On Monday, March 5, Shawn Hines of Knoxville Catering & Special Events was profiled on WBIR‘s Live at Five at Four. Click here to watch the piece online.
Shawn and his wife, Marla, are great clients and friends. Following the profile of Shawn’s life on the road cooking for stars, Shawn did a live demonstration of how to make his signature Artichoke & Sun Dried Tomato Dip which he had recently served to Miranda Lambert and her road crew. The completed dish was left for the team at WBIR, who raved over it! I must confess, I had my fair share as well. Completely delicious! Here‘s the recipe:
Knoxville Catering’s Artichoke & Sun dried Tomato Dip
½ Cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped
1 14-oz. can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 8-oz. package of shredded Swiss cheese (2 cups)
½ Cup sour cream
¼ Cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 Tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese (to be sprinkled on top)
Combine all ingredients except Parmesan in a large mixing bowl; stir well. Transfer mixture to an ovenproof, shallow baking dish. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven until until heated through (about 20 minutes). Serve with thinly sliced and toasted baguette.
Serves 8 as an appetizer.
