Artichoke and Sweet Garlic Bruschetta

Prep time 14 mins
Cook time 10 mins
Other time 15 mins
Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1 bruschetta)
Look for bottled garlic in jars in the produce section of your local supermarket. It's slightly sweet and mellow in flavor compared to minced fresh garlic. White balsamic vinegar is used when the flavor of balsamic vinegar is desired but the dark color is not. It's ideal for use in salads, pasta dishes, and sauces for fish and poultry.

Ingredients

  • 1 (9-ounce) package frozen artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon bottled chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices diagonally cut Italian bread (about 8 ounces)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat broiler.

  2. Cook artichokes according to package directions; cool and coarsely chop. Combine artichokes and next 8 ingredients in a bowl; stir well.

  3. Place bread slices on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes on each side or until lightly toasted. Divide artichoke mixture evenly among bread slices. Broil 1 minute or until cheese melts.
