The Creative Princess: Ecce Panis Bread and Creamy Artichoke Dip

Ecce Panis Bread and Creamy Artichoke Dip

As you know, Easter is just around the corner.  If your family is like my family, there is always a TON of food.  Other than pickles, olives and cheese, we never really have anything to snack on before the big meal though.

This year, I am going to make Creamy Artichoke dip and bring a loaf of Ecce Panis bread.

Have you heard of or seen this bread yet?  It is in the bakery/deli department of your local Walmart.  Oh! MY! GOSH! is this bread good!  I usually like to make my own bread but sometimes, I just don't have the time.  Ecce Panis makes it easy with their Bake at Home breads.  For this recipe I picked up the Neo-Tuscon Mini Boule.

I noticed on the package it gives a short description of the bread and even suggests what to pair the bread up with!  

My Walmart only had two options of Ecce Panis, the Mini Boule and French Baguettes.  I also picked up the French Baguettes for a recipe for later this week.  I will let you know later what I think of those.  If they are anything like the Mini Boule, I know it will be AMAZING.

 It only takes a few short minutes for the bread to bake and become a nice golden brown.  Your kitchen will be filled with the "Yes, I DID work all day to make this bread from scratch" smell.  Fresh baked bread is one of my FAVORITE smells.

For the dip you will need minced garlic....

Artichoke Hearts....

Mayo, Parmesan Cheese, Worcestershire Sauce and a few dashes of Hot Sauce.

Mix all of your ingredients together and place in a 1qt baking dish, I used a pie plate, then bake.

{Creamy Artichoke Dip}

1 Can (13-14.75oz) Artichoke Hearts, chopped
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
3/4 Cup Mayo (or Miracle Whip)
1/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2-3 Dashes Hot Sauce

1 loaf Ecce Panis Neo-Tuscon Mini Boule

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  
Place in lightly greased 1qt cooking dish and place in oven.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest.

While dip is resting, place bread in oven and bake 8-10 minutes following package instructions.
Remove bread from oven and slice thinly or tear into small chunks (if you want a more rustic look).
If you have sliced your bread top your bread with the dip.  If you tore your bread into chunks, you can use as a dip.

I would love to hear what you all plan to take for your #EasterMeals!  You can see more of my shop in my Google+ album.
