Can I freeze uncooked Spinach and Artichoke Dip?
I would like to freeze the pre-baked version of spinach artichoke dip. Has anyone tried this? And how does it turn out when you bake it after defrosting?
If your dip is commercially prepared, it might work because those dips have stabliizers in them to prevent this. I've seen frozen artichoke-spinach dip at Trader Joe's.
But if your dip is homemade, don't freeze it. Frozen mayo separates.
We do spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer whenever we make pizza in our wood-fired oven. But my recipe makes just enough so 2/3 gets cooked in the WFO-tolerant le creuset pan, and 1/3 doesn't. I always freeze my leftover dip, and make the leftovers when we're feeling too lazy to cook, to no ill effect. Maybe the texture isn't compromised because I use fat free mayo? It's an old weight watchers recipe I use (which I find much more flavorful and delicious than the standard restaurant fare, as well as more healthy).
