Artichoke and Cheese Dip

My great friend Lisa introduced me to this recipe a few years ago and I still haven’t decided yet whether to thank her or curse her. It always gets rave reviews at parties and barely lasts long enough to cool, but I tend to crave it and want to make it when its just me at home with the dogs, a glass of rum and some good tv shows. But I don’t. Mostly because of cost not because it isn’t the easiest dip to make. I will share the recipe with you but don’t blame me if you get addicted too!

It is only costly because of the artichoke hearts and fresh parmesan cheese. Both can be found at your local grocery store for around $5 each. Now you are going to use the whole can of artichokes but the cheese will last for multiple recipes (or batches of dip!!).

What you will need:

1 can of Artichoke Hearts

1 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese

1 tsp chopped garlic

3-5 Tbsps of mayonaise

 

Open your can of artichoke hearts and squeeze each one individually until most, if not all, of the liquid is out. Do a rough chop and place in a bowl.

Mix in your garlic

cheese

 

mayo.

Place in a pie plate.

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Broil on high for 3-5 minutes or until browned on top and bubbly.

This dip will be EXTREMELY hot. Wait at least 5 minutes before eating.

 

This is a fab dish to bring to potlucks and parties. Folks will think you slaved hours over it….or think you bought it! They will be in awe when you tell them you made it from scratch!

 

Enjoy!

love, peace and chicken grease,
