It's National French Bread Day & heres a Killer Recipe

Today is National French Bread Day. And to celebrate I want to share a KILLER recipe that I got from a fabulous blog called Plain Chicken. I stumbled across this blog one or two months ago and I'm so glad I did.  Steph is real and so is her blog.....and down to earth.  And she has incredible recipes

Artichoke Bread
...and it's to die for!
    Doesn't this look just FABULOUS!  And it is!!!

 Artichoke BreadAdd this recipe to ZipList!

1/3 cup butter
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
4 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
½ cup sour cream
1 French bread loaf
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 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, parmesan cheese and sour cream. Stir to blend. Remove from the heat and cool. Slice the bread lengthwise and scoop out some of the center. Spoon the artichoke mixture evenly into the bread shell and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese. Place each half on a baking sheet and cover lightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 5 to 8 minutes or until the cheese melts completely. Cut into slices and serve warm.


This bread is really incredibly delicious. We LOVED it. And it's really not that hard to make. Try it I know you'll be sold on it too!!! I guarantee the men in your life will go nuts over it.

THANKYOU for  joining me today. Be  sure and check out

 this great blog. And please tell Steph that I sent you.

 Hope you  enjoyed my little celebration of  National French

Bread Day.  Rather tasty wasn't it.

Nann~ Let me count the ways I love this:

(1) Artichoke Hearts
(2) BREAD!
(3) Butter & garlic
(4) Cheese
(5) Sour Cream

The only way to make this better would be to add some potatoes :) Thanks for sharing this~ I'm definitely going to have to indulge! A couple of slices can be my dinner with a glass of wine when my husband goes out of town in a couple of weeks!

Thanks for all your sweet comments!
