Hot and Cheesy Jalapeno Artichoke Dip in a Bread Bowl

IMG_0589I have no words for this post.

Ok, that’s a lie. I always have something to say.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane and discuss the beauty that is Jalapeño Artichoke Dip. I originally created this recipe after trying the version they sell at Costco. Yeah. That stuff is legit.

Well, browsing my site yesterday as I usually do, I thought making that dip would be a great idea, but it would be even better heated up.

So I did. Heat it up. In a bread bowl. With more cheese. Because my name is Lauren and I have a food blog. Also a strange addiction to cheese.

Why yes I do have 6 different varieties in my fridge at all times, why do you ask?

If you thought this dip was good cold, you HAVE GOT TO TRY IT hot. It’s aaaaahhhhh-mazzzzzzz–iiiiiiing.

Here’s how you do it:
IMG_0540Make the Jalapeno Artichoke Dip as seen here.IMG_0536Then grab some round bread….better known as a boule and cut out the center.IMG_0539Once you remove that, tear out all the soft insides! Save this for later…..trust me. *Do not let your 4 year old eat it all. This is an important step.IMG_0543Fill the bread bowl up with the dip and bake for 20 minutes.IMG_0547After the timer goes off, remove it from the oven and top with some grated mozzarella cheese.IMG_0553Switch your oven over to broil and get that cheese melted.IMG_0558Hello hardcore broiler. IMG_0563Since I first got my KitchenAid 36-inch Dual Fuel range, I have LOVED the broiler function. It’s seriously the most even-browning broiler I’ve ever seen and/or used. Does that make sense? It browns bread and melts cheese perfectly. Just don’t walk away because your food will be perfect in literally one minute or less. It’s hot, man.
IMG_0600ANYWAYS, once the cheese is all hot a bubbly, dive on in!! IMG_0603Hello gorgeous.

If you have a party coming up and need an appetizer, this is the one for you. OR if you just happen to love bread and cheese, we’ve got a winner. Here’s the printable. Enjoy your weekend 🙂

  2. I might just have to cancel some weekend plans and make this! I usually have about 4 cheeses hangin’ out in the fridge, so in my opinion you having 6 is something to be proud of! Anyway, love this recipe and your blog, thanks for sharing!

  5. Wow that looks amazing. I am also a cheese fiend! I live in Wisconsin so I always have a few on hand and am amazed because everything is better with cheese on it. (and the same can be said for bacon)
