Pull Apart Dip

party appetizers

When Jonathan pitched this idea for pull apart dip in our editorial meeting it went something like this.

Jonathan: So you take a cast iron skillet–

Me: I’m listening

Jonathan: And then you line the edges with rolls or biscuits–

Me: Keep talking

Jonathan: And then you fill the middle with dip–

Me: And you bake it?!

Jonathan: And you bake it!

I mean, how have we never thought of this before you guys? We are the self-appointed champions of dip creation and this seems like such an obvious upgrade. I’m kind of mad at myself for not thinking of it sooner! We used an incredible recipe for Spinach Artichoke Dip but this would also be delicious with our Buffalo Chicken Dip, our Broccoli Cheddar Dip or our Pizza Dip… heck you guys, this would be awesome with any hot dip!

Start by making the dip itself. Sauté the garlic, spinach and artichokes in olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayo, mozzarella, parmesan, sautéed veggies, salt and pepper.

Mix until the cheeses have melted and the dip is well incorporated.

Wipe down the skillet you used for the veggies, and then grease with melted butter. 

greasing a skillet

Open a can of pre-made biscuit dough and cut each biscuit in half. Then roll each half in between your palms to create a ball. Place all around the edge of the skillet close enough to touch each other.

Spoon the dip right in the center of the skillet, spreading it out all the way to the biscuits.

Brush the biscuits, liberally, with melted butter and sprinkle with chopped rosemary, thyme and salt.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the dip is bubbly and the biscuits are golden brown.

Allow your pull apart dip to cool slightly before serving… it’s hotter than the surface of the sun when it comes out of the oven. Then just rip and dip the biscuits in the creamy spinach artichoke dip!

Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  3. 1 (6 oz) package baby spinach leaves
  4. 1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  5. 1 cup mayonnaise
  6. 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  7. 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  8. 1 cup grated parmesan
  9. 1 teaspoon salt
  10. 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  11. 1 (16 oz) container pre-made biscuits, cut in half
  12. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  13. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  14. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Set a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat with the olive oil. Once hot, add the garlic and spinach. Allow the spinach to cook down, then add the artichoke hearts. Cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cream cheese, mozzarella, parmesan, cooked veggies, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined and the cheese has melted.
  4. Wipe out the skillet you used for the veggies and greased with a bit of the melted butter. Roll each biscuit half into a ball, using the palm of your hands, and place along the edge of the skillet. Spoon the dip into the center and spread out with a spatula so that it touches the edge of the biscuits.
  5. Brush the biscuits with melted butter and sprinkle with thyme, rosemary, and salt. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Allow to cool down slightly before serving.

    So, I found your site originally because I needed to lose 20 lbs. and I was randomly googling about how to lose weight and keep it off. Your post on maintaining your weight said something like, “It’s not easy, but it’s worth it” and the “it’s worth it” part is what has really, really, really stuck with me though, now, 15 lbs. of loss since the end of August. The night I found your site, I think I read the entire thing, and I re-read the post about maintaning weight probably every 2 or 3 days to keep myself committed. So, for that, I sincerely thank you! Anyhow, I check back every day and love your posts, but I have to say, I can’t eat a single recipe you make, and, more importantly, I don’t understand how you maintain your weight by eating like this either. I mean, you don’t have to be a health food site, for sure, but stuff like this is not in the spirit of “lose weight – it’s worth it.”

      Hi Hillary,

      We have a ton of great recipes that are high protein, low calorie and healthy you can find them here –> https://thechicsite.com/category/table/healthy-eats/ I have talked a lot about my own weightloss but this site isn’t a health site. If it feels like it isn’t based around the idea of “lose weight, it’s worth it” that’s because that’s not what the site is based around. 😉

      The Chic Site is a place that lifts up and encourages and (I hope) brings fun and joy to our readers lives. What is fun and joyful to me is celebrating with my family and friends and eating yummy food. The way I’m able to maintain my weight is that I treat these recipes as special occasion food. If we all ate cookies and cocktails every day of course we’d struggle with our weight. If we combine four slow cooker recipes with one of the Chic’s dips we’d never drop a pound. But serving au gratin potatoes alongside some roast chicken with a green salad? That’s more balanced. Ultimately everyone has to choose what works for them and for some site’s that’s organic, grilled, low cal… that’s just not my thing. xo

    I made this dip twice over the holidays for different gatherings and I’ve had no less than 10 people ask for the recipe. It’s absolutely fabulous! I used a corningware dish for baking instead of the skillet and that worked out just fine. Also used low and no-fat versions of the mayo and cream cheese to make it a slight bit healthier and it was still amazing. Well done!!

    I made this for Super Bowl and it was delicious! I used a cast iron skillet, low fat mayo and cream cheese and will definitely make it again! Thank you for the great idea – I never thought to put the bread around a dip like that and can envision doing it for lots of other dips – yummy!!
