Cheesy Escarole Dip with Meat Crisps

Warm Cheesy Escarole Dip is a twist on the party-favorite spinach dip that we know. Hearty escarole replaces the spinach in this pub favorite appetizer. Serve up with @carnivorecrisps Chicken & Beef crisps for a super low carb protein packed snack! Dipping in to this with the meat crisps gives me all the wedding soup vibes (you know that soup made with escarole soup and little meatballs)

Escarole can be a tad bitter so I cook until wilted in lightly salted water to take the bitterness away. Drain real well and then whip it in a food processor with the cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, and garlic. Fold in the other cheeses and red pepper flakes.

This creamy delicious appetizer is easy to prepare. You can make ahead and keep in the fridge, then cook when ready to serve. And be sure to have our Carnivore Crisps on hand - they make awesome dippers. And feel free to double dip!

Cheesy Escarole Dip with Meat Crisps


6 cups fresh chopped escarole

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup shredded provolone cheese

3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

4 oz. cream cheese softened

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

1 clove garlic minced or 1 tsp of garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 pkg of Carnivore Crisps for dipping


1. Fill a medium pot with water. Bring to a boil. Add escarole to the water. Blanch quickly, about 1 minute, stirring. Strain and squeeze out excess water. Set aside. (I wrap the escarole in a clean towel when squeezing out the liquid. Then let sit on dry clean towel or paper towels while measuring out the other ingredient).

2. In a small bowl combine shredded mozzarella cheese, provolone cheese, and Parmesan. Set aside.

3. In a food processor, chopper, add cream cheese and drained escarole. Pulse a few times, add in mayo, sour cream, and garlic. Pulse until smooth, about 1 minute.

4. Place spinach mixture into a medium bowl, fold in (all but 3 Tbsp) of the shredded cheese mixture, and red pepper flakes.

5. Spoon spinach and cheese mixture into a 2-cup ovenproof dish; sprinkle with remaining cheese.

6. Bake 375 degrees until hot, bubbly, and golden

7. Serve with Carnivore Crisps (Chicken is my favorite for dipping)
