    4 cups

  • Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen bread dough dinner rolls, thawed
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • DIP:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • Directions

  • Place a 6-in. cake pan or small ovenproof saucepan in the center of a 10-in. cast-iron skillet. Cut each roll into thirds; roll each piece into a ball. Place along outer edge of skillet. Gently stack remaining balls on top of bottom layer, leaving some space between them. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. Microwave butter, garlic powder and red pepper flakes, covered, until butter is melted. Brush half of butter mixture over dough. Reserve remaining butter mixture.
  • Bake until dough balls are set and beginning to brown, 15-18 minutes. Remove cake pan from skillet. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender, 5-7 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cream cheese, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Add the mushroom mixture, artichokes and spinach.
  • Spoon dip into center of skillet; sprinkle with red pepper and remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella. Brush rolls with remaining butter mixture; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Bake until dip is heated through and rolls are golden brown, 10-15 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with additional red pepper flakes.
