  • 1 1/4 tsp(s) yeast
  • 1/2 tsp(s) salt
  • 1/2 tsp(s) honey

  • 1 tbsp(s) olive oil
  • a pad of butter, set aside for later use
  • Pam spray or similar
  • FOR THE DIP
  • 2 cup(s) fresh spinach
  • 1/2 small jar of marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 2 oz about 1/4 of a cream cheese brick
  • 1/4 cup(s) plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp(s) mayonnaise
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp(s) (preferred) hot sauce
  • 1/8 cup(s) Parmesan cheese, grated + a bit extra
  • 1/8 cup(s) shredded mozzarella + a bit extra
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

TO MAKE THE BREAD DOUGH:

Warm 1/2 cup milk (lukewarm--not hot) then and add salt, honey and stir. Add yeast and allow to sit for several minutes to activate. Meantime, add 1 cup of flour to your mixer bowl. When ready, add your milk/yeast combo plus 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Mix on low speed until combined, then switch to medium speed. Add remaining flour in 1/4-cup increments. Dough should be tacky but not too sticky. Dust your hands with flour then mold dough into a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Cover with Saran wrap and leave in a warm place to rise about 1 hour.

FOR THE DIP:

Place the fresh spinach in a medium bowl and add a tsp. of water. Cover with Saran wrap and place in microwave for 1 minute. Leave covered and allow to cool about 10 minutes. Drain and ring out moisture. Move to a cutting board and chop, then return to bowl and add all other ingredients. Cover and refrigerate.

BACK TO THE DOUGH:

Remove and slightly roll out to cut into 8 even pieces. Slightly tuck ends under and place along the side of of a small, oiled skillet. Place a small bowl or cup with about a 3-inch diameter to act as a placeholder for your dip. You can create a foil ball if you don't have something to use, but hit whatever you use with spray oil. Cover and place in a warm area for about a half hour.

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove the cover and placeholder. Add your dip and sprinkle the extra cheese on top. Melt the butter set aside and brush over each roll. Place in the oven and check it after 20 minutes. It's done when slightly browned. Remove, turn oven to broiler, and place under broiler for about 30 seconds--watch closely. Remove from oven and sprinkle a bit of hot sauce on top if desired. Enjoy!
