Love me some artichokes!

I really, insanely love artichokes. Fresh, frozen, canned, in soups, in dips, baked, stuffed…. I love em. If you’ve never had artichokes, or aren’t particularly a fan of them(shame on you!), I urge you to try these recipes. There are my favorite artichoke recipes, and I promise you will love them. You probably won’t want to share!

Baked artichoke with gorgonzola and herbs. This is pretty much as good as it gets. A baked artichoke, with cheese and herbs in the middle. So fucking good.

Applebee’s hot spinach and artichoke dip. I rarely go out to eat, and when I go to Chili’s or Applebee’s, I always always get the hot spinach and artichoke dip. It’s creamy, cheesy, artichokey…. It’s delicious. The moment I saw this copycat recipe, I knew I would soon gain a few or ten pounds.

Fettuccini with chicken and artichokes. This recipe is simple and delicious, and not loaded down with sauce so you can really soak up the flavor of the chicken and the artichokes. So good!!

Stuffed artichokes. This stuffed artichoke recipe is kept simple with grated Romano and seasoning with a touch of olive oil, but man oh man, I could eat a whole batch in one sitting!

Spinach artichoke bites

A couple weeks ago I was at the grocery store, and I saw these delicious looking appetizers called “bags of gold”. It was like artichoke dip wrapped in pastry, definitely one of the tastiest things I’ve tried. I love spinach and artichoke, so they were a real winner for me.

Last night while I was on Pinterest, I saw a recipe on Recipe by Photo called spinach artichoke bites. Yes! I am making these tonight or tomorrow, depending how stressful my annoying ass customers are today. For now, you can find the recipe here, and enjoy this food porn I am about to unleash upon you!

UPDATE: I made these last night, and they were delicious! I did, however, make a few changes to the recipe. I swapped out the mayonnaise for sour cream, and used fresh spinach instead of frozen. I also added some shredded mozzarella to the mixture instead of sprinkling it on top before baking.
