Title: Baked Party Dip
Categories: Appetizers
Yield: 6 Servings

1 Round loaf dark bread
5 Green onions, chopped
6 Garlic cloves, crushed
2 tb Butter
8 oz Cheese, cream
2 c Cream, sour
12 oz Cheese, cheddar, shredded
1 cn Artichoke hearts

Bread should be unsliced. Preheat oven to 350. Cut a hole about 5″ in
diameter in the top of the bread. (If you wish, make a decorative zigzag
pattern.) Reserve crusty part to make top for loaf. Scoop out most of soft
inside portion and save for another purpose. In skillet, saute green onions
and garlic in butter until onions wilt. Do not burn! Soften cream cheese
and cut into small chunks, then place in medium-sized bowl; add onions,
garlic, sour cream, and Cheddar. Mix well. Drain non-marinated artichoke
hearts and cut into quarters. Fold in artichoke hearts. Fill hollowed-out
bread with this mixture. Replace top of bread and wrap in a double
thickness of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake for about 1-1/2 hours. Remove
foil and top of bread and serve, using thin slices of warm garlic bread as
dippers. Note: The best part of this dish is when the dip is gone and all
you have left is the bread, which is soaked in all those delicious
ingredients. Just break the bread up and pass it around!
