When we threw together this cheesy biscuit and spinach dip for movie night this weekend, we never expected it to be this phenomenal. The warm, creamy, gooey spinach dip in the center is one of the best we’ve ever tasted. We love how the pepper jack cheese and horseradish spice things up, but what really takes this spinach dip over the top is the ring of flaky, buttery biscuits around it.
It comes out of the oven looking elegant and delicious, but this is really a no-frills kind of dish. It’s so easy to enjoy, perfect for sharing, and everything comes together with almost no effort. Our family loves this incredible biscuit and spinach dip, so it’s sure to score points with every fan on big game Sunday!
