Hot Artichoke Dip

Back before the holidays, I tasted the most delicious Hot Artichoke Dip that I had ever tasted. I'm embarrassed to say that I started off with a small sampling with crackers, but then returned for a more generous portion which I ended up eating with a fork. Needless to say, I asked the hostess for the recipe, which she generously shared, God bless her!

Like so many great recipes that I've gathered over the years, after I got it, I tucked it away and promptly forgot about it. Well, I pulled it out on two occasions recently, and both times it was a huge hit. Best part of all is that it literally takes about 3 minutes to prepare -- and one batch makes a very generous portion.

I figured with Superbowl XLIV just around the corner, now was the perfect time to share it. However I'll forewarn you though -- if you're watching your calories or fat intake, you may want to avoid it -- it's super rich.

You'll Need

  • 1 14oz. can artichoke hearts (drained and chopped)
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated or shredded
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese (this dip is better if you a high quality cheese like Parmesan Reggiano)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (I’ve used light and regular, and it is much richer tasting with regular mayo)
  • a sprinkle of garlic salt
Step By Step
  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Place in fairly shallow baking dish (8 x 4 loaf dish, or a pie plate works well)
  3. Bake for 30 minutes at 350.
  4. Serve warm with crackers or crusty baguette slices.

Thank you for this :) I've never made a hot dip (nor have I ever eaten one) but I think I'll have to try this for my next party.

This sounds delicious. Dips are something I don't make too often...they are dangerous to my pants.
