“I found this recipe more than 15 years ago, and it has been requested every time I’ve been invited to a party,” writes Robin Klawinski of Eagle, Idaho. Since this dip is heated in the microwave instead of the oven, it can be ready to serve guests in mere minutes.


  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 6 ounces brick cheese, shredded
  • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • Crackers and fresh vegetables


  1. In a 1-qt. microwave-safe serving bowl, combine the sour cream and mayonnaise. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until bubbly, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the brick cheese, artichokes, Parmesan cheese, lemon peel, garlic powder and pepper. Microwave on high for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted, stirring several times. Stir in parsley. Serve warm with crackers and vegetables.
