A recipe from my most recent "Taste of Home" magazine by Heidi Jobe, Carrollton, Georgia. "Move over, spinach-artichoke dip. Bacon adds an extra layer of smokiness to this fabulous recipe. And you might want to double it-we never any leftovers."

How to Make Lemony Bacon-Artichoke Dip

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard drippings, reserving 2 teaspoons in pan. Add artichoke hearts and garlic to drippings; cook and stir 1 minute.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, onion salt, salt and pepper until smooth. Beat in lemon juice. Fold in artichoke mixture and half of the bacon.
  3. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining bacon; top with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with pita wedges.
