Artichoke/cheese sammie

I love the hot artichoke dips that many restaurants serve.So do both my girls and family.Today, the girls came for lunch and we took several jars of the marinated artichokes, chopped heck out of them, added a bunch of green onions both white and some of the green finely sliced. We mixed in mayo then added some freshly grated parmesan and some shredded monterey jack cheese. We piled this onto pre-toasted english muffins that we buttered, then ran them under the broiler til the cheese melted and got gooey and bubbly. They were really good like this. With them we just had some fruit salad. Made a nice lunch and one I'd make again.

I love artichokes too It was fun today. I love it when they can get away and it's just the three of us for lunch. Yes, the kids are so much better, Carson still has a little cough and Olivias nose is still like a faucet, but they are up and about and busy, busy, busy Dh is trying to learn all he missed when ours were little, but the kids have him out foxed..He was watching them wednesday for a few minutes while I made lunch and all of a sudden I hear him shout, and here he came with Livi, she had fallen and bumped her nose on a little play table and there was blood all over..She was fine, DH, was white faced, Ethan and Carson followed behind whith huge wide eyes..wheeee, watching all four of them at once sure keeps me busy
Now, aren't ya glad ya asked?

Asiago is a great cheese to use in these style dips.

Here's my version of something similar. I adapted it from what a local little bistro around here serves - I nearly always order it when I'm there.


Crab & Artichoke Crostini

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

One 6-ounce can crabmeat
One 15-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained & chopped
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons sour cream
Ground cayenne pepper to taste
Paprika (optional)
Approx. 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
Six 1" thick diagonal slices of an Italian or French baguette

Mix first 4 ingredients together, along with a few dashes of cayenne pepper to taste. Stir in one cup of grated Parmesan.

Spread mixture thickly on top of slices of bread, top with additional cup of Parmesan cheese, & sprinkle lightly with a little additional cayenne pepper, or regular paprika.

Bake in oven for approx. 15 minutes or until heated through. If you prefer a browner topping, you can broil the pieces briefly.

Serve as an appetizer, or as a light supper along with a green salad.

Thanks Breezy,
the crab sounds like a great addition. Will give it a try.

Has anyone tried frozen artichoke hearts instead of canned?

Yes - & I've always, always, ALWAYS been soundly disappointed, so I stopped buying them & now always use canned.

The frozen ones were always tough & 9 times out of 10 had freezer burn. The problem is that artichokes aren't exactly considered "mainstream" vegetables, & so they sit & sit & sit in the freezer case way, way, way too long.

The canned varieties, when drained & rinsed, have always been sweet & tender, regardless of brand. I'll never bother with the frozen ones again.
