It’s cheesy, it’s warm and it’s oh-so tasty! Cob loaf dip has got to be one of the easiest and most satisfying things to make, especially if you’ve got people coming over and you’re short on time. It’s so easy to mix it all together and then throw in the oven while it works it’s magic. It’s lovely served on a bread broad with a collection of the toasted bread, crackers and veggie sticks scattered around it. The best part is that everyone can dig in all together and you won’t have any washing up to do at the end!

- 250g frozen spinach, thawed
