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

cooking spray


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!
