  • 400g round cob loaf
  • 2 x 390g tins artichoke hearts, drained
  • 140g light mayonnaise
  • 140g Parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), grated
  • two pinches of garlic salt
  • small bunch chives, finely chopped
  • extra crusty bread chunks, crackers or crunchy tortillas, to serve


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Slice the top off and hollow out the loaf. Break the artichoke hearts into chunks, place in a bowl with the mayonnaise, Parmesan, garlic salt and a good grinding of black pepper, then mix well.

  2. Fill the hollowed-out loaf with the artichoke mixture. Pop the lid back on, wrap the loaf in foil, then bake for 20 mins. Remove the foil and give the mixture a stir, then rewrap and return to the oven for a further 45-50 mins or until the filling is piping hot.

  3. Remove from the oven, scatter over the chives and dive in.
