Broccoli & Artichoke Dip

 

Broccolil and Artichoke Party DipI adore appetizers. Sometimes I even enjoy them more than the main course. I’ve even made a complete meal out of appetizers. We serve a large array of appetizers on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve so I’m always on the look out for a yummy new recipe.

One of my favorite all time appetizers is Roasted Garlic Artichoke Dip. I have a recipe that I love and I’ve given out to many, many friends. It is always the first appetizer to disappear at any party I take it to.

Today I’ve got a dressed up version for you.

In addition to the traditional artichokes, mayo, garlic, cheese etc., this recipe throws in some lovely red roasted red pepper and Green Giant frozen broccoli & cheese sauce to give it some great color. One of the problems with artichoke dip is it isn’t very pretty. It tastes great but it lacks in the visual presentation. Adding in some great red and green color helps pretty it up though. This recipe also uses an herb flavored cream cheese spread which makes the prep even easier.

    Hi Leigh Anne,

    Just wondering where the artichoke comes in with this recipe? I think it’s missing from the directions. Looks great!

    Thanks,

    Sam
