3-Cheese Lobster Artichoke Dip

Gruyère ensures you’re not covering up the flavor that is fresh lob$ter

...dollar sign intended. I know this ain’t cheap, but if you can find fresh lobster, it’s hard to create a dip more satisfying. Crab meat would also make for a fantastic alternative to this - sometimes I even prefer crab. That’s a lie. I actually always prefer crab over lobster, but that’s me. According to my Twitter poll, 70% of you prefer lobster over crab. I think you are bonkers. I know lobster has a prestigious reputation and all but purely speaking on behalf of my tastebuds, we much prefer the salty decadence that is crab. Anyhoo, I’ve found the perfect 3-cheese ratio to make sure your lobster (or crab, or fake lobster, or fake crab) flourishes rather than drowns flavor-wise. I used 6 small, individual-sized gratins to bake, but you can use any shallow baking dish. Have your crackers ready (I prefer Ritz or a kettle-cooked potato chip) because once you see this baby bubbling over, you’ll wanna be prepared.

The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set
The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set

Grab the slotted spoon to stir and al dente-test pasta, the spatula for slicing and serving quiche and crumbles, and the spoon for everything else. Carved from olive wood that ages beautifully, these utensils also level up a tablescape—use them for serving salad, spicy slaw, and spaghetti. Olive wood has a natural oil finish, for stain resistance, a little shine and a lot of use. Use the flat, spatula-style utensil to divvy and serve quiche, brownies, berry crumbles and other treats best served warm.
