Hot Artichoke Dip

Only a few ingredients, check. Easy to prepare, check. Easy to serve, check. EVERYONE LOVES IT, check! I'm not gonna lie, sometimes I feel a little guilty when everyone makes such a fuss about this dish. It couldn't be simpler to make, but everyone thinks you went to a lot of trouble! Make it the next time you're having friends over for cocktails, and be sure to tell them you slaved all day in the kitchen.

2 14 oz. cans artichoke hearts(packed in water, NOT in oil)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350.
Coarsely chop artichoke hearts. Stir together with mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese. Place in a shallow casserole dish or pie plate. Sprinkle top with a little extra cheese. Bake until bubbly and slightly golden, about 30-40 minutes. Serve warm with your favorite crackers.

I like to serve this with a hearty multi grain cracker. The crunchy texture is perfect with the creaminess of the dip.
