Prosciutto Artichoke Dip

Happy SRC reveal day my darling munchkin readers!
Artichoke Prosciutto Dip - She Eats
It’s true, another month has passed and it’s time again for the Secret Recipe Club. Good LORD where does the Summer go? It seems like just yesterday I was hiking up my tights and buttoning my cardigan against the bitter West coast cold.. Which let’s face it, really isn’t that bitter.
Speaking of tights, have you ever noticed how friggin high they come up your waist?? Perhaps your legs are of a normative length but I’m only 5’4″ and I find that my tights really do come all the way up to my bra. Now, I’m pretty sure I’m buying the right size and I’m fairly confident my bra isn’t hanging around my waist…at least I hope not. I’m not 80 yet – despite what my 9 o’clock bedtime might dictate. But seriously, why are they so fucking long?? And regardless of the length, I often find I’m still pulling on them all day, making sure they aren’t falling down around my knees. They should either come up with a length that is suitable for a 5’4″ sized woman or manufacture some kind of bra-tight garter contraption that keeps the buggers up where they stretch to. Okay, obviously I’m getting way off topic here.

Focus! Right! SRC!
This month for SRC I was given Kelley @ The Culinary Enthusiast. You can also find her on facebook, twitter, or pinterest. Kelley loves cooking food, thinking about food, talking about food, and of course, eating it. Obviously we have a few things in common. Let’s be friends, Kelley. 
Her recipes all look fantastic. Again, something we have in common… jk, jk everyone. And after great deliberation I chose one. Other posts up for consideration were:
So what did I end up selecting to make this month? Kelley’s rendition of an Prosciutto Artichoke Dip

As always, I tried to stick to her recipe as much as possible. After all, it’s “make something from another person’s blog”, not “be inspired by another person’s blog and make up your own recipe”. I did however, make a couple changes.
First, I followed her suggestion and chopped everything up rather than leave it whole.
Second, I substiuted cream cheese for whipping cream because that’s what I had in the house. I also threw in a few sundried tomatoes and a bit of garlic. Otherwise, it’s her ingredients all the way. And by all the way, I mean aaaaaaallllllllll the way. I gave it up. Because it was friggin incredible. And delectable. And probably one of the best dips I’ve ever made. It’s not gonna flatter your waists, my darlings, but by god it’ll flatter your taste buds.
I give you: Artichoke Prosciutto Dip!

Artichoke Prosciutto Dip




Yield 6 servings


  • 20 Oz of Preserved Artichoke Hearts, drained & roughly chopped.
  • 50g of Thinly Cut Prosciutto, roughly chopped.
  • 1 C Cream Cheese, room temperature.
  • 1/2 C Gorgonzola Cheese, crumbled.
  • 1 C Grated Parmesan Cheese.
  • 1/2 C Pine Nuts, lightly toasted.
  • 1 Tsp Fresh Sage, roughly chopped.
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced.4 - 6 Sundried Tomatoes, chopped.


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. As that heats, gently whip the cream cheese in a large bowl until soft and fluffy. Fold in the rest of the ingredients, save for 1/2 C of the parmesan. Mix well.
  3. Pour into a lightly greased 9 X 9 baking dish and top with the remaining parmesan. Place in heated oven and bake until bubbling and golden on top - about 25 minutes.
  4. Serve with some of your favourite bread or crackers, or as Kelley suggests, with a fabulous grass-fed steak.
  5. Eat.

    You have me drooling over here, there is nothing in the recipe that I don’t love, can’t wait to try it! I love being a new member of SRC, it is so much fun, just a bummer I was orphaned this month 🙁

    Wow, this looks so amazing! I definitely need to make this soon! And yes, I totally agree with you on the whole tights thing. Hate them to death.

    Oh this looks lovely and delicious – I do love artichokes in nearly any form. And tucked into a melty, bubbly, cheesy dip is no exception. Speaking of artichokes, have you ever tried grilling artichokes on the BBQ? So fabulous.
    PS. Even us tall girls have the same tights problem. I think the issue is all in the crotch to waist ratio – apparently tight makers think that women have reeeeaaallllyyy long crotch to waist distances that need covering. Tight makers must be men, that is the only explanation.

      i have not! i will have to google that shit and figure out how to do it 🙂

      p.s. agreed. they’re always trying to reign our bodies in and make them super slim and long and slender. we should make our own g.d. tights.

    Love your write up…put a smile on my face while having a rough day….Thanks!

    Gratin looks great…I always see recipes that have artichoke hearts but have yet to find a can in a grocery store near me (I’m in Markham…suburb of Toronto)…or maybe I’m not looking hard enough. If I do find one will have to try this out (minus the prosciutto since we don’t eat pork)…Happy Belated SRC Reveal Day!

      i’m glad to hear it Asiya!

      i’ll be near you soon! I’m moving to the danforth village (from victoria BC) at the end of the month. when i find some – and i will – i’ll send you a package 🙂

    That looks so decadent and yummy. Anything with pine nuts in it is instantly awesome to me. Too bad they’re so pricy in North America. They’re a lot less expensive in Korea. 🙂

    • Kristy Lynn
      August 4, 2012 at 11:39 PM

      agreed. apparently it has something to do with the fact that it takes SO many years for the trees to start producing nuts. at least that’s what the cashier at the grocery store tells me… i think commodification and fetishization have a wee bit to do with it.
