Baking the dip in the actual bread shell makes it a very attractive dish, and it's very easy to clean up. Every time I serve this, people can't believe how healthy and veggie-filled it is. —Ella Homel, Chicago, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 3 jars (7-1/2 ounces each) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 round loaf (1 pound) rye or pumpernickel bread

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients. Cut a thin slice off the top of bread. Hollow out the bottom half, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. Cut removed bread into 1-in. cubes.
  2. Place cubes on an ungreased baking sheet. Broil 6 in. from the heat until golden, 2-3 minutes, stirring once.
  3. Place bread shell on an ungreased baking sheet. Spoon dip into bread shell. Bake, uncovered, until heated through, 20-25 minutes. Serve with bread cubes.
<b>Editor's Note:</b> Reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise is not recommended for this recipe. If any of the dip does not fit in bread shell, bake, uncovered, in a greased small baking dish until heated through.
