Artichoke Dip

Bubbling hot

I was at a party one time and I couldn’t stop eating this artichoke dip. I think I practically ate the whole thing and the hostess had to make another batch. That’s the thing about me, I’m not shy about stuffing my face in public. It’s actually kind of gross sometimes; I can devour a burger and fries in minutes. Anyway, I bragged about this dip so much to the hostess that night that she finally gave me her recipe. I love this recipe because it’s super simple. There is no spinach in there, which I think is what makes it easy to make. You can certainly add spinach, you just have to deal with thawing it and ringing it out really well.

This recipe is by no means low fat; in fact in might give you an instance heart attack, but it’s an artichoke dip so you probably already knew that. I recommend doubling the recipe if you’re having a big party cause it’ll go fast.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Level: Easy
Yield: 4-6 servings


1 cup mayo
1 cup parmigiano reggiano
3-4 ounces herbed goat cheese
1 can artichoke hearts
freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain artichokes and chop roughly. Combine all ingredients well and bake for 25 minutes. That’s it!

Oh yeah, I think I promised a giveaway. So here it is! A good friend of mine introduced me to these amazing edible icing sheets. His cousin owns the company, ticings, that makes these lovely pieces. I’ll be honest that I haven’t yet used the product but they look like fun. I’m not getting paid to advertise the product and I don’t know the owner personally. I just really want to share the product with you-all. I think the packet I have has 4 of the miniature and two of the regular sized sheets. If you’re interested, leave me a comment on this post and I’ll pick a random winner in a week or so.  I’m a little scared no one will comments. 🙂
