Parmesan Artichoke Dip (easy to make)

Parmesan Artichoke Dip is rich, creamy, and packed with artichokes & fresh parmesan cheese. It’s all topped with a buttery crumb topping and baked until golden and bubbly.

This dip is a variation of our famous Spinach Artichoke Dip and a party favorite! It can be made ahead of time and always gets rave reviews.

Ingredients

This recipe has a slightly lighter consistency compared to our spinach artichoke dip and the flavor of the artichokes is very forward!

CREAMY BASE: Cream cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream make for a creamy and slightly tangy base that is the perfect consistency.

ARTICHOKES: This recipe uses marinated artichokes which are different than canned artichokes. Marinated artichokes are in oil (not water) and are well seasoned.

If you use canned artichokes, you’ll need to add some extra seasoning (1/8 teaspoon each dried basil and oregano with a bit of salt & pepper).

CHEESES: Parmesan adds bold flavor to this recipe while mozzarella gives a nice creamy texture. Gruyere is another great addition to this recipe.
