Hot Artichoke, Spinach and Bacon dip

Total Time

This grew from my original recipe for artichoke dip. It's good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove a lid from the loaf of bread. Scoop inside of bread out, leaving about a 1/2 inch shell.
  2. I baked the lid and the soft insides for 5 minutes, then broke into chunks for dipping.
  3. Mix together all ingredients except paprika, and pile into bread shell.
  4. Sprinkle over paprika, and bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbling.
  5. Serve with vegetables and crackers to dip (I just like to rip the bread shell apart though).

I made several dips tonight for a get together I had and this one went down the best, with everyone wanting more and the recipe.. I made as is but knew I wanted to make more mix so upped ingredients slighlty. I was a little naughty with the parmesan. Whilst I only added a little more on other ingredients I double the parmesan cheese. But my goodness was this just totally delicious. I do not think the lemon juice overpowered the dip at all like the other reviewer had stated, I thought it really inhanced the flavour but I guess all of our tastes are different. A reallt great dip Jan and it has gone straight into my favourites.

I finally figured this out, but was not completely impressed with the flavor. The lemon juice needs to be cut back to about 1/2 tbsp. It was a little overwhelming to say the least. A little salt and pepper to taste and some garlic would've been fantastic.

Oh YUM!!! Everyone liked this, and one guest said that she could make a meal out of it! :) I used turkey bacon (4 slices) instead of pork and used light mayo and sour cream. For oven temp., I used 375F and that worked well. Also, I made the dip a day ahead and refrigerated it then warmed it in the microwave before pouring into the bread bowl and baking.
