Reviews for Artichoke Spinach Dip in a Bread Bowl
"I have used both marinated and plain canned artichokes, I prefer the plain, well rinsed too. Also I add chopped water chestnuts for crunch. Any round bread will do well if you don't likepumpernickle."
"Delicious. Use sourdough (for the bowl)!"
"The choice of bread is a tad questionable (I just use a round of French) but there will be NO leftovers. Recommend you make 1.5 or double the recipe and serve on slices of toasted French Baguette slices."
"I make this recipe as well except we are not that fond of pumpernickle bread so i use the whole round of the Hawaiian Bread and its delicious. I have also left out the artichokes and used just the spinich dip.You also do not have to serve this hot as you can make a cold spinich dip which we prefer in the summer months."
"Very good, to lower sodium content try using different cheeses. Parmesan is definitely a problem, also use artichoke hearts in water not the marinated ones. Easy fix."
