Make this tasty tip that has all the right flavors to entertain guests at your next party. With spinach and savory diced ham, all you need is some Sargento® Light Ricotta Cheese to get a perfectly creamy texture that makes this dip perfect for dunking bread cubes. The presentation in an emptied bread shell adds a nice touch to a delicious appetizer!

  • 2 cups (15 oz.) Sargento® Light Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 lb. ham, diced
  • 3/4 cup (3 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 (1 lb.) round loaf bread, unsliced
  1. Combine Ricotta cheese and sour cream in food processor, blender or electric mixer; Process until smooth. Stir in spinach, ham, Parmesan cheese and green onions; set aside.
  2. Cut 1-inch slice off top of bread; reserve. Remove bread from inside loaf, retaining a 3/4-inch shell. Cut bread from inside loaf into bite-size cubes; set cubes aside.
  3. Pour cheese mixture into bread shell; replace top. Wrap bread in foil and place on baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 60 minutes or until heated through. Arrange heated loaf and bread cubes on large serving platter.
