Hot Artichoke Dip
Two 14 oz. cans artichoke hearts, drained
One 8 oz. block cream cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
2 green onions, chopped
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper
To begin preheat oven to 350. Add one can of artichokes, the cream cheese, and mayonnaise to bowl of food processor. If you don’t have a food processor do small batches in blender or simply chop and stir together. Sprinkle in cayenne pepper to taste. Add green onions to the bowl. Pulse mixture 6 to 7 times. You don’t want to liquefy it, just get artichokes all chopped up and mixed with the other ingredients. Mix in parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Roughly chop artichokes from the remaining can. Get them down to bite size pieces. Add artichoke pieces to dip and stir together gently. Pour mixture into ovenproof safe dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes til heated through and bubbly. Serve with white button mushrooms….or a spoon.
