Got a great new addictive appetizer you’re gonna love today: Hot Feta Artichoke & Sun-Dried Tomato Dip. Perfect accompaniment to bagel chips, tortilla chips or plain crackers.
I love traveling, do you? Fun to meet new people, sample new cuisine, see new things. Last week I spent some time in the south. My girlfriend there was telling me about a new cooking club she’s in. Every other month a group of twenty or so friends get together for a gourmet meal.
Each person brings a different dish from the same regional cookbook that was chosen ahead of time. (Different one each time.) Then they sample their way from appetizer through dessert, one course at a time. As they sample each dish, the cook that made it shares notes on the prep, whether or not they’d make it again, etc. I love this group cooking concept and would love to do something like it around here some day.
This Hot Feta Artichoke & Sun-Dried Tomato Dip was a big hit at their get together in Birmingham last month. I can see why. So tasty with bagel chips, crackers or tortilla chips. Quick and easy too. The garlic gives great flavor to the artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes in a creamy, cheesy base. This recipe comes from the beautiful Table of Content cookbook published by the Junior League of Birmingham, Alabama in 2006. (I have a similar recipe that uses parmesan and roasted red peppers.)
Mix sun-dried tomatoes, chopped artichoke hearts, crumbled feta, mayonnaise and minced garlic together in a mixing bowl. Transfer to a shallow baking dish and bake at 375° until hot and bubbly. Serve Hot Feta Artichoke & Sun-Dried Tomato Dip with bagel chips, tortilla chips or plain crackers.
Hot Feta, Artichoke & Sun-Dried Tomato Dip
- 4 ounces oil-pack sun-dried tomatoes drained and rinsed
- 1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
- 8 ounces feta cheese crumbled
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Pat rinsed, sun-dried tomatoes dry. Chop.
- Mix chopped sun-dried tomatoes, chopped artichokes, crumbled feta, mayonnaise and minced garlic together in small mixing bowl.
- Spoon artichoke mixture into shallow 1 1/2 quart baking dish.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
- Serve with bagel chips, tortilla chips or plain crackers.
This goes fast at parties, you may want to double the recipe.
I found oil-pack sun-dried tomatoes that were already chopped, saved a step.
I used Hellman's Light Mayonnaise and it turned out great.

You had me at “hot feta artichoke!” We’re feta freaks. Can’t wait to try!
Love how easy it is to make, sounds like a crowd pleaser!
Has anyone figured out how to make this in a crockpot ?/
Hi Janie, I haven’t tried it but guessing it should be pretty easy. I would just mix everything up, then put in the crockpot and make sure it’s heated throughly, maybe an hour on low? Just a guess, but I think it would do great. If you try it, hope you’ll comment back to let others know how it worked. This is a really addictive dip, hope you love it!
