Budget-Friendly Super Bowl Hot Collard and Artichoke Dip with Bacon

eMeals budget friendly hot bacon collard dip appetizer

We love football here at eMeals (we are based in Alabama, after all!), but what we really love about the Super Bowl is the food. Here’s a low-budget, high-flavor recipe to help you throw a winning Super Bowl party without breaking the bank.

This dip is a fun new twist on traditional spinach dip. Add crispy bacon to elevate this creamy dip from the regular season to Super Bowl-worthy.

Hot Collard and Artichoke Dip with Bacon
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 11/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • ½ cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 8 oz container sour cream
  • 8 oz container chive and onion cream cheese spread
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 16 oz package frozen chopped collard greens, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 14 oz can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp; drain and crumble.
