Oscar Party Ideas

Check out the awesome Oscars Party Widget above! Here's one of my fave party recipes:

Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Dip


prep time
10 min
total time
30 min
2-3/4 cups or 22 servings, 2 Tbsp. each

What You Need!

1 can (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained, finely chopped
1 pkg.  (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained
3/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
3/4 cup  KRAFT Light Mayo Reduced Fat Mayonnaise
1/2 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 tsp.  garlic powder

Make It!

HEAT oven to 350°F.
MIX all ingredients; spoon into 9-inch quiche dish or pie plate.
BAKE 20 min. or until heated through.
SERVE with TRISCUIT Reduced Fat Crackers and assorted cut-up fresh vegetables.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Substitute 1 env. (0.7 oz.) GOOD SEASONS Italian Salad Dressing Mix for the garlic powder.
Awesome Spinach and Mushroom Dip
Substitute 1 cup chopped mushrooms for the artichokes.
Makeover Savings
This made-over version of the popular artichoke dip uses 3/4 cup KRAFT Light Mayo Reduced Fat Mayonnaise instead of regular KRAFT Real Mayo Mayonnaise, and a blend of Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses instead of the 2 cups mozzarella used in the original recipe. These simple tweaks save over 50 calories and 5.5 grams of fat per serving when compared to the traditional artichoke dip.

Love the artichoke dip recipe. I'll give that a try this weekend. Sadly, though I missed the Oscars. I don't think I've seen many of the nominees this year actually.
