My office has THE BEST potluck themes. We recently did a theme for foods you can make in a muffin tin. There were no other restrictions and it might have been one of our best. We figured we love mini-food and thought it’d be a good theme for Valentine’s Day. I’m super delayed but happy to share these guys finally. My favorite techie has updated my whole computer so I was computer hopping and had files all over.
This theme would be really fun for a party or potluck because everything is really self-serve-able and because it is pretty self-contained, not everything needed silverware!
Mini spinach & cheese bites
Mini strawberry shortbreads
Mini Mac & Cheese
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes
Lemon Poppyseed Ebelskiver
Mint Frosted Brownies
Mini Lasagna Cups
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Mini Spinach & Artichoke Dip Cups (these were mine, the recipe is below)
Everything was so good!
Spinach & Artichoke Dip Cups
1 cup spinach, chopped
1 cup artichokes, chopped
1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce
1/2 package cream cheese
1 tsp garlic, chopped
1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
Assemble dip ingredients
If serving as dip, spray and transfer to a baking dish making a thin (aka dip-able) layer.
If serving as cups, spray a muffin tin and layer dip on top of wonton wrappers.
I think the alfredo made the mix really dip-able and not too thick. I freeze leftover spinach whenever I know I won’t get to all of it. I also threw in some frozen kale and I thought it was great. I put some basil in too. It gave a freshness and light taste.
