Spinach and Artichoke Dip Party Squares {Get REAL® on Gameday!}

Thank you to REAL® Seal for sponsoring this post.  I'm thrilled to rise to the latest REAL® Seal Dairy Diva challenge ~ to create and share a delicious dish with dairy that would be gobbled up at a football watchin' party.  Spinach and Artichoke Dip Party Squares sure fit that bill! 

Know what my favorite thing about watching football is?  The food!  Of course it is, silly.

Oh come on, you know I'm not the only one.  I truly do love to watch the game ... especially when it's my beloved Carolina Panthers or New England Patriots ..., but watching it with some totally delicious, party-perfect gobble-it-up gameday food makes the game just that much better.

Like everybody's party favorite, Spinach and Artichoke Dip.

But know what makes Spinach and Artichoke Dip even better?  {oh yes, it can  be better}
Bake it on a crust!  A yummy crescent roll crust, to be exact.

And then cut it into yummy little grab-em'-up-with-your-fingers party squares.


I told ya Spinach and Artichoke Dip could get even better than it already is.

There are lots of ways to include dairy in your football {or any other} party.  Cheese dip.  Quesadillas.  Pizza.  Marinated Cheese.  Creamy cocktails.  Buffalo wings with blue cheese for dippin'.  You name it!

And believe me, I'd go for any of those.  But I think I'd go for the Spinach and Artichoke Dip Party Squares first.

Packed full with creamy dip, featuring REAL® Seal-certified dairy products, these party squares are sure to be a hit.

You know the REAL® Seal, right?  Well just in case you don't, please allow me to introduce you.

REAL® Seal is this  red logo ...

... that we see all the time on dairy products.  Go take a peek in your refrigerator.  You'll see several , I'm sure!  Like on this container of sour cream in my fridge ...

REAL® Seal shows that products are genuine American dairy products, made with milk from cows on U.S. dairy farms, and meet strict manufacturing requirements. When you see the REAL® Seal on a dairy product, you can trust it’s the REAL thing.

When making these party squares ... or any dish with dairy ... look for the REAL® Seal.

And trust me.  You'll want to make to these Spinach and Artichoke Dip Party Squares.

Serve up a platter of these party-perfect gameday beauties at your next party ... and just watch them be totally gobbled up.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip Party Squares

  • 2 packages crescent rolls
  • 1 (1.4 oz.) envelope vegetable soup mix  {I use Knorr Vegetable Soup & Recipe Mix}
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
  • 1 (14 oz.) can artichoke hearts in water, well-drained & coarsely chopped
  • 1 (8 oz.) can water chestnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 oz. (2 c.) grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine soup mix, mayonnaise, and sour cream; set aside for soup mix to soften while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls and fit into a lightly greased jelly roll pan or rimmed cookie sheet; press seams together to form a crust. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until very light golden brown.
  3. Add garlic, spinach, artichokes, water chestnuts, and Monterey Jack cheese to soup mixture. Stir well to combine.
  4. Spread soup mixture over partially-baked crust. Sprinkle Parmesan evenly over the top. Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes until heated through.
  5. Cut into squares and serve.  {I use a pizza cutter to make for very easy cutting.}
