Did you know that your crock pot insert is oven safe up to 400 degrees? Just make sure you don't use the lid. If you are questioning my expertise you can confirm this information at Crock Pot's FAQ's!
This recipe I bake in the oven and then turn on low in the crock pot to keep it warm during a party. Enjoy!
Artichoke Cheese Dip
2 cups of mayonnaise
2 cups of grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups of drained, canned artichoke hearts (I've also used frozen)
several drops of Tabasco
2 clove minced garlic
2 teaspoons lemon juice
This recipe makes a lot so you may want to "half" it.
Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender (if you have a small processor do this in two batches). Mix until smooth. Spray Crock Pot with vegetable spray and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Move to crock pot on low to keep warm.
Great with rye or pumpernickel bread.
