INGREDIENTS

  • 4 (12 ounce) potatoes, preferably russets
  • Canola, vegetable, or olive oil, for rubbing
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups (4 ounces) raw baby spinach, chopped
  • 8 ounces canned artichokes, drained and chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. If Using Only the Oven: Preheat oven to 375°F. Using a fork or paring knife, puncture potatoes all over. Rub each potato with a light coat of oil. Arrange on a rack set on a baking sheet, or directly on an oven rack, and bake until a fork can easily be inserted into the center of each potato, about 1 hour. If setting potatoes directly on oven rack, set a sheet of foil on the rack below to catch any oil drips.
  2. If Using the Microwave and Oven: Preheat oven to 450°F. Using a fork or paring knife, puncture potatoes all over. Microwave potatoes for 5 minutes. Rub each potato with a light coat of oil. Arrange on a rack set on a baking sheet, or directly on an oven rack, and bake until a fork can easily be inserted into the center of each potato, about 20 minutes. If setting potatoes directly on oven rack, set a sheet of foil on the rack below to catch any oil drips.
  3. Let potatoes rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, stir together sour cream, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, shallot, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Slice each potato open lengthwise and carefully scoop flesh into the mixing bowl with the dip base. Mash the potatoes with a fork while mixing with the other ingredients, then fold in mozzarella cheese, artichokes, and spinach.
  4. Scoop potato mixture back into the baked potato skins and shape back into the classic baked potato shape. Return to oven and cook until the cheese has melted and begun to brown in spots, about 5 minutes. Serve warm.
