Who’s ready for tailgate season?  Soon there will be a chill in the air and football season will be in full swing.  Make sure you are ready with game day treats that are sure to be a crowd pleaser!  Spinach artichoke dip is always a hit.

Keep reading for the recipe!  

This recipe comes from one of my favorite brands, King’s Hawaiian.  Their bread is so soft and sweet, it’s hard to eat just one slice!

For this dip you will use two of their round loaves.  One is hollowed out and used as a bread bowl, the other is cubed and toasted for dipping.

I love taking recipes like this one to a party.  Since it is served in an edible bread bowl, you won’t have to worry about bringing  back a serving dish after the event!
