Go to store. Buy spinach dip.

Go with Velvita and Rotel, white trash Tex-Mex classic.

Just use the recipe off the back of a Knorr's package. It's easy, fine, and basically what everyone expects anyway.
Other than that, just go buy it from Trader Joe's or Costco. It's cheap, easy, and your guests probably don't have a sophisticated palate anyway (obviously not if you're going to serve Spinach Dip).
So do either of the above, stuff it in a bread bowl and forget about it.

OP, I will give you my aunt Fayrene's recipe, then it's THREAD CLOSED.
1 box or bag frozen spinach, thawed, squeeze out as much of the water as possible in paper towels.
1 can water chestnuts, chopped up finely.
4 scallions, greens and whites, chopped.
1 pint sour cream.
1 package Knorr's vegetable soup mix, dry.
1 tbs mayonaisse.
Mix all ingredients together very well. Chill one hour, then transfer to a medium size glass bowl.
Locate Hawaiian bread in the orange package. This is only sold in some stores but it's the ONLY thing to serve with this dip. Crackers or other bread won't wow your guests in the same way.
Cut a small circle out of the loaf of bread and place the spinach dip bowl inside. Cover with saran wrap. When you arrive at the party tear 1/4 of the loaf into chunks and place around the plate the loaf and dip are in. You will be the talk of the party!!!

R2 has the best advice. It's in the deli department at the grocery store.

Want me to help with that?

The one at Costco is amazing. Better than homemade.

So your Aunt's recipe is the Knorr's recipe served with King's Hawaiian rolls.

The bought kind is full of Miracle Whip and salmonella and regret.

While R4 and R5 might have posted with good intent, I think it's best if you do a little research on Knorr products before you commit to buy. Read the ingredients panel, and you will find that nearly all Knorr products have MSG listed as a chief component.

I've seen Hawaiian rolls, but never a loaf of bread.

I'm impressed you have a bridge club. My roommates and I played with friends in college, but I haven't played a hand since then.

They're going to be eating Spinach Dip... I don't think they're going to be that worried about the MSG content.

Bridge club? Spinach dip? What is this, 1957?

Spinach dip is hip and I envy anyone who has a bridge club.

A little trick our cook at the club would add is grilled lobster meat diced up , of course I made a meal of it!!

I was touring Prince Edward Island and in the tiny town of Victoria found the most marvelous set of bridge dishes for candy. They are glass, each a different color, and in the shape of a diamond, club, heart, and whatever the other card shape is. Pink, blue, green, and yellow.
I don't play bridge, but if someday I do, I shall purchase bridge mix for them. I happen to like spinach dip too, although never made it. I thought there was cream cheese in there too.
Oh, and the place I bought the bridge dishes was a big old Victorian house painted many different colors. It was so pretty. The couple who lived there had a shop in the parlor, also sold things embelleshed with vintage ribbon floral designs. There was a chocolate factory in town and we dined on lobster rolls overlooking the water.
I enjoyed Prince Edward Island but nearby Nova Scotia is so much more unspoiled.

R5 has a good recipe, but not enough mayo. It needs 2 cups of sour cream and mayo total--change the proportion to whatever you prefer. You can also substitute Greek yogurt for a lighter version. Also, a pumpernickel or sour dough boule is preferable to that sweet Hawaiian bread. I hate sweet and savory together, but that's me.

I am no Aunt Fayrene but I have a good recipe of the "packaged soup" variety.
Blend one package of Lipton or any similar brand of powdered vegetable soup mix with one cup of mayo. Add one softened block of Philadelphia cream cheese and a tablespoon of lemon juice and blend till consistent. Stir in two packages of cooked and very well-drained frozen spinach. Drain two small tins of smoked oysters in oil and stir in the oysters. Add a bit of the drained oyster oil if you wish. Transfer the mixture into one medium-sized or two or three smaller baking dishes and bake it in a 350 degree oven until the top edges start to brown - 20-25 minutes, keep an eye on it. Delicious cold but best served warm.
