Hello folks and welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen. Here’s a little something/something to set out and help take the edge off everyone’s appetite while supper’s cooking. It’s my Crazy Good Artichoke Bruschetta and it comes with my heartfelt apologies for not having an actual pic of the finished dish for y’all. I’m not good about remember to do that before it’s gobbled up and this one disappeared quickly!
“Crazy Good Artichoke Bruschetta”
1 baguette, sliced in 1/2 thick servings
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 jar (7.5 oz) marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 jar (2 oz.) diced pimentos, drained
1/3 cup chopped and pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 cup chives and onion cream cheese
Folks, we’ll begin by brushing one side of a baguette with olive oil. We’ll turn this bread over, oil side down on ungreased cookie sheet and set it to the side. Meanwhile, we’ll take a medium bowl and mix together our drained and chopped artichoke hearts, along with a small jar of diced and drained pimentos, a third cup of chopped Kalamata olives and a 1/2 cup of chives and onion cream cheese.
Last step! We’ll spread this mixture over our bread and bake at 400 degrees for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. ENJOY! That’s my Crazy Good Artichoke Bruschetta and it’s good eating from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours!
