Christmas Day is always celebrated at Judy (White) and Rich Jesswein's home. She has been having Christmas Day for as long as I can remember. One dish she has often made is a delicious artichoke spread. A number of years ago, I asked her for her recipe. It follows:


  • 2 cups parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups Hellmann's mayo
  • 2 15 oz. cans of artichoke hearts
  • 1 tsp garlic powder -- (Note: if artichoke hearts are marinated, use 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • Sprinkle of paprika

Drain and cut up artichokes, mix together with cheese, mayo and garlic powder. Sprinkle top with paprika. Bake at 350 degrees until top is golden brown, approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour.

Serve with small cocktail rye. Most yummy.
