Spinach Artichoke Fondue in the Instant Pot

My husband requested I make a Spinach Artichoke dip as my next recipe post. Unfortunately, I have been very sick with this crud that is going around. So I was not able to make and test this recipe before Super Bowl Sunday, but better late then never! This is not the usual dip, it is more of a fondue because it is loaded with cheese. It is so gooey, but so yummy!

Materials:

Ingredients:

    10oz Fresh Spinach
    8oz Cream Cheese
    8oz Gouda Cheese, cubed
    1.5 cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
    1/2 cup Chicken Stock
    1tsp minced Garlic
    1/4 tsp Sea Salt
    1tbsp olive oil

Procedure:

  1. Turn Instant Pot to Sauté. Add Olive Oil and Garlic. Be careful not to burn the Garlic.
  2. Add rinsed spinach to pot. Keep tossing with the garlic and oil. This may seem like a lot, but the spinach will start to wilt and shrink down in the pot.
  3. When spinach has wilted down (about 1min), add broth and salt. Toss the spinach.
  4. Add cream cheese and stir.
  5. Add Gouda and stir.
  6. Place lid on IP and close the vent. Switch to Pressure Cook on High on Manual for 3 minutes. QPR.
  7. Add mozzarella and stir. If too watery, add more cheese. Please note that it will thicken as it cools.
  8. Serve with bread, tortilla chips, or pita chips. This would also be wonderful served in a bread bowl.

Maryland Crab Soup in the Instant Pot

It has been really cold the past few days. Plus our household has come down with the crud. So it is a perfect day for soup. Last week I had Maryland Crab Soup for lunch while out at a restaurant. It cost me $19 for a bowl with a side of hush puppies. I thought I could definitely make it for cheaper than that. Read More »

My Hack for the Perfect “Cook at Home” Ribs

My son and I both have a foible when it comes to food…we don’t like meat on the bone. So that means no chicken wings for us. We do make an exception for ribs, but they have to be fall off the bone ribs, which means we very rarely eat ribs. I have tried making ribs in the Instant Pot before and we thought they were okay, but not perfect. Then I bought a package of pre-cooked LLoyd’s ribs at BJs. At first I didn’t realize that they were pre-cooked. So I had planned on making them in the IP. I admit that I was flying a bit by the seat of my pants on how to cook them. I settled on ten minutes on high pressure. They were good but not perfect. I thought that the only way too cook the ribs was going to have to be the oven. That is until I decided to give the IP one more shot. Read More »

Angel Food Cake in the Instant Pot

I have made several cheesecakes in my instant pot. However, once it came to posting pictures here, I always decided not to because while they have tasted very good…I am not a good cake decorator, let’s put it that way. The other night I wanted a quick desert, but already had something taking up the oven. So I wondered if I could make something like a cake in the IP. So I made an angel food cake and my son declared it to be one of the best things he has eaten that I made. Here is what I did…Read More »
