Spinach Alfredo Dip

Here are the recipes for the appetizers I'm serving up 2 hours prior to the Thanksgiving buffet dinner. I figured I'd post the recipes now before the kitchen chaos begins (and I'll post pics of the final products by Thursday)...

Spinach Alfredo Dip
& Gruyere Artichoke Dip
with Garlic Crostini
Spinach Alfredo Dip

1 1/2 cups homemade or prepared alfredo sauce
1 cup frozen chopped spinach
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
salt, pepper, garlic powder & onion powder to taste

Combine all the above ingredients and place in a small serving dish.
Prior to serving, heat up until warmed.You could also serve it in a "Lil Dipper" mini crockpot or oven proof baking dish.
If using a casserole dish, bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until bubbly.
If using a lil dipper crockpot, plug in and allow to warm at least 30 minutes before serving.

Garlic Crostini
ciabatta, french baguette or italian loaf
1/2 stick butter
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 - 1 tablespoon chopped fresh italian parsley

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut bread on a bias across, about 1" thick, into small serving slices.
Combine the butter, garlic and parsley to make a compound butter.
Spread butter on one side of bread.
Bake on a cookie sheet until slightly browned.
Serve with your fave dip or with cheeses.
