A twist on the crowd-pleasing party dip, these five-ingredient spinach and artichoke stuffed mushrooms are not only healthy but packed with flavor!
Party season is in full force and I couldn’t be more excited to entertain friends and family! We’ve already got your festive cocktails covered so now it’s time to focus on the best part: party snacks!
I don’t know about you but when it comes to effortless entertaining, I like to serve two or three simple and delicious appetizers that are fool-proof and made with just a handful of affordable ingredients. Give caviar the day off and switch things up with these Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Mushroom Caps.
Made with creamy feta cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts and minced scallions, these handheld party bites are a huge hit with both adults and kids alike. For a little kick, I like to sprinkle them with chili flakes before serving but that is completely optional.
