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

For the Spinach Artichoke Filling:

  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the Potatoes:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400Β°F (200Β°C).
  2. Scrub the russet potatoes clean and pat them dry with paper towels. Prick each potato several times with a fork to allow steam to escape during baking.
  3. Rub the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt and black pepper.
  4. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake for about 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and let them cool slightly.

Make the Spinach Artichoke Filling:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the thawed and drained chopped spinach, chopped artichoke hearts, sour cream, grated Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

Assemble the Spinach Artichoke Potatoes:

  1. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, carefully cut a slit lengthwise in the top of each potato.
  2. Use a fork to gently fluff the inside of each potato.
  3. Spoon the spinach artichoke filling generously into each potato, making sure to stuff them evenly.
  4. Place the stuffed potatoes back in the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the filling is heated through and the tops of the potatoes are lightly golden.

Serve:

  1. Garnish the spinach artichoke potatoes with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  2. Serve the stuffed potatoes hot as a side dish or a light meal. Enjoy!

These spinach artichoke stuffed potatoes are a delicious twist on the classic baked potato, combining the rich and creamy flavors of the dip with the comfort of a baked potato. They make for a satisfying and flavorful dish that’s perfect for lunch or dinner.
