21 Jan Recipe Thursday – Artichoke Bread
A great take on the classic artichoke dip.
The artichoke bread is essentially an artichoke dip that is baked in a loaf of Italian bread until the crust of the bread is perfectly light and crispy; the dip is nice and warm and the cheesy topping is melted and golden brown. YUMMO! Thank you Kevin Lynch and closetcooking.com
