However you want to serve this, as an appetizer or just for dinner, this Cheesy Artichoke Bread is going to be a hit at the dinner table!
Artichokes are way up there on the list of foods I love. I love them steamed or stuffed, most of all fried, (hard to believe I know) But I’ll eat them any pretty much any way I can get them.
So why not marinated artichoke hearts on a loaf of ciabatta bread covered in cheese? Yep. I’m in.
The wife and I were going back and forth on this, if we should make it a “dinner” recipe or an “appetizer recipe. Then we decided not to care and let you guys decide.
Then I suggested that we could make this bread as a “Meatless Monday” option! ‘Cause if I’m not getting meat for dinner, then I definitely want something covered in cheese.
Quick, easy, and tasty. Here’s what I did…
First, I put some olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder on each half and stuck it under the broiler for a couple of minutes to crisp it up so the bread doesn’t get soggy after you add the ingredients on top.
Then I chopped up the fresh herbs and mixed them together in a bowl with the chopped up marinated artichoke hearts. Layered the artichoke mixture onto each half of the ciabatta bread, covering it all up good.
And a little parmesan cheese never hurts…
Then put on some sliced tomato and top it all with shredded mozzarella cheese. We used Cabot shredded mozzarella for our Cheesy Artichoke Bread, it melts really well and I like the flavor the better than a lot of other shredded cheese.
Now just throw it under your broiler or bake it in the oven for a few minutes and you’ve got a delicious, cheesy bread dinner.
Or an app. Your call.
