Bacon, Spinach, & Artichoke Bites


Spinach and artichoke dip is one of my favorites to get whenever we decide to share on an appetizer at certain restaurants. I decided to put it together in a way that they can be served in one poppable bite. 


What was leftover of the dip was used as a regular dip too!


Start with chopped spinach and artichoke.


Preparing the fillo shells! How fancy, right?



Then garnished with bacon when finished to give it an extra layer of flavor.
