Recipe: Cheesy spinach artichoke bread
FOX19 - Here's a recipe from Karri Perry with the Blue Ribbon Kitchen Blog.
1 loaf of store bought Italian Bread-- or French Bread... just a mid-sized loaf with soft insides.
1 can of quartered artichoke hearts-drained (I used Reese brand)
1 cup of frozen spinach-thawed and drained very well
½ cup chopped red bell pepper-seeded and cleaned
2/3 cup good mayonnaise (I used Duke's)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (I used the not fancy store brand)
1 cup of Monterey Jack shredded cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon Penzey's roasted garlic
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Mix everything together in a medium bowl. --except the bread
Slice loaf of bread in half -horizontally-through the middle
Spread mixture onto the cut side of each loaf.
Place topped loaves on a lined baking sheet- I used parchment-easy clean up!!
Top each loaf with an additional sprinkling of Monterey Jack cheese- I like it cheesy so I used 1/2 cup on each side.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven on the middle rack for
30 minutes or until the bread is hot and the cheese is melted.
Slice and serve.
