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.

I've made this dip several times to take to parties and it has always been a huge hit! I have not yet made it in a bread bowl; I just bake it in a corning dish. It's easier for me to transport and reheat that way. I also use a little extra mayo and cheese to make it a little creamier.

You could wash off all of the liquid to reduce the salt of the artichokes and use the low sodium soups/
