1 (1 pound) loaf
Monterey Jack cheese, cubed
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
grated Parmesan cheese
2 (10 ounce) cans
artichoke hearts in water, drained
shredded Cheddar cheese
green onions, diced
I made this for New Years Eve last night. I got away with using only 5 Tbsp. of butter when browning the bread with the garlic. I grated the Monterey Jack because I felt it would melt easier when baking. I used just one can of artichokes which I thought was plenty. Make sure you cut up the artichokes before adding them into the cheese mixture. I mixed the cheddar cheese and green onions directly into the mixture instead of sprinkling on top and added a bit of seasoning salt. I mixed the bread in last and then stored the bread mixture in a bowl in my fridge. When I was ready to bake it later that night I let the cheese/bread mixture sit out to soften a bit before I spread it into the hollowed out bread. Definitely cook it at 350 for about 30 minutes for a great result. After cooling for a couple of minutes, I sliced it into chunks for appetizers. It's very rich but very tasty. Just one note about a previous reviewer saying something about this being "bad artichoke dip". I've made artichoke dip tons of times and this obviously intended to be a different type of recipe.
This was bad. I have never made an artichoke dip before and this dip does not sell me on artichokes.
I wanted to make this recipe for a dinner party but was alittle concerned by the directions (or lack of some key info). I made a few cooking adjustments and it really turned out great. Everyone enjoyed it! Here is what I did:
1. Be sure to use a long "larger diameter" loaf of bread, like the artisan kind. I don't think this will work without a hefy loaf of bread.
2. You only need to use about 2/3 of the required "stuffing ingredients" (i.e. Monterey Jack cheese on down). That will be plenty to fill your loaf. I made the full recipe and had lots left over that I couldn't use for this.
3. As others mentioned "broiling for 10 min." would never work. I baked (without adding the cheddar cheese and green onions) for 20 - 25 min. in a 350% oven. I then added the cheddar cheese and green onions and broiled for 5 min. until bubbly.
4. To serve: I sliced each loaf half down the long way and then came back and sliced each quarter length into 1 1/2 inches easy to eat portions.
Everyone loved it!
Excellant. Always a big hit. My suggestion would be to cook it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. jfg
This was absolutely fantastic! Added just a bit of chopped pepperoni for an extra bite and followed the other suggestion of cooking it at 350 for 30 minutes (those big cubes of monterrey jack take a bit to melt). My family absolutely Loved it. Will definitely be making it for the next party I attend.
I used french bread because I don't enjoy the taste of sourdough, and forgot to top with my green onions (oops). But regardless of these changes, this was fantastic. It flew everyone loved it, and I got tons of compliments, I almost felt guilty because of how easy it was to make :).
This was AMAZING!
I've been making this loaf for 10 years, but had lost the actual recipe - I was ecstatic to find it here so I can pass it on to friends. It's ALWAYS a hit, even for people who swear they don't like artichokes!!
