Cheesy Artichoke Dip

"I first tasted this warm, well-flavored dip at our daughter's house—and immediately asked for the recipe," relates Ramona Larson, a homemaker from Andover, Minnesota. Since then, she's served it herself at family gatherings. "Everyone who tries it comes back for more," she reports. If you'd like, you can place the dip in a hollowed-out-artichoke, just like our kitchen crafters did. Or keep it in the dish you bake it in—either way, it'll heat up any setting.

    16 servings


  • 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 to 3 fresh artichokes, optional
  • Assorted crackers


  • In a bowl, combine the artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, onion, parsley and garlic salt. Spoon into an ungreased 1-qt. baking dish. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese.

    I really loved this dip, but the second time around I made a few changes that worked better for me. I used only the 1/2 cup of Parmesan, and cut the mozzarella back just a bit too. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt, some oregano instead of parsley, and added a bit of chopped spinach (from frozen, just thaw and squeeze dry). The dip is decadent; try it on hot cooked pasta too!

    We love this dip. I do cut the mayo down to a 1/2 to 2/3 C. and don't top with Parmesan cheese, just use the stirred in part. My daughter likes to stir in a bit of chopped fresh spinach when she makes it.
