Wanna know what is the best thing about this dip? You can eat the whole thing in one fell swoop!
Although, it’s not just the edible bowl that’s awesome here, it’s the flavor that really puts it over the top. Freshly baked artisan bread is absolutely amazing, the texture and the taste. The best part about artisan breads is the perfectly crispy crust on the outside and soft, spongy, aromatic inside. When you fill it with creamy, cheesy, mushroom and artichoke dip…well that’s just heavenly.
I know it’s heavenly because I’ve had plenty of artisan breads in my life, they are the best. That is why I do and will continue to miss it so much. I’ve actually been doing really well handling the whole gluten free thing. So far, the hardest part was probably this bread bowl.
Since gluten doesn’t like me, I couldn’t eat this tasty dip with this tasty bowl so I settled for the dip without the bowl. It was a little tough watching my husband enjoy the bread and the dip and then hearing how much my in-laws enjoyed it, but I felt a little better by the fact that they really liked this recipe.
If you are like me and can’t enjoy the wonders of artisan breads, rest assured that you can still enjoy this dip very much.
To make this GLUTEN FREE:
1- Of course, don’t make it in the bread bowl. You can use a cast iron skillet or a baking dish to bake the dip.
2- All ingredients here are gluten free, you just have to be careful when buying them. Most cheeses are gluten free but DO still read the ingredients list to make sure there is no gluten like wheat, barley, rye, or malt listed. (Also watch out for triticale and some oats.)
3. Make sure to read labels on shredded cheeses because some companies use flour to keep cheese from sticking. Make sure to note labels on mayo and sour cream as well. From personal experience and reading through brand’s statements, most Kraft, Daisy, and Philadelphia products are gluten free, but still do check labels.
4- Choose gluten free dippers. Tortilla chips are commonly gluten free but again, read the labels first. There are also several potato chip and cracker options out there that are gluten free.
