Garlic Artichoke Bread

Think of this as Cheesy Garlic Bread meets Baked Artichoke Dip, only it’s 50 times better than that 🙂

Ingredients
2 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar and mozarella cheese blend
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup plain greek yogurt
1 large shallot, finely minced
1 small loaf ciabatta bread ( Really any type of bread would be fine)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
*I added about 1-2 tbs of fresh chopped basil and it was sooooo delicious!

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350-375

In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, melt the butter until foamy. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat, and stir in artichoke hearts, mozzarella, cheddar, Parmesan, sour cream and shallot until combined.
Slice/open your bread) Place the bread open face side up on the baking sheet,  and spread the cheese and artichoke mixture overtop. Bake until cheese is melty and it starts to brown and bread is hot. I finished it off with a few minutes under the broiler to get even better color! Then cut bread into servable size pieces and serve right away, while the cheese is still nice and melty and delicious.

I made this for a group of friends and they all seemed to enjoy it. I defineitly did! This would be great as an appitizer or side dish. Also you can totally make this ahead. I actually make the artichoke cheese mixture the day before and then just spread it on the bread and baked it and it turned out fan.tast.ic!

Enjoy!
