Food Friday: Double Dipping! Part 1—Brit’s Pub Artichoke Dip

Okay, it may be late on a Friday, but I wouldn’t let you down. Most Fridays, anyway. It being February and past the holier-than-thou diet month of January, I think we can loosen up a little on the healthy stuff, plus I hear there is a big game this weekend. While I’m not a football fan myself, I will be hosting my 13th or so Superbowl party on Sunday. And lucky me, one of my guests is bringing something along these lines. Mmmm.

This, my friends, is luscious, hot, cheesy artichoke dip from Minneapolis’ famed Brit’s Pub. I say that like I’ve been there—this recipe comes to me from a dear friend (from Minnesota) who became more more dear to me when she made this and brought this in to work one day. (Thanks, Karen!) Heaven.

Try this one out on Sunday. It will be a score for sure.

3 14-oz cans artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped                                                                                                                                                            8 oz cream cheese

1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup green onion, sliced

    Thanks! I have a great spinach dip recipe that is somewhat like this, but we wanted one that had the artichokes, too. Yum!

    The texas caviar sounds good, too. Think I can leave out the corn for hubby who doesn’t like it IN anything?

    Oh sure, it’s such a blend of things he won’t miss it. (But you should stir some into yours–the sweetness adds a nice touch.)

    Well, I have been there and it’s a cool pub if you ever get there. It’s super fun in the summertime. Being on the rooftop doing lawn bowling in the middle of downtown is just neat, regardless of the interior which really looks like what you would think an English pub would look like. Since, I’ve never been to England, I couldn’t tell you if it is authentic or not…but it LOOKS authentic.

    That recipe looks super yummy. I will be making it really soon!

    […] a few test runs to see how they would taste.  Last year I won the best tasting appetizer with an artichoke dip recipe posted by Anna, so I was hoping to win two years in a row.  Which??  Ahem…I did! 😉  I just squeaked by, […]
