Spinach Artichoke Dip Onion Rings

If you can't afford to join the many food based subscription services out there, I absolutely stand by Tasty's recipes over on Buzzfeed. They are quick, simple and beyond delicious. I follow them all over social media, so it's easy to save pictures, ingredients and directions on my phone when I'm out and about. This Spinach Artichoke Dip Onion Ring recipe is making my mouth water just looking at the pictures. Saving and making this weekend!!!

Ingredients:

Servings: 10-12 rings
1 clove garlic, minced
5 ounces fresh spinach
16 ounces cream cheese
14 ounces artichoke hearts
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 white onion
1 cup flour
5 eggs, beaten
3 cups panko bread crumbs
Oil, for frying
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

In a skillet, heat a tablespoon of oil and saute garlic and spinach until spinach is wilted. 

In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add cooked spinach, artichoke hearts, mozzarella, salt, and pepper.

Peel and slice the onion into ½ inch rings, and detach the rings from each other.

On a wax paper–lined tray, lay out onion rings and fill each with dip mixture. Place tray in freezer until solid (about one hour).

 Preheat oil in a pot over medium heat to 350℉/180˚C.

Place the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls.

Dip a ring into the flour, shaking off excess, then dip it into the egg, the bread crumbs, then back into the eggs, and one last time into the breadcrumbs.

Repeat with the remaining rings. 

Fry the rings for 5-6 minutes, until deep golden brown

Drain on a paper towel, then serve and enjoy!
