How to Make Warm Artichoke Dip
Artichokes are the star of this recipe. Drain them thoroughly and roughly chop them. I started with quartered pieces. Make sure to buy artichokes that are NOT marinated or you will get an entirely different outcome that will incorporate the taste of the marinade.
I've only used canned artichokes to make this, but check out this Fresh Artichoke Dip recipe if you want to go that route!
The other ingredients are:
- Cream cheese
- Mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Garlic powder
Over the years, we've used products that are low-fat, fat-free, dairy-free and full fat. I'm not judgey...use the products that you use for everything else!
Everything goes into a bowl and is mixed thoroughly. Scrape the mixture into an oven-proof dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until warmed through and bubbly.
Use ramekins for instant portion control!
Hot to make Hot Artichoke Dip Ahead of Time
If you're having Warm Artichoke Dip for a party, then make it up ahead of time. Prepare the recipe up to the point of cooking it. Cover and refrigerate until ready to enjoy! It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for several days.
Can you Freeze Warm Artichoke Dip?
Yes! Wait until the artichoke dip has cooled if you are freezing leftover dip.
You can also assemble and freeze this recipe before cooking it. Assemble it in the container that will go in the freezer. Cover with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil and freeze.
For the best results, use within 2 months. When you are ready to enjoy the artichoke dip, defrost it in the refrigerator overnight.
It can also be cooked from frozen. Use a meat thermometer to ensure it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
