5 ingredient spinach dip – helping OH with Fried Egg Friday

Every second Friday OH contributes to Fried Egg Friday at work. With me working some Thursday evenings he doesn’t always make things in time and I come and save the day! Usually at midnight or 1 a.m. because he has to be out the door at 6:30 a.m.

This past Friday OH wanted to bring spinach dip with pumpernickel bread. So after work ended at 11:15 p.m. I went to the 24-hour grocery store and bought some supplies for spinach dip and a loaf of pumpernickel bread… along with cookies – but those were for me!

This is what you need;

  • 1 container of sour cream (500 ml)
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1/2 chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 package of frozen spinach (150 g)
  • 1 package of Knorr vegetable soup dry mix

First cook the spinach in a pot of boiling water.

While the spinach is cooking, chop half an onion into fairly small pieces.


Drain the spinach when it is done cooking (about 5 minutes at a boil) and make sure you get as much water out of it as possible.

Looks kinda gross...

Add the sour cream and mayonnaise to a mixing bowl. In my case it is a Pyrex container so OH can take it to work.

Mix the mayonnaise and sour cream with a whisk until blended.

Add spinach and onion and continue to mix and then the Knorr soup mix, once again mixing thoroughly.


Taste test… a couple of times just to be sure!

Mmmmm pumperknickle

When OH came home he said that some co-workers described the dip as unreal and the best they’ve ever had. Now it looks like I will be making this for a little while.

I started at 1 a.m. (after I had worked and done 5K on the treadmill) and was totally zonked after the 18 minutes it took to make this easy dish.
