Instructions

Brush a 2-quart soufflé dish lightly with olive oil or coat with cooking spray. Place the spinach in a clean, dark kitchen towel and squeeze until all liquid is removed; reserve. Place the artichoke quarters in a towel and squeeze gently to remove excess liquid (do not squeeze too hard); reserve.


Place the cream cheese and evaporated milk in a large bowl. Using a hand-held mixer on medium speed, beat until creamy and smooth. Add the Gruyère, garlic, shallot, and two-thirds of the Parmesan; stir on low speed. Add the reserved arti- choke hearts and hot sauce; stir on low speed to blend.


Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Place the rack in the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Place the filled soufflé dish on the rack.


Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 3 hours and press High; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed.


Dip should be puffed and bubbly when done. Serve hot with crackers or sliced French bread.
