Game Day and Party Favorite – Easy Cheesy Artichoke Dip Recipe
This cheesy artichoke dip has been my go-to recipe for parties and game day celebrations for years. What I love about it is that it’s so easy to assemble and bakes quickly in under 20 minutes.
I was introduced to this recipe many years ago at a family gathering and I was hooked.
Who would have thought that artichokes could be so delish? But they are. And, the reason is that when you pair artichokes with cheese and melt it in the oven, well, it’s like a match made in culinary heaven. Truly.
What I love about this recipe is that it can be assembled a day ahead of any party. Just wrap well and refrigerate. Then, when you are ready to serve it up. Just preheat your oven, bake, remove, and serve hot.
What you’ll love about this recipe is that it doesn’t require many ingredients–which is great for any party budget–and time spent on preparing this appetizer.
In fact, you probably already have most of the necessary ingredients on hand, so this recipe will come together in no time at all.
The basic ingredients are jarred artichokes, cream cheese, and shredded mozzarella or a mix of Italian cheeses (or both), a few spices and whola! instant appetizer.
You can keep the cleaning to a minimum, if you mix the entire artichoke dip in an oven-proof serving dish.
Then all you have to do is place this vessel directly into a preheated oven and once cooked through, serve as is.

For this recipe, I like to place a party tray or bowl with corn chips, celery, toasted bread rounds or pita chips, alongside the dip.
You’ll be amaze at how fast your guests will gobble this easy cheesy artichoke appetizer. Enjoy!
