December is a month full of potlucks and parties. I’m going to do a short series of posts on easy dishes you can bring if (like most people) you’re short on time this month. All of these dishes have mostly disappeared at every party I’ve brought them to.
First up is an easy artichoke dip. A traditional artichoke dip is just artichokes, parmesan and tons of mayo. I don’t like it too rich so I use about half the normal amount of mayo and parmesan and add a few spices to give some extra flavor.
2 cans of artichoke hearts
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp curry powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain the artichokes well. Cut them up or separate and mush them with your fingers (if you’re lazy like me and don’t want to wash the cutting board and knife).
Mix artichokes well with remaining ingredients. Pat smooth in a small baking dish. Bake for 20-3o minutes or until hot and golden. Serve with crackers, bread or endive leaves (my favorite!)
