Artichoke Dip Is Delicious


I have made this artichoke dip on several occasions when getting together with friends.  It is always a hit.  So, I thought I would share the recipe here.  

Ingredients:

  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese
  • 12-14 ounces marinated artichokes
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp dried Dill
  • 1 clove of fresh garlic (or to taste)
  1. Let your cream cheese sit out for a bit to soften.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Use a food processor to chop garlic.
  4. Add cream cheese, mayonnaise, dill, and artichokes.  I drain most of the oil out of the artichokes.  I leave a little bit for added flavor.
  5. Blend until smooth.
  6. In a separate bowl add 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese to the creamy mixture and blend.
  7. Pour mixture into a glass baking dish.
  8. Sprinkle on remaining parmesan cheese and garnish with dill.
  9. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the dish begins to bubble and brown slightly on top.
  10. Allow dip to cool for 10 minutes and serve with crackers, bread or fresh veggies.
