Top Secret Artichoke Dip

I’m going to let you all in on a well guarded secret. Everyone who has ever been to a party thrown or attended by me has more likely than not experienced my “Super Top Secret Artichoke Dip.” People appear to love this stuff and I aim to please. The dish is always scraped clean and I’ve played it pretty coy over the last few years politely declining to share the recipe — until now.

Prepare to be “wowed.”

My Super Top Secret Artichoke Dip
Loosely adapted from the Hot Feta and Artichoke Dip on the Nabisco Website

2 cans (14 ounces each) artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 package (8 ounces) Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 package (5 ounces) Shredded Parmesan Cheese
2 Roasted Red Peppers, drained and chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Assorted crackers for dipping (I prefer Triscuit Thin Crisps)

Preheat the oven to 350Β°F. Mix all of the ingredients together except the crackers.
Spoon the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate or 3-cup shallow baking dish.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with crackers.

Ah, the long awaited recipe! Looking forward to trying it. I always put crabmeat in my artichoke dip, but to be honest it probably doesn’t need it…it’s the creamy artichokeyness everybody wants!

One clove of garlic, minced is equivelant to how much preminced garlic? One teaspoon? Thanks for your expertise!

LC – Happy Thanksgiving! You’re correct. One clove of fresh garlic is equal to one teaspoon of pre-minced garlic.
