Best Artichoke Dip Ever (and it's super easy)

Recipe credit for this one goes to my dear friend Susan Morrison.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cans quartered artichoke hearts, drained (un-marinated)
  • 1 pkg cream cheese, softened (You can substitute 1/3 fat but don't use non fat. Trust me on this one.)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 round loaf Shepherd's bread (may be called country french depending on where you live)
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375
  • In a large bowl, mix the artichoke, cream cheese, mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese.
  • Cut the top of the bread and scoop out the insides to make a bowl (set aside bread for dipping later).
  • Pour the mixture into the bread bowl and place on cookie sheet
  • Bake for 30 minutes stirring once half way through.

Serve warm with saved bread pieces and/or tortilla chips for dipping. Yum!
