My #1 Appetizer – Baked Artichoke Parmesan Dip

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe one of my fave appetizer dips.

I often bring this to get-togethers and pot lucks. And I get asked for this recipe a lot so I might as well share it here…that’s the whole point of this blogging thing right!

Been making this one for a long long time, but it’s still a favourite because it’s just so yummy.

Not sure where the recipe came from, but my guess is a magazine. That’s where we all used to get our recipes …..you know….before Pinterest changed our lives forever.

I’ve tweaked it here and there over time, to create my current version.

You can throw this together in 5 minutes, bake it for 20 minutes and you’ve got yourself an excellent, guest worthy appetizer. Serve it up with crackers, veggies or tortilla chips.

Enjoy and have a fantastic weekend! 😊
