Hot Artichoke Dip

Everyone has a go-to dip that they serve at every gathering….right? Well, this Hot Artichoke Dip is mine…I serve it at EVERY gathering. Christmas brunch….Landon’s birthday party….New Year’s…Valentine’s Day….Saturday night….it’s my staple dish for every party. And do you know why? Because everyone hovers around the bowl of melty, molten cheese until the bowl is clean….like licked clean.

But you know what? This dip has a secret….well, I have a little secret. That dip….the one that everyone hoovers down….I bought it at the grocery store. Yep, I cheated and that’s one of the reasons it’s a must have at my parties.

The Asiago Artichoke dip I buy is from my local grocery store and it’s supposed to be served cold….but I put it in a dish, sprinkle a bit of smoked paprika on it and bake it until bubbly perfection happens. BUT DON’T WORRY!!! I do have a recipe to share because when I looked at the ingredients….I knew I could whip up my own Artichoke Dip recipe in less time than it takes to run to the grocery store.

Serving Suggestions

While we love to dip into this with regular crackers sometimes we have these Sourdough Crackers on hand that just level up the entire evening. Or bake up a fresh loaf of brioche and serve for spreading!

They’re also fabulous spread on these Parmesan Crisps! Try it…I bet you’ll agree. Then invite your friends to lick the bowl clean.
