Meet the Sullivans: Artichoke Dip with Fontina

Artichoke Dip with Fontina

Who doesn't love a warm cheesy dip? This is a great one and it was pretty easy to make! I skipped the wine in the ingredients because some of the kids would be eating it and might not like the flavor if the wine were included, but if I were making it just for adults I would have definitely added it.

Ingredients
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced small
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 cans (14 ounces each) whole artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
1/3 cup dry white wine
4 ounces Neufchatel cream cheese, room temperature
2 1/4 cups cubed fontina cheese (about 3/4 pound)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
8 pitas, each cut into 6 wedges

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add artichokes and wine; cook until liquid evaporates, about 8 minutes.
  2. Remove skillet from heat and stir in Neufchatel until blended. Fold in 1 1/4 cups fontina and parsley. Transfer mixture to a 2-quart baking dish; sprinkle with 1 cup fontina. Bake until golden and bubbling, 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss pitas with 1 tablespoon oil; spread on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm dip with pita chips.
