Toasty baguette slices are topped with a creamy artichoke spread and then broiled until bubbly in this easy appetizer that’s fancy enough for a party…or for a more casual variation, bake it up as a hot dip instead!
Did everyone have a fun time ringing in the New Year last night? It will probably take me until March or so to wrap my brain around the fact that it’s actually 2014, but at least the first day of the year went down as a good one. My family of five spent today relaxing together, putting away Christmas decorations, planning for the upcoming year, and snacking on leftovers from our little New Year’s celebration last night…leftovers that included this yummy, addictive Artichoke Bruschetta!
Don’t you love a recipe that can be adapted for the occasion? Because this one totally can. This cheesy artichoke mixture spread onto baguette slices made for a fun, fancy (yet fuss-free!) little appetizer last night. I think these bites would make a perfect menu addition for a baby or bridal shower or any other party requiring finger food.
And truth be told? I’ll probably make this recipe again in about a month as a Super Bowl snack. But when I do, I’ll spread all of that artichoke goodness in a baking dish and bake it until golden brown and bubbly, after which we’ll scoop it up with chips, crackers, or toasted baguette slices. Can you say yum?
Hope your 2014 is off to a great start, friends! Here’s to a fabulous year!
