  • 8 ounces Parmesan cheese, freshly grated (about 2 cups)

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste, if needed

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

    If you're cooking the dip in the oven, preheat and place rack in the center of oven.

    (If you're microwaving the dip, skip this step.)

  2. Coarsely chop the artichokes:

    Using a chefs knife, coarsely chop the hearts into small pieces.

  3. Mix the ingredients and place in baking dish:

    In a large mixing bowl, mix together the artichokes, Parmesan cheese, and mayonnaise. Taste the cold mixture and add salt and pepper to taste, if needed.

    Add the mixture to an oven-safe or microwave-safe baking dish.

  4. Cook:

    Bake at 350°F oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until the mixture is bubbly and heated through.

    If microwaving, heat on high 5 to 6 minutes, pausing occasionally to stir, until the mixture is bubbly and heated through.

    Simple Tip!

    For a lightly browned top, stick the fully cooked dip under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes. (If you used the microwave, make sure the baking dish is oven safe.)
