Mediterranean Spinach & Artichoke Bake {Low-Carb, Keto & Primal}

Do you remember me mentioning my obsession with Brie cheese while fasting?? Brie makes the perfect creamy, cheesy topping to my delicious Mediterranean Spinach & Artichoke Bake {Low-Carb, Keto & Primal}.

Similar in flavor to everyone’s favorite spinach & artichoke dip, only kicked up with bacon and olives… served nice and thick. Think of my Mediterranean Spinach & Artichoke Bake as a more sophisticated version creamed spinach. Perfect as a side dish or appetizer .. or even a light lunch.

Ingredients

  • 3 slices bacon chopped coarsely
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 10 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 pinch Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 6 ounces frozen artichoke hearts (roughly 1/2 of a 12 ounce bag)

  • 2 ounces Brie Cheese
  • - Sea Salt to taste
  • - Black Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In a large skillet, over medium heat, cooked chopped bacon.
  • Remove bacon pieces from the skillet, leaving the bacon fat behind.
  • Lightly saute garlic in bacon grease for 1-2 minutes then add spinach. Season liberally with sea salt, pepper & a pinch of crushed red pepper.
  • Cook spinach for 2-3 minutes or until completely wilted. Add cream cheese and continue to cook until it is melted.
  • Add frozen artichoke hearts and reduce heat. (season well with s&p again) Cook another 3-5 minutes or until artichoke hearts are thawed.
  • Stir in black olives. Transfer mixture to 2 small ovenproof dishes. Top with brie cheese.
  • Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until hot, bubbly and cheese is melted.
  • Serve while warm as a side dish or dip for vegetables.

Notes

Note: be sure to salt the artichoke hearts well. They tend to taste flat without adequate seasoning.

    This was super easy – minimal prep besides chopping the garlic. I couldn’t quite figure out how to cut the brie to get it to melt like the picture, but good nonetheless.

    1. Locally I purchase them at Kroger. My parents buy them at Trader Joe’s and I believe Whole Foods carries them too.
