Artichoke Spinach Dip in a Bread Bowl

Baking the dip in the actual bread shell makes it a very attractive dish, and it's very easy to clean up. Every time I serve this, people can't believe how healthy and veggie-filled it is. —Ella Homel, Chicago, Illinois
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    4 cups


  • 3 jars (7-1/2 ounces each) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 round loaf (1 pound) rye or pumpernickel bread


  • In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Cut a thin slice off the top of bread. Hollow out the bottom half, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. Cut removed bread into 1-in. cubes.
  • Place cubes on an ungreased baking sheet. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until golden, stirring once.
  • Place bread shell on an ungreased baking sheet. Spoon dip into bread shell. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Serve with bread cubes.
Editor's Note: Reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise is not recommended for this recipe. If any of the dip does not fit in bread shell, bake, uncovered, in a greased small baking dish until heated through.

    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.
