Cheesy Fresh Spinach Dip
1 medium onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
2 lbs fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oz cream cheese
2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 cup grated Mozzarella
1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large pan, heat a couple of TBSP olive oil.
Add chopped onion and garlic;
cook until softened about 5 minutes.
Add the fresh spinach in 2 additions along with
a portion of the stock and cover with a lid.
Let the first portion wilt before adding the next.
Repeat with the 2nd batch.
When spinach is thoroughly wilted, transfer to a colander
and drain; pressing to release all excess liquid.
In the same pan, add the cream cheese, spinach,
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, Worcestershire and heavy cream.
Heat on low until the cheese is all melted. Stir until combined.
Stir in the cup of sour cream.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Pour into baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.

or toasted bread.
