Baked artichokes with asiago cheese – no game day party can go without this special treat and it is very easy to through together in a pinch. Fresh lemon juice and basil brighten up this creamy dip. Perfect with toasted pitas – Happy Super Bowl!
Baked Artichoke Dip:
1 c. finely shredded asiago cheese
3/4 c. mayo – I like to use olive oil mayo
2 cloves of garlic – minced
1 small yellow onion – finely chopped
2 c. drained and chopped artichoke hearts (in brine)
1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 t. freshly cracked black pepper
1 T. chopped fresh basil
1/2 c. butter crackers or panko bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 400. Spray a small crock or gratin baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine cheese, mayo, garlic and onion. Add the artichokes, lemon juice, black pepper and basil. Pour mixture into baking dish and top with crackers/bread crumbs and drizzle lightly with good olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden and bubbly. Serve with toasted pita chips – Enjoy!
