The Real Deal – It’s Simply Homemade (Artichoke Bacon Dip)

by CHERI on November 23, 2010

I like to make things from scratch. I like knowing what is going into our food. My hubby is in college so creating homemade meals also saves a lot of money.

Sometimes I run out of time and I have to improvise. (I still do homemade from scratch-sometimes)

Sometimes I want to re-create something from a restaurant with out the cost of going out to eat.

I will share my tricks and share recipes with you. Do you have a Knock Off Recipe (it can be a restaurant, a name brand item or an easier way to make a meal) that tastes just like the real deal but saves you TIME. You can also submit recipe that are just TOO GOOD to take any shortcuts. If you would like me to share your recipes–(send me an e-mail and in the subject line put SIMPLY HOMEMADE RECIPE) In your e-mail please tell me who you are knocking off, what shortcuts you can take. If it is a tantalizing recipe that demands it be made from scratch them let me know. Sometimes it doesn’t pay to take the short cuts.


I have had a lot of Artichoke Dips at Restaurants and I think this one is a great KNOCK OFF- to any of them

Bake 350 degrees (till bubbly)

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1 Can PLAIN artichoke hearts, chopped

1/2 Cup parmesan cheese

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 dash cayenne pepper


1/2 pkg bacon, cooked & crumbled

(a couple of short cute–use the jars of crushed garlic-they last a long time.   Bacon-use the microwavable re-heat bacon or a pkg of real bacon bits in the salad dressing isle.)

Mix all the ingredients together and bake in a oven safe baking dish.  Serve with crackers or pita chips.
