Hot Artichoke Dip

I was given this recipe by a neighbour – I’m not sure of it’s origin. It’s very tasty, particularly with a glass of Champagne!

Preparation and Cooking Time: 10 mins prep and 30 mins cooking

Ingredients:

1 x 300 grams jar of marinated artichokes (strained well, individually squeezed and chopped up roughly). Make sure you buy the ones in oil.

2 cloves garlic (crushed) I don’t always add the garlic

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (plus a little extra to sprinkle on top)

1/2 cup ‘S&W’ Whole Egg Mayonnaise (must be whole egg mayo, otherwise too vinegary)

Chilli powder to taste (optional – I never put it in)

Mild ground paprika

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Mix all ingredients except paprika
Place mixture in a 28cm oval ovenproof dish and pat lightly
Sprinkle extra parmesan cheese on top
Sprinkle evenly mild paprika
Place in oven, uncovered for approximately 30 mins or until lightly browned
Allow to cool for 5 minutes
Serve with fork or small knife and small biscuits.

This dip is even tasty to those who don’t like artichokes.

When I was a little girl, I had a plastic set of corning ware baking dishes with the original blue flower on them. I loved playing with them and pretended I was a chef on TV (back in those days there was only one cooking show run by the Sydney County Council). The corning ware little baking dish I have used was released about 15 years ago to commemorate the original. I couldn’t help but buy a set now that I’ve grown up.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful Mums xxxx

  1. Thanks Nike. Did you get a chance to read my letter to my mum? I’d love to know if other ladies write to their mums. Enjoy your special day tomorrow and take photos of the hand made gifts or bought gifts from Mother’s Day stalls you will be receiving. X
