Artichoke Dip

This is such an easy appetizer. Only takes a few minutes to mix it together…& only has 3 ingredients  + one to sprinkle on the top if you want….It used to be on the party circuit & I haven’t seen it lately…or rather eaten it lately…so I decided to make it for company the other evening….

I got the recipe from my sister’s friend Roz many years ago!

I make it in the food processor but if you do not have one, you can chop the artichokes by hand of course …or a blender could work too.

Serve this with crackers or vegetables…I had both on a plate ready to eat with this yummy dish.

Here is the recipe


2 cans of artichoke hearts…not the marinated ones

2 cups mayonnaise…you can use light

1 cup of parmesan cheese with extra for sprinkling on the top

paprika to sprinkle on the top


  1. Drain the artichokes
  2. Place them in the bowl of a food processor & process until fairly smooth, you don’t want big chunks…
  3. Add the mayonnaise & the parmesan cheese & mix until fully combined
  4. Put into a serving dish that is oven safe…I used a quiche plate…
  5. Sprinkle with the extra parmesan & some paprika
  6. Bake for uncovered for 20 minutes
  7. Keep it warm if you can while serving…it tastes good warm but it was ok at room temperature too…. I didn’t have a warming plate to keep it warm, I bet one of those little crock pot warmers would work…?

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
