Houston’s Spinach Dip

My college roommate, Elizabeth, hosted a bridesmaid’s weekend for all of the girls who were in her wedding. While we were there, her parents treated us for lunch at Houston’s, where we ordered this dip. We loved it so much that her mom shared the recipe, which she had found in the local newspaper.

Romano cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts, cream cheese, and eggs are whirled in a food processor and baked until golden and delicious.
