Ingredients
  

  • 6 ounces frozen spinach thawed and pat dried
  • 1 ½ cup artichoke hearts drained and roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese freshly grated
  • ½ cup white sharp cheddar cheese freshly grated
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 8 slices your favorite bread
  • 3 tablespoons salted sweet cream butter softened

Instructions
 

  • Using a medium-size mixing bowl, add the spinach, artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, onion powder, kosher salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  • Butter 1 side each of the 8 slices of bread. Set it aside.
  • Preheat a 10 to 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Spread ¼ to ⅓ cup of the spinach mixture over the unbuttered side of 4 of the 8 slices of bread.
  • Place 2 slices of the buttered bread with the spinach mixture, butter side down, in the heated skillet. Top with 2 slices of plain buttered bread, with the butter side up.
  • Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden, flip and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until this side is golden.
  • Repeat for the remaining 2 sandwiches.
  • Slice the sandwiches in half and serve immediately.

Notes

PRO TIP: The best way to get your cheese to melt is if you let it sit out for 15 to 20 minutes before you start making these.
 
PRO TIP: You can make the spinach artichoke filling a day in advance.
 
PRO TIP: This would also be fantastic grilled in a panini press instead of on the stovetop.
 
PRO TIP: As you cook your sandwich, gently press it down.
