This is the kind of dip you want to sneak downstairs for in the middle of the night and lick right off your fingers! It’s got the smoky flavor from bacon, the earthiness of artichokes and the cheesy goodness of 2 different types of cheese– mozzarella and parmesan. This is the kind of dip you can pop into a crock pot and take to the big game– just make sure you double the recipe, because it’s going to go faster than Odell Beckham heading toward the one yard line! Whoop!
Looking for a good beer pairing? Try a Belgian-Style Witbier. The crisp coriander and citrus notes of a Belgian-style Witbier help cut through the richness of the cheese while letting the flavors of creamy artichoke and bacon take center stage. This Witbier’s effervescence also helps cleanse the palate with a zesty, slightly spicy touch.
