How to Make Cheesy Artichoke Dip

A skillet with butter and some chooped onion and garlic along with salt and pepper.

Step 1: Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. When it foams, add onion and garlic, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cook until onion and garlic are beginning to turn brown in color, about 6 minutes.

How to Store Cheesy Artichoke Dip

It is hard to have leftovers when you make this dip!! But, if you have leftovers, store it in an airtight container for 4-5 days. Warm it till its hot and bubbly again in the oven.

How to Freeze Cheesy Artichoke Dip

You can freeze extra dip properly sealed in an airtight container in the freezer for about 2 months. Thaw it out before hand and warm in the oven when its time to eat.

Tips & Tricks

I love to serve with mini naan for dipping. Pita chips are also a great choice!

FAQs

What should I do if my artichokes are heavy on vinegar?

Use canned artichokes that have not been marinated in vinegar. Jarred artichokes, especially, can often be marinated in vinegar that can give them a strong flavor and you will risk getting that flavor in the dip.

How should I avoid my dip from being too runny or thin?

Using the flour to make a roux helps create a good base for the dip and keeps it from becoming runny later. Additionally, draining the artichokes well will make sure that there are no extra liquids getting added.

    The BEST dip I have ever tasted. Friends always request it when I offer to bring an appetizer. Too legit to quit.

    Delish! Just made tonight!! Wondering what herb you sprinkled on top? And I chopped
    My artichokes pretty finely—They didn’t look as pretty as yours did. Did you leave some artichokes partially whole towards the top of the dip for presentation?

    1. Yes you can absolutely leave some whole / halved or quartered towards the top! And thats parsley for garnish

    I have made it 4 times already over the holidays and I have received so many compliments. This is a great recipe and will be used by my friends and family as I have shared it with all. Thank you Gaby

    1. what size pan did you use?! i need to buy one so i want to make sure it is the right size for the dip. 12 inch or 10 inch?

  4. 5 stars
    This is SO good! I added one box of chopped frozen spinach and was delicious-brought it to a pot luck and was a crowd pleaser. Will definitely make again!

  5. Hey Gaby, this looks awesome and I’m think about making it tomorrow but would you be able just to use Gruyère cheese with the oatmeal and double the amount? Or some other type of white cheddar or something? I sometimes have trouble finding all the cheese at my store.

  6. 5 stars
    Can this be frozen and reheated a week later? I made this yesterday and didn’t think to half the recipe. We are going out of town for the weekend and can’t finish it, I would hate to waste it!

    1. ya - I would transfer it to a tupperware and freeze it. And when you're ready to eat it again, take it out, thaw it out and re-bake with some extra cheese on top!

  7. 5 stars
    This dip is always a huge hit at all the parties. So good and cheesy. I put pita, bread and corn chips for the side.
    You need to make this for your next party.

    1. A thickener you may want to experiment with is xanthan gum. I play around with it in place of roux and have had great results. Tapioca starch is another. I love the glutens, but not a fan of heavy, sometimes gloppy roux based dips.

  8. A favorite appetizer of mine now. Made this last weekend and everyone loved it! Served with naan but sometimes I use pretzel chips.

  9. Make your own naan...its literally flour, ghee, yeast, yogurt and a nice carbon steel pan to quick cook them stove top. They freeze well to in zip lock bags as well after cooling.

  10. Can you use the marinated artichokes? I happen to have two jars in my pantry... want to make this for our annual Oscars party!!

  11. I have tried many artichoke dip recipes over the years and this is hands down THE BEST. I made it last night as an appetizer and we ended up eating it by the spoonful as a side dish with broiled salmon and a green salad. Thank you so much for sharing!
