Appetizer season, cheesy dip season – whatever you want to call it. Around the holidays, life is all about the dips. Easy, make-ahead snacks that you can take to parties or prep for gatherings in your home. And of course, you want ones that everyone loves!
This artichoke chip is divine. It’s creamy and cheesy and melty, loaded with spices and herbs, roasted red peppers, a touch of lemon and lots of parmesan. Bake it until golden and bubbly and hot, then serve with all the crunchy toasts!
Lacy has been making this artichoke dip for a few years now. Everytime she makes it, the bowl is gone almost instantly, so I knew I had to share.
It’s delicious – so warm and bubbly and cheesy. Perfect for dipping with crackers, baguettes, carrots or celery sticks and even some homemade pita like I have here.
I live for homemade pita – it’s easy and so, so much better than store bought. We love how light and fluffy the homemade version is, so I always try to make it when I can. I use this recipe that I shared with my greek salad and it’s wonderful.
Of course, any kind of dippers work. The crunchiest crackers or toasts, any kind of sliced baguette, even tortilla chips – basically anything you love to dip.
Back when I had Max, we had a small greek restaurant near us that made the most amazing artichoke feta dip. I’ve been looking to recreate something similar since. Eddie and I loved that dip so much that we’d often order two of them when we got takeout, then store one in the fridge! We’d use it on my chicken pitas and recipes like that and enjoy all week long.
We were devastated when the place closed and I’ve never made an artichoke dip that I like quite as much. Until this! The artichokes are the MAIN ingredient in this dip. Not spinach, not bacon – the artichokes steal the show. That’s what I love about it. It’s different and a bit unique and also very artichoke-focused.
This is the ULTIMATE hot and cheesy party dip. It’s perfect for happy hour, goes wonderfully with white wine and pretty much any cocktail and is one of those snacks where you fight over the last bite.
The dip has eight ingredients and can be combined ahead of time. If you make it ahead, simply store it in the fridge until you’re ready to bake. This is what goes into this bubbly bowl of love:
- Parmesan cheese
- Artichoke hearts
- Roasted red peppers
- Basil and oregano
- Salt and pepper
That’s it! Mix it up. Bake it until golden and hot, then serve.
This is such a hit. It’s embarrassingly easy. The flavors are simple yet wonderful. It’s a nice dip to bring to a party or serve with other appetizers because the flavor is so complimentary of other foods. It’s easy, cheesy and once you start dipping it, you won’t want to stop!
