Cheesy Artichoke BreadPosted by Katie on Jun 8, 2014 in Appetizer, Bread, herbs/vegetables, Italian, Katie Original, side dish, vegetarian | 9 comments
Are you ready for the most decadent bread you’ve ever tasted? I mean, how can you go wrong slathering a creamy cheesy artichoke spread on top of soft French bread? This recipe happened on a fluke, and I’m so happy I decided to photograph it before we devoured it. This recipe is all about using up leftovers, however, you can easily make a big batch of artichoke dip and use a full loaf of french bread. That is my plan the next time I go to make this bread.
I had a quarter cup of leftover artichoke dip and instead of eating it as an afternoon snack I decided to mix it with some mayonnaise, shredded cheese, and garlic. Within five minutes I had a cheesy artichoke concoction that was ready to get slathered onto the last of my soft french bread.
I served my cheesy artichoke bread as a side with spaghetti bolognese. But let’s be honest this cheesy artichoke bread was the star of our dinner. We were both fighting over the last slices. This bread is perfect to entertain with. Make the spread ahead of time and right before your about to serve dinner slather it on to the bread and bake for 8-10 minutes. This recipe is for a quarter half of a loaf of soft French bread (cut your loaf in half lengthwise, then cut it in half width wise. One quarter of the bread was used–got it?). So whether or not you have leftovers or simply want to indulge in the most decadent cheesy artichoke bread on the planet, give this recipe a try!
