Yeah, that one. So today, I am sharing with you a delicious snack that you can add to your super bowl food spread!
Whether you are looking for easy gluten-free recipes or vegetarian recipes for game day, we have got you covered. This artichoke cheese dip will quickly disappear once you guests taste it.
How To Make Warm Olive and Artichoke Dip
Because of the name, I am sure that you guessed that olives and artichokes are the stars of this dish. They pretty much run the show in the flavor department.
For this recipe, I used canned olives and canned artichokes. If you have one of those fancy olive bars in a local grocery store the olives and artichokes from there will work too!
The other ingredients are:
- Cream cheese
- Mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
It is a pretty simple list of ingredients. The best part is that you can easily prep this artichoke dip recipe ahead of time and then bake it on game day!
I am not kidding when I tell you that once your guests see this hot artichoke dip become all golden and bubbly, they will not be able to resist it!
Sidenote: Here is a picture of our Cabi gazing out the window. I had set up for the photo shoot of this recipe and she immediately jumped into the window. I am pretty sure she is day dreaming of the recipe because the smell from the oven was quite amazing!
You can use an electric mixer (affiliate ad link) to mix all the ingredients, but if you let the cream cheese soften enough you can easily mix by hand. So basically, you will toss all ingredients into a bowl and mix!
Then you are going to spread this delicious artichoke dip with cream cheese into an oven safe dish. For this recipe I used this tart dish (affiliate ad link). It is shallow, has a pretty edge and just fit the bill over all.
If you aren’t serving this to a large crowd, you can bake this olive and artichoke dip in individual ramekins (affiliate ad link). Not only does it help to equally divide up the servings but it is all about portion control.
You’ll totally understand what I am talking about once you taste it. I literally ate half the batch on the first recipe test!
All about the gluten-free crackers:
Crackers are very important when it comes to your dip! The crackers should be a manageable size, sturdy and of course delicious! Sizes may vary and we did just that for this recipe.
We choose two Crunchmaster crackers for this recipe! These bite sized crackers are all about whole grains and seeds! They do not contain any GMOs, gluten and artificial colors and flavors! Circling back to that gluten-free part, the crackers are actually CERTIFIED gluten-free!
We also choose to use some of the Crunchmaster Vegetable Cheese Crisps with this dish. These crackers are sturdy and are made with seven real vegetables! Yes, seven!
You can find carrots, pumpkin, beets, red bell peppers, spinach, kale and onions in these delicious crackers. From this variety, we featured the Parmesan Romano!
The Multi-Seed Crackers I used come in many flavors. From this variety, I used Rosemary and Olive Oil. You can also score the crackers in Roasted Garlic, Artisan Cheesy Garlic Bread, Signature Buttermilk Ranch and Dill and Chile Pasilla.
Can I make this ahead of time?
Yes, you can prep the entire recipe ahead of time. Cover and put in the fridge for 1-2 days. Then when you are ready to eat this delicious recipe, you can bake it.
Can you freeze this warm artichoke dip?
I have not tried to freeze this artichoke dip, but I would guess if you prepped it, then froze it covered you’d be okay. I’d let thaw completely and bake. I would not try freezing after you have baked it.
Can I make this dairy-free?
Yes, you can make this a dairy-free hot artichoke dip by using dairy-free cheeses and a dairy-free cream cheese. I haven’t made it using dairy-free ingredients, but the sub is simple enough it should work well!
Can I sub out the artichokes?
Yes, if you don’t like artichokes, you can sub them out. You can up the amount of olives or add in another vegetable.
Can this reheat?
Yes, it can reheat and still does taste great. But the consistency changes a bit on the second reheat!
