This is a great bread that can be the perfection addition to any meal or you can serve as an appetizer. It tastes similar to hot artichoke dip.
1/4 cup butter
4 garlic cloves, pressed
1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
4 oz shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 french bread
salt & pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter and add garlic, cook about 30 seconds. Add artichoke, Monterey Jack cheese, parmesan cheese, and sour cream. Stir to blend, remove from heat and cool.
2. Slice bread lengthwise and scoop out some of the center. Crumble the pieces of bread and add to the mixture. Spoon the artichoke mixture on the bread and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese. Place each half on the baking sheet and cover lightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 25 minutes then remove foil and bake for another 5-8 minutes until the cheese melts completely. Cut into slices and serve warm.
