Heavenly Ham and Artichoke Au Gratin Dip
This simple recipe makes a great crockpot appetizer. Forget bland store-bought dips and make this bold and vibrantly flavored warm dip instead. Your guests will love you for it. You can use an au gratin potato mix to make this and liven it up with the addition of artichoke hearts, ham and cheddar cheese soup, for a rich, creamy and full-flavored appetizer dip. The green onions add crunch and color to this crockpot appetizer recipe and go nicely with the cheese flavor of the dip.
You can either serve this crockpot dip with toasted bun halves or tortilla chips for dipping. Since it contains vegetables, you will not want to serve vegetable crudités for dipping into it, but bread, crackers, tortilla chips or corn chips would all be nice. This is a hot and delicious appetizer which is hearty enough to be one of your most filling dishes at a buffet. You can leave the crockpot on low with the lid off and that will keep the dip warm for hours.
If you have having a dinner party or buffet, making your appetizers in a crockpot is a wonderful idea because it means you can make them in advance and forget about them while you focus on doing other things. This ham and artichoke dip recipe takes seven or eight hours for the flavors to blend and merge together perfectly, so start this off in the morning and just leave it all day. What could be easier?
