Artichoke Dip Sliders. So good. I mean, how can they not be? They are filled with a very popular cheesey dip. And they are served on Kings Hawaiian rolls. The only thing that could make these better is if they somehow had chocolate in them. On second thought, that would probably be kind of gross.
Chances are you have your own recipe for artichoke dip. I find this is one of those personal preference things. But they generally vary only slightly. Feel free to sub your fave recipe. Mine is far superior, but that’s ok, go ahead and still make yours…The dip can be made ahead of time. I love dishes like that for entertaining. Don’t you? The King’s Hawaiian rolls are already slider size and have the perfect sweetness to accompany this salty, tangy dip. I don’t want to get gross, but I’ve been known to eat these Hawaiian rolls, heated in the microwave, with butter, for meals. Nothing else, just the rolls. And I love every minute of it.
Make the dip. It wouldn’t hurt to make a double batch. With the leftover dip you can serve it with tortilla chips for those who don’t feel like eating a sandwich at the moment. Or you could just eat it for breakfast. The star of this show is the unmarinated artichoke hearts and the garlic. Oh and the cheese. These ingredients play really well together.
Once the dip is all bubbly and golden, you can start making the sliders. Simply toast the rolls (this will help them to not get soggy as quickly and provide a nice little crunch) then dollop some dip on top. It is as easy as making, well, a sandwich.
Are you salivating? You should be. These are delicious. Maybe I should start a new blog. It can be all about making dips in to sandwiches. I already eat onion dip on my hamburgers so I KNOW that would be good.
These sliders are perfect for game day entertaining but also great for BBQs, weeknight dinner, movie night, baby showers, bat mitzvahs, and Tuesdays.
