From now through the new year I’m all about party food! Bite-size appetizers, mini desserts, and simple dips are some of my favorite things to make, probably because most of my favorite involve cheese or bacon and I like any excuse to eat either of those! Melinda’s Bacon Artichoke Dip uses both, plus it has artichokes in it. Do you like artichokes? I have to admit I refused to try them for years because I was sure I wouldn’t like them but now I love them. If I see them on a menu I have to try them!

Melinda came up with this recipe all on her own, inspired by the delicious chicken artichoke bites we made last year. This time she left out the chicken and added a few different flavors of cheese. The smoked Gouda really brings out the smokey flavor of the bacon and I especially like the Gruyere because it has a nutty flavor when it is baked and it melts so nicely.

You can make this dip the day before and then bake it right before you are ready to serve so it helps relieve some of the stress on the night of a party. Of course it isn’t just for parties, Melinda made it for us a couple of weeks ago and we chowed down on it for lunch…don’t judge! It’s great on toasted bread, crackers, or even baked in mini phyllo cups.
