A friend at work made this and I had to have the recipe. It's so simple to make and sooo tasty. Plenty of cheese makes this a real treat on crackers or French bread.

The key to keeping this recipe from being "too greesy" is to not over cook it. Anytime a cheese/mayo/sour cream/whatever dip has greese floating on the top it's because it was over cooked and has "seperated". Every oven is different so cook just until the cheese has melted and then take it out and let the cheese continue to melt from the heat that the baking dish and the contents are providing. Once it is over cooked and has seperated you can't mix the greese back in. You have to eat it like that or throw it out like one reviewer did twice. I also would take the advice of another reviewer and use a lighter mayonaise or artichokes packed in water but if you keep a close eye on the dip it shouldn't come out greesy like some of the complaints have said. Thanks for a great recipe. P.S. use fresh garlic for more of a kick. Read More

I made this dip for the first time hoping that it would taste like my friend's recipe. I didn't like it at all. Making the dip wasn't difficult at all but having to use as much mayo as it called for just grossed me out. The artichoke dip was too greasy and it tasted too much like mayonnaise. Never again will I make this for me or for my husband. Yuck! Read More

I love artichokes but hate mayonnaise and I had a hard time trying to find a recipe that didn't call for mayo. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly but I substituted one can of reduced sodium cream of celery soup for the mayo. It was phenomenal. Everyone said it was the best they ever had. I noticed that it didn't get oily on top like I've seen other dips get and the consistency was very creamy. It was even great reheated the next day. I'm sure you could even substitute reduced-fat soup and have the same effect. It was great. Read More

I looked this recipe up to see how long the cooking time was and to see if it differed from mine. I use two cans of artichoke hearts packed in water and with that change I give it five stars. Some readers complained of the grease, that is probably from using the artichokes packed in oil. Read More

WOW!!! I made this for Christmas and it was gone quick! Everyone loved it. I only made a few changes by adding 2 garlic cloves instead of powder and I also added mozzarella cheese to the top so that it browned and was all yummy and crunchy.:) I tore up some french bread toasted it in the oven and served it with the dip. I don't think there was one person at the party that didn't request the recipe. Read More

Really good. Based on some of the other reviews and on personal preferences I did some things slightly differently. I used half parmesan half romano in place of the 1 c parmesan. I used canned artichokes (chopped well) in water to cut down on the grease. I watched it carefully in the oven and took it out as soon as the edges were crisp and brown. Big hit everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. Read More

This recipe was great I used two cans of artichokes (14.5 oz in water - not marinated in oil and light mayo) and served it with cut up pita bread. My guests went crazy for it and ate every bit! Read More

Great recipe and was very popular. Be certain and use all the parmesan cheese called for. I also used 8oz of sour cream 1/4tsp red cayenne pepper and baked it a little longer. Very good very easy. Read More

I loved this dip. The only thing I changed was I cut up the artichoke hearts even more. I didn't like getting a large mouthful of artichoke heart on my cracker. Read More
