Hot Artichoke Dip and TV

We have been living in on the road for almost 6 months now.

There are several things that I have learned to live without – a dishwasher, my scrap booking stuff, a closet, and television {among other things}.

It hasn’t been too hard to give up the ol’ boob-toob. But when I realized that the Super Bowl was coming up and we were going to miss it, I felt like I might cry. It’s not the actual football that I was sad to miss, it’s all the yummy snacks!

Well the other night, The Man and I thought we would try our luck at getting some Analog channels. To our surprise we got several, not to mention FOX!!

So… bring on the appetizers!!

My ALL TIME favorite appetizer is a hot artichoke dip. This dip is by far the easiest dip you’ll ever whip together.

It’s got a total of 5 ingredients, but it’s packed full of savory flavor!

The presentation is beautiful and elegant, but also simple enough for any sort of football watching get-together.

Start off by draining a 14 oz can of artichoke hearts. Be sure to get the kind packed in water, not oil or brine

Give the hearts a quick coarse chop.

Mayo being added to a bowl of chopped artichokes.













Toss them into a microwave safe bowl or dish.

Then add some mayo.

I am not a huge mayo fan, but I am willing to put aside our differences for the sake of this dip. If I am going to have to use any mayo I go with the Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil. It’s a reduced fat mayo with all the flavor of the original.

Next add some shredded Parmesan cheese. {You can also use the grated stuff if that’s what you have on hand.}

Our fourth ingredient is garlic powder.

Plenty of garlic powder.

Give it all a good mix and toss it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove it, stir, and replace for another 30 seconds. Keep doing this until the mixture comes together and gets nice and cheesy.

Last but not least, our sourdough bread loaf.

Cut at an angle towards the center, but be careful not to go through the entire loaf. We are trying to make a bowl.

This is what you’re look for- cheesy and irresistible.

Serve with the bread on the side, or with some crackers. I prefer a nice hearty Triscuit with a big heaping pile of hot artichoke dip on top.
