Roasted Garlic Artichoke Dip

My love affair with artichokes continues with this roasted garlic and artichoke dip. Last week Cliff asked me what recipes I was planning to make for the blog. One of the recipes I mentioned was artichoke dip. He said, haven’t we done that already? Of course, we had made spinach artichoke dip before, but this dip has no spinach, and it has roasted garlic AND a panko crust. Completely different!!! And besides, can you ever have too many cheesy, artichokey dips? I think not.

I have been faithful to my old spinach artichoke dip for many years. But, I think this new roasted garlic and artichoke dip might be taking its place as my #1 dip. Let’s start with the obvious. Did I mention that this dip has roasted garlic? And a panko crust? Those are two of my favorite things. If you have never had roasted garlic you are really missing out. Roasted garlic has a completely different flavor than raw garlic. It is sweet and spread on fresh bread, it is just heavenly! And panko, I love the crunch the panko added. PLUS, this dip has mascarpone cheese! Come on! Who could resist roasted garlic, panko, and mascarpone combined with artichokes? I certainly do not have the will power! I highly suggest you add this one to your list of go-to dips!

This one shot straight to the top of my go-to dip list.
