Artichoke & Roasted Garlic Dip

I have the perfect appetizer for your upcoming holiday gatherings.  This dip is creamy, rich and overflowing with flavor.  It is ooey-gooey cheesy goodness and extremely addictive.  This is not your ordinary artichoke dip.  It is bursting with pungent roasted garlic.

Ingredients
  1. 2 heads of Roasted Garlic*
  2. 6 oz Frozen Artichoke Hearts
  3. 4 oz Cream Cheese
  4. 1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  5. 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  6. 1/2 tsp Cracked Pepper
  7. 1½ cups Shredded Cheese Blend**
  8. (I used a Parmesan, Asiago, Fontina & Mild Provolone cheese blend)
Instructions
  1. First you will need to roast your garlic. See the How To Roast Garlic link below this recipe.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°
  3. Mash roasted garlic cloves with a fork until it becomes a thick paste.
  4. Thaw and drain the frozen artichoke hearts.
  5. Make sure you remove as much liquid as possible then chop artichokes into small pieces.
  6. Reserve 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese blend, put to the side.
  7. Mix all other ingredients together thoroughly and place into the desired baking dish.
  8. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
  9. I also added a little more cracked pepper and an artichoke heart to garnish.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes then broil for 3-5 minutes until the top is bubbly and brown.
Notes
  1. *If you are timid about garlic, use only one head of roasted garlic.
  2. **You don’t need this exact cheese blend but something similar with melty cheeses.
  3. This recipe makes approximately 3 cups of dip.
  4. If you are preparing this for a large group I suggest doubling the recipe.

    Can you use ca.
    nned artichoke hearts? I can’t seem to find frozen

  2. Garrick says:

    This looks awesome. And I had to laugh when I (just now) dug out my original art dip recipe from the ’80s that I shoveled into my face with Rye Krisp. It’s simply artichoke hearts, mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese.

    Just the cheese mix shows hour our tastes have changed over the years! More complicated flavor profiles.

    Thanks again for sharing your experiment.

      Hey, I wouldn’t turn down an artichoke-mayo-parmesan dip! But, the roasted garlic in this dip is Ahhh-Mazing! Thanks for stopping by Garrick :)

  3. Holy moly. I love a good artichoke dip but have never had one with roasted garlic. This looks sooooooooooooooooooo good.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Thanks Des! You definitely need to add some roasted garlic next time … It is AhhhMazing! Have a great week :)

  4. You see so many spinach and artichoke dip recipes that you forget you can do other things with artichoke than douse it in spinach! Ha. :) This dip looks amazing!!! Also, if you’re looking for a new Tuesday party I run Tasty Tuesdays and every post gets pinned! Here’s this week’s party if you’d like to link up: http://anyonitanibbles.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/tasty-tuesdays-26.html

  5. Yum! I love, love, love garlic and this dip just looks amazing! I can’t wait ti try this:)

  6. OMG…I am thinking a yummy appetizer before the turkey and trimmings! Better triple this puppy, cuz I will clean house on 1/3 of this yumminess BEFORE it leaves the house!!!!!
    PS…I pinned this yumminess and I am so grateful for people like you!!!!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      You got that right! Once you smell this garlicky deliciousness you will need to dig in immediately! Thanks for pinning and for the kind words :)

  7. Delicious! This is absolutely my new go to artichoke dip recipe. Thanks.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Thanks Maren! I don’t make this dip much anymore because I cannot stop myself from eating the entire batch!

  8. Sounds so good. I’m making it now. My question is can I use plain sugar free yogurt in place of Greek yogurt?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Sorry I wasn’t able to respond sooner. I’m sure you have already made this and figured out if it works or not. I have never tried regular yogurt. I imagine it wouldn’t change the flavor much but the consistency may be a bit thinner. Happy Holidays!

      • Using the unsweetened yogurt worked just fine. The dip was devoured in 15 minutes and I doubled the recipe. Will make this again. It was a hit! Thank you.

        • Nicole Harris says:

          Good to know, Kitty! I’m glad it worked out and that you enjoyed the recipe. Happy New Year!

    Just found your “Ahhh-mazing” recipe and after I get the ingredients (today) I’ll be making it! Since it’s just hubby and me, we might end up having it for dinner :o) Just one question…Is the cheese blend something that comes all mixed together? I’ve never seen that combination and I’m going to the store today so thought I’d ask in the hopes you see this soon. Thanks for your experiment!!!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Ruth! Yes, the shredded cheese blend comes mixed together. I usually buy mine at Trader Joe’s. But you can find a 4 cheese Italian blend at most grocery stores right next to all of the other bags of shredded cheese. This dip is always a HUGE hit with my family and friends. Enjoy!

  10. Farid says:

    That looks really good.

  11. If this tastes as delicious hot as it does unbaked….WOW! I took a few liberties with your recipe. I used one head roasted garlic since it’s such a small amount. I also used marinated artichokes and added a bit of the oil to the cheese, yogurt, mayo, garlic mixture. I sprinkled a little Penzy’s Greek seasoning into it. I didn’t use as much cheese as called for in the recipe. What I tasted after mixing it up was delicious! This was a great base for me to start from. Thanks for sharing.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Vicky! Your version sounds delicious! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do :D

      • Everyone loved it! The bowl was scraped clean. I think I will use two heads of garlic next time. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It’s pinned.
