Spinach Dip in a Bread Shell

This recipe was given to me by my lovely friend Nada, who is a fabulous cook and a great hostess. Besides an amazing symphony of flavours, this rustic dish offers guests an amazingly warm experience; it brings them together to enjoy this savoury dip served in a bread shell. I like to add an extra gourmet touch to this dip by crumbling some blue cheese on top and letting it melt into a warm mixture of the filling. I serve it as an appetizer with small pieces of bread for dipping and few slices of lemon and lime in case my guests enjoy an extra squeeze of it. 

Ingredients:Frozen chopped spinach, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 cup of mayonnaise, ½ cup of green onion, 1tsp. Parsley flakes or a small bunch of fresh parsley, lemon or lime juice to taste, ½ tsp. Seasoned salt, round crusty bread.

Directions:Mix all ingredients together. Cut the top from round loaf. Remove bread from inside shell, leaving 1 inch thick. Reserve removed bread for dipping. Fill with dip. Wrap in foil. Preheat your oven to at 300 F and bake for 2 hours.
