Author: WonkyWonderful
  • 2 heads of Roasted Garlic*
  • 6 oz Frozen Artichoke Hearts
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp Cracked Pepper
  • cups Shredded Cheese Blend**
  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.
Recipe Notes
*If you are timid about garlic, use only one head of roasted garlic.
**You don’t need this exact cheese blend but something similar with melty cheeses.
This recipe makes approximately 3 cups of dip.
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

    • Nicole says:

      Yes, I’m sure canned artichoke hearts would work. Just make sure they are not marinated artichoke hearts because I’m not sure how that would turn out. Enjoy!

    • Trader Joe’s sells frozen artichoke hearts.

      • Nicole Harris says:

        That’s where I get my frozen artichoke hearts!

      • Katie says:

        I found frozen artichokes at Super Target. I had never seen them before! I haven’t made this dip yep but can’t wait to try it!

  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.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      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:

  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!

  9. Ruth Graber says:

    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 😀

      • 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.


  12. Vanessa says:

    can this be assembled the night before and then baked? Have you tried that? I’m making it for thanksgiving appetizer but not sure I will have time to assemble. Thanks!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Vanessa! I have not tried that. But, I think the dip will be fine if it is prepared the night before. Enjoy!

  13. Paris Robinson says:

    I have two questions. Can I put spinach in itwhat it take from the recipe? & do I have to use frozen artichoke hearts?

    love this recipe can’t wait to try it


    • Nicole Harris says:

      Yes, spinach will work. Just make sure it is completely drained. I have only used frozen artichoke hearts. But, some readers have commented that they used marinated artichokes and enjoyed it.

  14. Sandra McKenzie says:

    Hi Nicole,

    I’m looking forward to making this for the first tiime and taking it to a casual Christmas gathering that will have about 20 people. My question for you is how much dip does this make? Will I need to double the recipe? Also, your photos looks fabulous and I’d like to buy an attractive dish that is sized properly for the recipe. Can you tell me what size of dish you used for the photo and was this just one quantity of the recipe that was pictured?

    Thanks a lot!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      I cook mine in a 27 ounce baking dish and that holds the entire amount of dip that this recipe yields. I would recommend doubling the recipe for 20 people. This dip usually goes fast!

  15. I’m planning on making this tomorrow for our family Christmas. I’m going to have to skip the oven and put it in the crock pot. I was just wondering if anyone had tried that method? It sounds amazing and I hope the crock pot method does it justice!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      I haven’t tried the corckpot. But, I’m sure it will work. You just won’t get that bubbly browned top. Enjoy!

      • I made it in the crock pot this weekend and it was delicious! Everyone loved it. Thank you for the recipe. I will definitely be making this again in the future!

  16. Rhonda says:

    Ok so when I found this recipe I was like ‘lick the bowl clean? I don’t know….’ Well, I just made it for the first time and YEP. Licked the bowl! It’s in the oven now. I cannot wait to eat it. Om nom nom. Happy holidays!

  17. So delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  18. Jessica says:

    Thank you for this recipe. I am actually a teacher with a school garden with artichokes and garlic ready to be used. The kids are going to make this for their fathers for father’s day and put it in a jar. I have plenty of garlic growing and ready but not enough artichokes in the garden. I really would like to use partial fresh artichokes the kids are so proud of and the frozen. Does anyone see this being okay? Thank you all for your thoughts. I appreciate it. The kids will make this next week.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Jessica! Fresh artichoke hearts should work fine. Just make sure to precook them (boil, stem or grill). Enjoy!

  19. Heyya.. I really would like to use partial fresh artichokes the kids are so proud of and the frozen. Does anyone see this being okay? Thank you all for your thoughts. I appreciate it.The bowl was scraped clean. I think I will use two heads of garlic next time. Thanks for sharing this recipe.. 🙂

    • Nicole Harris says:

      I think fresh artichoke hearts will be fine. You may want to steam or boil them first so that they are nice and soft. 🙂

  20. Amanda says:

    I simply cannot WAIT to try this! A few conversions will need to be made because I’m in Australia, and we don’t have frozen artichokes or that cheese, but I’m assuming jarred artichoke hearts and a blend of perhaps havarti, parmesan, sharp cheddar, and perhaps some gruyere may work nicely? Am I safe to assume whole-egg mayonnaise was used? I might make three batches… one for me, and a double batch for me for later. Hahaha.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Amanda! Some readers have substituted jarred artichokes and said that it worked great. Whatever melty cheeses you prefer should be fine. As far as the whole egg mayo … I’m not sure what that means. Maybe we have different terms here in the U.S. The mayo was definitely full fat if that is what you mean. Enjoy 😀

  21. Kelly Donald-Miller says:

    I just made this dip for a New Year’s Eve party and it turned out so yummy. The only thing I did differently is I did not have any plain Greek yogurt but I did have a garlic and dill Greek yogurt dip. I also used canned hearts. The flavors with the roasted garlic, the dill Greek dip, the canned hearts and the cream cheese, oh my, so good. Thank you so much for such a yummy recipe.

  22. Caroline says:

    Amazing! I peeled the cloves and roasted them on the stove top with olive oil. Used some of the garlicky oil to coat pieces of naan that were baked along with the dip. Divine. Used sour cream instead of Greek yogurt but I can’t imagine it made much of a difference. Thanks for sharing!

  23. Ohhhhh this sounds so delicious!

  24. Victoria says:

    Hi, if I’m roasting the already-peeled garlic cloves that come in the resealable bag instead of heads of garlic, how many cloves (roughly) would that equal?
