This Killer Artichoke Bread is artichoke dip in bread form.

I think this Killer Artichoke Bread appetizer bread solidifies that I am in fact a carbaholic.


I love bread and it loves me. But our love affair has to end. It’s just not a healthy relationship for either of us. It’s always calling to me. Come eat me. Come lather some butter on me. Toast me and dip me in warm soup. It’s a bit one sided and frankly I’m feeling smothered.

I’ve told myself we’re going to break up soon. But before we do, we had one last hurrah. A cheesy, artichoke laden farewell.

The bread is perfectly done when the cheese on top just starts to get those beautiful brown toasted freckles.

I halved the recipe thinking that there was no way my family could eat even half. So wrong. This is definitely an easy, inexpensive appetizer for a crowd. It’s like Spinach Artichoke Dip (minus the spinach) on a loaf of bread.

  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 (14-ounce can) marinated artichoke hearts, drained well and chopped
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 French bread loaf about 12 ounces

  1. Preheat your oven to BROIL.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the artichoke hearts, Mozzarella cheese, Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese and sour cream to the skillet and stir to blend. When completely combined remove from the heat.
  3. Slice the bread lengthwise. Spoon the artichoke mixture evenly onto the bread. Broil for about 4-7 minutes or until cheese has melted an bread is hot. Do not walk away. Watch the bread closely or it could burn.
