Open-Face Artichoke and Spinach Sandwich

This is your favorite party dip, scooped onto thick sourdough and served open face for dinner. My kids are in that phase that they don't eat anything green except for broccoli, green peas, and edamame. It's okay, I can live with that (for now), but I sure hope they change their mind because this will be making its way back on my menu board in a few weeks.


1 bag baby spinach (10 oz, or buy the frozen block, thaw, and squeeze out the juice)

1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

Juice from half a lemon

Hot sauce

Kosher salt and pepper

2-4 ounces cream cheese
