round dark loaf of bread
cheddar cheese, shredded
How to Make Baked Party Dip
1Bread should be unsliced.
3Cut a hole about 5" in diameter in the top of the bread. (If you wish, make a decorative zigzag pattern.)
4Reserve crusty part to make top for loaf and scoop out most of soft inside portion and save for another purpose.
5In skillet, saute green onions and garlic in butter until onions wilt. Do not burn!
6Soften cream cheese and cut into small chunks, then place in medium-sized bowl; add onions, garlic, sour cream and cheddar. Mix well.
7Drain non-marinated artichoke hearts and cut into quarters. Fold in artichoke hearts.
8Fill hollowed-out bread with this mixture.
9Replace top of bread and wrap in a double thickness of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
10Bake for about 1-1/2 hours.
11Remove foil and top of bread and serve, using thin slices of warm garlic bread as dippers.
12Note: The best part of this dish is when the dip is gone and all you have left is the bread, which is soaked in all those delicious ingredients. Just break the bread up and pass it around!
