There’s just no better way to eat hot Artichoke Dip than with toasted bread…so why not combine the two?

(That’s what I did–and he was VERY excited)

- Sour cream – Light sour cream works really well and keeps the calories lower.

What Is Bruschetta?
Traditional bruschetta (pronounced brusk-ETTA) is toasted Italian bread drenched in olive oil and served with garlic or tomatoes. Our version uses French bread for larger servings, and swaps out the tomatoes for hot spinach-artichoke dip.
Can You Serve It Without the Toast?
The bruschetta spread is also great as a normal dip. If you choose to make it that way, follow the instructions below but just bake in a baking dish for about 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and delicious. Total yum. Enjoy!
Can I Make These Ahead of Time?
Yes, you can. Even though these are supposed to be served immediately, fresh and hot, you can store leftovers in a container in the fridge and heat as needed. They taste delicious even the next day.
The toaster oven is a great way to reheat bruschetta. It returns it back to the melty cheese and crisp edges of the bread, and as long as you keep an eye on it, won’t overcook it.
